The Me Inside of Me.
Every year, the Invisible Theatre’s Pastime Players, an award-winning arts education program for mentally and physically challenged students, put on an original musical based on a year’s worth of instruction in music, drama and dance. Some components are the same each year, but the flexible framework allows individuals to shine in their own way. This year’s production, for example, features Shakespeare, an original rap, something called “The Pizza Song,” and excerpts from Annie. Come support—and see in action—the idea that when people come together, they really can make a difference. 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 8. Doolen Middle School, 2400 N. Country Club Road. Free. Details here.
