Special Needs Arts Alert! -Handicap This!

Handicap This! is a stage show that tells the true story of substitute teacher, Tim Wambach, and student, Mike Berkson, a charming and funny teen with cerebral palsy. The two formed a friendship in 2001 that continues today. Their mission includes breaking down barriers and assisting those with severe physical disabilities through Wambach's non-profit Keep on Keeping On (KOKO). They want others to raise their voices, too.

Handicap This! will be at the North Shore Center for Performing Arts in Skokie, Il on November 4th. Find out more about the play here.
