And They Dance Real Slow in Jackson
Based in Jackson, Ind., "And They Dance Real Slow in Jackson" centers on a young woman named Elizabeth Willow who, due to her exposure to polio as an infant, uses a wheelchair and wears leg braces and feels bound by those elements of her life. She is a wonderfully bright and capable girl, but that potential is unseen by many. Adults pity her, children fear her and the few people who are willing to allow Elizabeth in their lives keep her at arm's length, anxious at what others may think.

"The story is a familiar struggle, but our world can't seem to get it right," said director Rachel Jantzi. "This show wrestles with how we treat those we don't fully understand and the consequences for one young woman when that understanding isn't offered."

Doors open half an hour before the show.
