With a nudge from his grandmother Joanna, Art was in Oliver! For the past 3 months he’s been going to weekly performances. He had a tiny part and was incredibly nervous at first but at the end he made lots of friends, especially a retired couple Sherry and Bob. They adored Art, brought him snacks each week and reported back about all the ways he came out of his shell. “He’s a pied piper,” Bob said. Art taught a whole bunch of kids how to play chess and just loved being in a community of expressive people who accepted him. So happy for Art! Here are a few photos.
