I recently learned about an exciting organization called UNIFIED THEATER, run by the inpirational Micaela Connery. She had a vision ten years ago (when she was in high school herself) to establish an in-school arts organization for students with and without disabilities. Today, the program exists and thrives in nearly 50 schools across the country! She decided to reach out to the Education folks at Hartford Stage to help support their creative efforts. I know I learned A LOT myself from this student leadership summit, held at the CT State Capitol. How inspiring to work with students and advisors that are eager to include, rather than exclude. Sometimes it's nice to be reminded that theatre has the power to do just that: bring people together.
