The film is about a group of performers in their fourth decade who continue to face their fears and show us why you can’t put them or musical theater in a box. “Simply Magical” chronicles 31 years of a volunteer theater company which blends the unique talents of professionals, amateurs, and members from the special needs community who are the true shining stars. Disabilities represented in the film reads like the old Jack Benny joke, “Everything from A-Z in the USA. Many of the special needs performers have Down syndrome, Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Traumatic Brain Injury just to name a few.

“Simply Magical is a heartfelt documentary that reminds us all that anything is possible as long as we believe. A must see inspirational film.”-Lynette Elliott-Assoc. Editor San Francisco Magazine.
