"To partner with the Outside Voices Theatre company has been an absolute pleasure. There is so much I could say about this diverse group of people with developmental disabilities. Across a broad spectrum of projects the company has taken our vision and given it a truly unique, genuine and powerful voice. The company is incredibly well organized and very professional. We worked with the company to bring to life scenarios around relationships, dating, and intimacy. We also work with them to produce a music video, sit down interviews, and most recently short scenes about good support and assumptions that people have about developmental disabilities. They are amazing!"

“I was thoroughly impressed with OVTC’s professionalism. Their talented actors studied and played their roles with acumen. They aptly converted abstract concepts into readily intelligible and evocative scenes that speak to various audiences. Simply superb!”

"Outside Voices is a powerfully crafted social space that truly amplifies the unique voices and perspectives of people living with the label of disability and the consequent systems of injustice that shut people down. This theater company creates multiple opportunities for people to tell their stories and speak about their fears, sorrows, anger and truth. These voices are woven into compelling narratives of challenge and triumph that widen possibilities for all. The actors are making their mark on the world via professional paid performances that bring their talents to light AND generate new sources of personal income and accomplishment. This is truly fine person centered, relationship and community building, collaborative work. We have much to learn by listening to Outside Voices, and by learning from the innovative methods and practices of these super fine artists of social change."
