Being There in the Beginning

Unified Theater may have begun with a handful of kids in a choir room, but it quickly inspired others to join. Conard High (West Hartford, CT) alum Steve Ferketic remembers going to the very first performance back in 2002.

Happy Birthday Kelsey!

Unified Theater wouldn't exist without an amazing woman named Kelsey.  Kelsey taught our founder, and our entire Unified Theater community, what real inclusion means and why it matters.  With Kelsey as their inspiration, our young leaders foster inclusion and put the Spotlight on Ability in their schools and communities from coast to coast.
