This project and story go back ..., 27 Aug 2014 [cached]
This project and story go back to 1982, when Teresa Maebori, a teacher at Germantown Friends, was disturbed by a student's reference to someone as a "retard. She wanted her students to move past this kind of labeling and respect one another.
To that end, she took a group of them to HMS, hoping they would interact with the challenged children there.
Maebori and Green then collaborated on the project.

Teresa Maebori, M.A.T. Teacher, Germantown Friends
It all started some 30 years ..., 1 Sept 2013 [cached]
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.â€
“I’m Japanese American, so I knew what it was like to be a minority,†she says. “It was at a time when my father, who had had a stroke, was in a wheelchair, and I realized what handicapped people experienced.â€
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. “In terms of my kids, it was the opportunity to show what is really human about each other, despite differences.
