About the Event
ARTISTS: Including but not limited to, children and young adults ages 8 to 21 with specific needs and disabilities who are blind, visually impaired, speech impaired, deaf, hard-of-hearing, and use wheelchairs. Also included are children and young adults with emotional behavioral, cognitive, learning, and physical disabilities.
MENTORS: Children and young adults ages 8 to 21 who are neurotypical and non-disabled. They will be matched with an Artist of similar age and interests, and the two will work side-by-side through the entire rehearsal and performance process. Mentors are responsible for knowing their partner’s lines, songs, and blocking. Mentors are onstage during the production, and they are costumed to match or complement their partner.

Rehearsals will start March 6 at 5 pm and will vary for each Artist and Mentor. They will be 75 minutes, two days a week and gradually increase to five days a week from 5-8 pm in June.
