Encore Studios, Wisconsin’s only professional theater company for people with disabilities, presents a funny and poignant show exploring the unique challenges and opportunities faced by parents and caregivers of adults and children with disabilities. It promises to be as entertaining as it is true-to-life. ALSO: Saturday, May 2 (2 & 8 pm). Through May 16.
Often blamed for a child’s behaviors and disabilities, this production examines historic elements of the challenges bestowed upon parents and those that support children and adults with disabilities, in a series of short vignettes. “Not Always A Parent” brings to life the colorful, the humorous, and the perilous in a production that only Encore could bring to life!
