New Village Arts presents a fully staged production of STELLALUNA, performed by teenagers and young adults with neurodiversity and perfect for all ages.
Based on the beloved children’s book Stellaluna by Carlsbad resident Janell Cannon, the play is adapted by Aleta Barthell and directed by Samantha Ginn.
Nearly escaping an attack from an owl, young Stellaluna must find their way in a world where they often feel upside down. This production has been created by a neurodiverse cast and crew, with dance and accompanying music performed by a live harpist.
STELLALUNA is produced as part of NVA’s Inclusive Education Programming, which creates an inclusive arts experience for all members of the community.
NVA has partnered with Kids Act to develop fully staged productions for teenagers and young adults with neurodiversity, and their neurotypical peers. Working with top-quality arts educators and designers, students rehearse and develop fully realized productions. Members of the cast and company for STELLALUNA range in age from 13 to mid- to late 20s. In addition to students on the autism spectrum, some have Down syndrome.
STELLALUNA is sponsored by a Comcast/NBC7/Telemundo Project Innovation Grant, The Foundation for Developmental Disabilities, The Nordson Corporation Foundation, and The Qualcomm Foundation, with additional support from The Flower Fields and The Home Depot.
