For the 2019/2020 school year, Phamaly actors co-wrote an education touring show which told the stories of famous artists throughout history who were masters of their craft and who live(d) and work(ed) with a disability (including Frida Kahlo, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Stevie Wonder).  The show illustrated how disability can function as a creative asset in people’s lives, and empower people of all ages to live and create in unique ways.
