Disability Rights / Treehouse Acting Company In the first part of the show we meet a young woman who has lived on her own for the last decade despite the challenges of living with Cerebral Palsy and navigating the sometimes unfriendly sidewalks, city streets and buildings of Charlotte. We'll learn what city leaders are doing, and should do, to make Charlotte more handicap accessible. Then we're joined by a group of teenagers who formed their own theater company, The Treehouse Acting Company. They have written, composed and will soon perform their own musical called CyberSoul. From the determination of a group of young artists to the drive of a person seeking and independent life, it's a compelling hour of Charlotte Talks.
