About AWB

Elevating people with disabilities

AWB is a unique year-round performing arts program providing an open forum for the creative and artistic expression for children, teens and adults with physical disabilities. The goals of our programs are to provide people with disabilities the opportunity to pursue their love of the performing arts, build their belief in themselves and their abilities while showing the world what people with disabilities can do!

Join Us

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!
