CENTENNIAL — His name is Mickey Rowe, and he’s an actor that performs in theaters all over the country.
And he has Autism.
Mickey will be in Denver to speak at a Gala for the Joshua School, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder attain the highest quality of life.
Mickey is the lead character in the Broadway hit and Tony Award winning play The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Fittingly, he plays a character with Autism.
The Joshua School, located in Centennial, serves 70 students ages 2 to 21.
It began as a heartfelt response of some teachers to serve kids with autism, and has grown into one of the top schools in the country.
The programs are individually designed to help the kids overcome any communication and learning deficits and behaviors, and to open the door for learning and growth.
As with most programs like this, it’s expensive to serve these students.
That’s why the school hopes to raise a lot of money during the April 28 fundraiser.
The Joshua School Gala will be at the Cable Center at the University of Denver, and I’m honored to be the emcee.
