Spectrum Theater Ensemble
Spectrum Theatre Ensemble (STE) is a company of neurodiverse theatre artists, based in Providence, RI. STE was founded in 2017 with the common belief that theatre provides a unique, collaborative venue for the understanding and inclusion of all, and that our society and culture are stronger for it. We produce relevant, high-quality productions. We also provide leading initiatives and sensory-friendly consulting with other arts organizations and beyond. STE engages artists and audiences in developing social skills, empathy, and self-determination, as well as paving a path for successful and meaningful professional careers. STE’s Neurodiverse Inclusive Certified Entertainment (NICE) Program seeks to standardize and codify institutional sensory friendly practices to better serve neurodiverse audiences throughout the entertainment industry. The program seeks to educate, accredit, and support entertainment venues of all sizes.
