Christmas play celebrates children of all abilities

During this time of year, there are all kinds of Christmas pageants and nativity plays where kids get a chance to go on stage and play the parts of Mary, Joseph, and the three wise men. But some kids with special needs and abilities don’t always get a chance to take part inthese activities.
One woman has been working to change that. She’s putting together a “Special Stars” performance of the Little Drummer Boy, calling it a chance to let “disabilities shine on stage” and celebrating each child’s unique talents.

Nitza Salzar, the founder of Special Stars, joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
