I just want to re-iterate that this is a FREE conference, so if you have a friend or family member with a disability, have a disability yourself, or are just interested in this subject, you should definitely sign up and check this out.
The Big Bad Wolf will be there, you know, cruising for chicks and stuff.
For my readers outside of the Rocky Mountain region, here's a snippet from a PBS NewsHour story about a PHAMALy production of The Wiz back in 2006.
The NewsHour report and the full streaming video are here.
