EXCERPTS from Shakespeare, Swan Lake and Madame Butterfly are set to be performed by members of Ipswich-based Community Access and Transition Service.
Members from CATS have been rehearsing their production since March, and are ready to get up on stage next week and entertain friends and family.
The production, which celebrates this year's International Day of People with Disability, will feature skits adapted from theatre classics, including Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Julius Caesar.
CATS chief executive officer Katrina Johnson said the performance was a great opportunity for young people to entertain and showcase their talent.
"This performance by the CATS players is a fun and positive initiative that has helped our young people build relationships, develop various skills and increase their confidence," Ms Johnson said.
Writer and director Jan Paterson said she had noticed "real confidence growth" in the performers, noting they were not nervous about the upcoming production.
"It's just an opportunity to allow them to open up and laugh at themselves and laugh at other people," Ms Paterson said.
The two-hour production will be held at Ipswich Little Theatre on this Friday at 10am.
