Acting, drawing, thriving: A new perspective on disability

"What do you picture when you think of someone with a disability? Despite the millions of people who live and thrive with disabilities every single day, we still tend to skirt the subject. The common definition of the word disabled is 'persons who are crippled, injured, or incapacitated.' "The Milwaukee Public Theatre begs to differ with this definition, and challenges us to instead envision talented men and women whose creativity and artistry has no crutches or bounds with Tap the Potential.”

Milwaukee Public Theatre is developing an innovative intergenerational project encouraging healthy lifestyles among Native American families through a grant recently received from the Forest County Potawatomi Community Foundation. Read more about Mino Ayaa, or Being Well.

Milwaukee Public Theatre’s philosophy plays out daily in the unique ways the company brings the healing power of the arts to individuals and the community. You will find MPT performers not only on stage, but in the workplace, in the classroom, and out on the streets . . . making a creative difference by using theatre arts in the places where people live, work and dream.
