Acting Without Boundaries (AWB) is celebrating fifteen years of bringing theatrical opportunities to people with physical disabilities.

Since the inception in 2004, AWB has come so far, from a theatre workshop for four days at Saint Joseph’s University to now a year round program. The numbers of actors have increased over the years from eleven to now over forty.

Our programs have grown as well throughout the year. AWB is a year round program and we have three divisions. AWB Jr. for children ages four through teens, AWB SR. for teens and up, and our newest program AWB Acting Lab and Masters’ Program for adults. We put on three major productions a year and have an intensive four day summer workshop with a performance. AWB performs for schools and community events, for the past two years we have perform for Philly Theatre Week.
