Acting Without Boundaries will present scenes, songs and conversations on the theme of "This is Me". Through the lens of disability, society and the performing arts, actors will explore what it means to be oneself, on stage and off. Actors from our Senior, Junior and Masters Programs will perform songs from our repertoire of musicals, act out scenes from past shows and share original material that centers around what it means to be a performer with a disability, what it means to be oneself, and, essentially, what it means to be human. Interaction from the audience is encouraged, with a question-and-answer opportunity after the performance.
