pixeltracker

Students on the Autism Spectrum and others with and without disabilities defy the odds by creating an original musical production during global health crisis.

Join the performers of The Miracle Project on Saturday, October 23, 2021 for the premiere of this fully inclusive original musical film Journey to Namuh at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills or via live stream.

This original musical was created with and stars young adults on the autism spectrum and with other disabilities and their peers, created entirely during the health crisis. Each performer filmed and audio recorded themselves in their own home, and then were edited together to create a musical sensation.

The film was inspired by the best-selling book Uniquely Human by autism expert Dr. Barry Prizant. Journey to Namuh follows a group of neurodiverse young adults as they journey from a world that sees them as different, to a world that embraces their uniqueness and individuality.

The neurodiverse cast & team are joined by Broadway performer LaVon Fisher-Wilson (Newsies, Chicago) who plays a featured cameo role and Broadway performer & choreographer Josh Walden (Ragtime, A Chorus Line) who choreographed several musical numbers in Journey to Namuh.

This original film is premiering at a special fundraising event on Saturday, October 23 at 6:00pm at The Wallis and will be live streamed worldwide. Proceeds of the event will go to benefit the collaboration between The Miracle Project and GRoW @ The Wallis - the educational arm of The Wallis theater. The event, hosted by Brigette Lundy-Paine, star of Netflix hit series Atypical, will also honor longtime Miracle Project supporters Jesse Tohl, Jeffrey Tohl and Ellen Pressman.

WHAT: World film premiere of Journey to Namuh, The Miracle Project's most recent fully

inclusive original musical production created with and starring performers on the autism spectrum, with other disabilities and their peers.
