ABOUT ENCORE STUDIO FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS:
Founded in September of 2000, Encore is the only professional theatre company for people with disabilities in Wisconsin and one of very few in the United States. Encore’s home theater is the Mary Dupont Wahlers Theatre at Encore! Studio, in Madison, WI; however, they also play to conferences in Madison, throughout Wisconsin, and beyond. Many of the Encore repertory actors have also appeared elsewhere in professional theater, video and film. Encore is a member of Theatre Wisconsin (an alliance of non-profit professional theatres throughout the state).
Encore has produced over fifty original productions primarily focusing on people with disabilities. Previous productions have included To Love or Not to Love, vignettes dealing with sexual abuse, relationships and human sexuality in the disabled community, Real Life, which premiered and played to sold-out houses in November 2004 and the critically acclaimed Lost Track which shares the journey of a young woman through the highs and lows of bi-polar disorder.
