Maebori and Green then collaborated on the project.

It all started some 30 years ago when GFS teacher Teresa Maebori wanted her third- and fourth-grade students to make genuine connections with children different from themselves. She got the idea after an assembly in which some students labeled people with physical disabilities "retarded."

At the earliest rehearsals, it was as if something rather magical was happening, Maebori says. For some children who had limited speech, the musical was a chance to sing. Others found different ways to express themselves, perhaps by moving to the music or with facial expressions.
"In that first year, we were amazed at the transformation at both schools," says Maebori, who retired last year following the 30th production.
