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.”
