The cast includes 15 actors with disabilities, including favorites Lucy Roucis, David Wright, Gregg Vigil and Amber Marsh, along with some newer faces.
Led by well known Colorado Director/Playwright Edith Weiss, Vox Phamalia is the result of an annual writing-to-performance development workshop, designed for Phamaly Theatre Company members to explore the process of writing an original piece, having it selected and taken to performance. The theatrical devices of improvisation, sketch comedy, dramatic story telling and music are all used in the workshop process. She tells us, "Having so many new faces in Vox really energized the show this year. This all new show goes places Vox Phamalia has not gone before. You can trust Vox for comedic takes on subjects that others consider taboo." Edith was awarded Best Direction of a Play by The Denver Post & Best of Westword, and named Best New Play by David Marlowe.
Now in its 24th season, Phamaly is an award-winning Colorado based Theatre Company comprised entirely of performers with a wide variety of physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities. Phamaly's mission is to inspire people to re-envision disability through professional theatre.
