Into the Spotlight Encore

Buffalo & Erie County Downtown Central Library – Mason O. Damon Theater

Thaddeus D. Matula (Dir), 99 minutes, USA, Western New York Premiere

A heartfelt story of how a script, a stage, and a theater program composed of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities celebrate their creativity, explore life’s complexities, and empower a community, in their own words and their own way—

The film follows a Dallas-based theatre troupe composed of individuals who are determined to write, rehearse, and perform their 11th annual original musical during the 2021-22 season.

Both on the stage and in the film, the documentary participants tell their story in their own voices.

This screening is a sensory friendly event. The screening will feature dim lighting, a lower sound level, open captioning, and ability for audience members to get up and move around as necessary.
