A heartfelt story of how a script, a stage, and a theater program composed of adults with disabilities celebrate their creativity, explore life’s complexities, and empower a community, in their own words and their own way—

INTO THE SPOTLIGHT is a documentary feature film that follows a Dallas-based theatre troupe, composed of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who are determined to write, rehearse, and perform their 11th annual original musical during the 2021-22 season.

A lot of the time documentaries that focus on disabled communities tend to be the experts explaining how these people feel, however in this doc, the film is crafted entirely from the point of view of the individuals giving them a voice.
