  1. As a parent of a special needs child I want to personally thank the Georgetown Palace for opening it's arms and it's theatre to include our very unique children and adults. Leaving nothing to chance every detail is carefully thought out and no one is left behind. I hope this starts a movement of more inclusion events and I challenge the Arts community to repeat what the Palace is doing so our children can experience the world outside their door.
