Time Frame at The Kimmel Center

The actors of AWB Sr. and AWB Jr. took center stage at The Kimmel Center for the 7th Annual Philly Theatre Week event. Our actors performed an original piece called Time Frame directed by AWB Artistic Director, Neill Hartley and Musical Director, Maria Ceferatti. Additionally, our actors had direct input on the direction and creation of the script, resulting in a beautiful piece that was well-received during the event.

The performance was based on the theme of Time. Through the lens of disability, society, and the performing arts, AWB attempted to explore and celebrate time and how it affects our lives. The piece aimed to show how time can bring about new possibilities, new understandings, and a fresh start. Through the medium of songs, scenes, and conversations, the actors and audience connected and shared what life has taught them through the experiences afforded to all of us through time.

AWB relies on volunteers.

The first Sunday of every month volunteers assist our actors at workshops as they learn their lines and rehearse their parts. Our most dedicated volunteers support our actors throughout the year and are a part of the yearly performance. There are opportunities for people who want a creative outlet through set design, props and costume development. Great for early teens, adults and seniors!
