    Jerry’s Habima Theatre celebrates 25 years with 
    The Addams Family


    They're creepy and they're kooky...but when Wednesday falls in love with a respectable young man, things get altogether spooky for the Addams Family. Based on the characters from the original cartoons and wildly popular ‘60s television series, The Addams Family puts the ghoulish group to the ultimate test on one fateful night that changes them forever. Come meet the family for this delightful musical comedy!

    For 25 years, Jerry's Habima Theatre has been Georgia's only theatrical company directed and produced by professionals that features actors with special needs. Each year, together with local professional actors from the community, Jerry's Habima Theatre presents a musical theatrical production to sell-out audiences and much acclaim. They are celebrating our silver anniversary with this kooky and inspiring production of The Addams Family!

    Georgia Down Syndrome Consortium

    What Really Matters WorkshopTogether we can do more! That is why the Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta, GiGi's Playhouse, the National Down Syndrome Congress, the Adult Disability Medical Home, and Emory Down Syndrome Center are partnering as the Georgia Down Syndrome Consortium to join forces on key programs and initiatives to serve the Down syndrome community in Georgia. After all, we are all in this together!  

    To kick-off this consortium, we are hosting a workshop on March 9 from 10:30 to noon. 

    What Really Matters?

    As parents, we are bombarded with information, to do list items, therapies and more but what really matters? What should we focus on and when?

    This workshop will focus on answering the What, Why, How and When questions parents have.

    We will discuss the top 5 concerns parents discuss with developmental pediatricians: Vision, Hearing, Sleep, Eating, Talking and other Behaviors, Therapy and Interventions, and how to prepare for the transition to adult services.

    There is something for every age group.
