Event description

Description

Please join us for Abira and the Mountain! This event is FREE but tickets are strongly recommended.

A play written by and starring Amy Stone, who was born with Cerebral Palsy and uses a wheelchair.

Abira is a princess in a wheelchair who is strong, innovative and beautiful, but she often feels secluded and lonely inside the castle. One day she decides to travel through her kingdom to see what she’s been missing. There, she meets others with disabilities, mental and life challenges, and she discovers that she can use her own life experiences to help them live better lives while also increasing her own self-worth.

A Place To Be's newest original family production of a fairytale about acceptance, empathy and love. Through its Same Sky Project, A Place to Be has delivered a message of hope and resilience through staged productions to Loudoun County’s public schools for the past seven years. Teens and young adults have been behind each of the productions, which use the fun and power of theater to broach serious subjects, such as stereotypes, suicide, and mental illness. The touring cast of 17 includes many young people who have their own stories of overcoming tough circumstances.

Sponsored by the ConnerStrong Foundation and Fairfax County Special Ed PTA
