ABOUT TUNE TO A:

Tune to A is a play for young audiences about seeing past others’ limitations to illuminate their potential developed by Carly Neis, Cynthia Jimenez-Hicks, and Cameron Kneteman. The story was inspired by Carly’s real life experiences of growing up with cerebral palsy and her experiences in the theatre community. Ava, the central character, is a 13-year-old with cerebral palsy and a love of music. After a series of attempting to play several instruments, Ava’s contribution to the class is dismissed by her band teacher. With the encouragement of an ally and the confidence to use her voice, Ava’s true talent is revealed at a time when it counts most.
