What's New at Unified Theater
Our wonderful Youth Leader Council members are hard at work on their blog posts, which we'll share throughout the year. Check out our first YLC post by UT Alum Michael Duff! Mike graduated from Simsbury High School this year and is in his first year at Farmington Valley Transitional Academy at the University of Hartford where he's working hard to start a university branch of Unified Theater. We love this post about the value of trying something new - something we should all be reminded of on a regular basis!
This past weekend, the Unified Theater Staff was lucky enough to spend the whole weekend with our brand, shiny new Youth Leader Council for their Orientation! UTYLC is a group of 10 inclusion rockstars from all over the country who know and love Unified Theater and who will work with us all year on improving UT in various ways, big and small.

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.
Kaite is a senior at Wellesley High School in Massachusetts and has been fostering inclusion, rocking dance moves, and leading her peers in Unified Theater for the last 3 years. Learn more about Katie's experiences with Unified Theater and how she puts the Spotlight on Ability...
