Featured Event: Puzzle Piece: An Inspirational Musical about Autism

  • April 5, 2013 at 8:00 pm

de Laski Performing Arts Building, TheaterSpace, Room 105

Produced by A Place To Be Music therapy out of Middleburg, Virginia, Puzzle Piece was created by music therapist and writer, Tom Sweitzer. Tom has been sharing in the lives of hundreds of parents whose children have autism and was inspired by their powerful, dramatic, and sometime humorous stories.

Puzzle Piece takes us into the life of Paul and Marie Tate and their son Erik who has autism. We learn about the patience, understanding and love that it takes to raise a child with autism. They share their hopes and dreams that have been altered along with the humor and uncertainty everyday bring when living with someone with autism.

The show runs 50 minutes with no intermission. Filled with authentic storytelling, educational value and dramatic music, Puzzle Piece is for anyone who loves someone who has Autism, or anyone who loves great theater and has a heart.
