Gold medal winning athlete, Jason Hooper was born with Aperts Syndrome, which affects his hands and feet, but he doesn’t let that stop him living his life to the fullest and achieving his goals. At 23, Jason saw a sporting show about a disabled athlete, and that was it! It inspired him to join his local track team, and the rest was history.
"It's an exciting time for disabled and d/Deaf actors," Carly Findlay said.
"[People with disability] are seen so much more in art, TV and the written word. If a young person sees a person with disability in a play, they can think 'wow, there's hope for me. I can do that too'."
