Detour Company Theatre provides theater training and performance experiences for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities, giving them authentic opportunities to develop artistry, demonstrate courage and collaboration, experience joy and participate in the sharing of musical theater with the entire community.
These adults may have disabilities including (but not limited to) autism, cognitive and physical challenges, deafness and blindness, which require additional support and adaptive techniques. We work to create rewarding programming that supports existing skills and celebrates the development of new ones.
We also serve as a resource to the community--both to support those who want to work in the field of arts and disability, and to those who are eager to celebrate the talent, creativity and artistic potential of all people.

BIRDIES CAN ALSO MEAN BONUS BUCKS
Detour Company Theatre will receive a 10% BONUS on the total amount of pledges collected on our behalf during the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open Birdies For Charity Program.
HOW DO I PLAY BIRDIES FOR CHARITY?
You can pledge one cent or more for every birdie that will be made by the PGA TOUR players, Thursday through Sunday of the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. It's estimated that between 1,300 and 1,800 birdies will be made. Inclement weather may affect the total.
