Dramatically Able on 13 News Now

A very special thank you to 13 New Now - WVEC for including Dramatically Able as part of their documentary series highlighting local nonprofit organizations making an impact in Hampton Roads. Dramatically Able, produced in partnership with Access Virginia, is a program that introduces all the aspects of the theatre to children who are blind and visually impaired. Through dramatic activities that help develop verbal and non-verbal communication skills, participants build self-esteem, increase self-awareness, and improve self-confidence.
