OCA, a Central Florida non-profit organization for families of individuals with autism and other disabilities, ended nine weeks of summer camp with a special theater performance of “Aladdin,” an original collaboration produced by OCAers Ivan Negron, Rachel Haas and Jeremy Ashton, that put a fresh twist on this classic tale.
The play was performed Aug. 8, at the downtown sanctuary of the First Baptist Church of Windermere. All campers performed, sang or worked on the production in some capacity, and it delighted the audience and campers alike.
From snake charmers to fire walkers, it was the epic journey of true friendship. The summer camps were held at West Orange High School and the Eastbrook YMCA.
