About the show

Through puppets and soaring music, this heartfelt and comic musical for families explores disability, kindness, and resilience. More…

As Uno, a child with autism, faces the challenge of competing in his school's math competition, his friends with varying disabilities—ADHD, vision, hearing, and physical impairment—rally in support. Told with 'Avenue Q'-style puppets and heartfelt songs, it's an inspiring journey about the values of kindness, differences, and big dreams. Individuals with disabilities are so unseen and unheard across media, especially children's media. 'Addy & Uno' is giving a voice to kids who are different, and inspiring a new generation of kinder people. Based on the Realabilities Educational Comic Book Curriculum.

Delightful, Sweet, Moving

See it if You have young children. It's about kids with disabilities, about being kind and accepting others who may be different. Great songs, actors.

Don't see it if you don't have a heart. Or if you have a tween who thinks she is too mature for the sweet story. I guess it's more appropriate for age 3-10.
