Ticket sales will benefit non-profit theatre company kef productions and their education program, Story Shifters, a theatre arts residency specifically designed for students with medical, physical, and neurological impairments, including students on the autism spectrum and students with special needs. The goal of the program is to build literacy, fluency, and comprehension through drama and social interaction. Story Shfiters was created in 2011 by Kimberly Strafford, Director of Education and Outreach for kef theatrical productions. Since then, they have completed four residencies within the NYC public school special education district 75.
