ArtStream’s Spring Cabaret Showcases the Talent and Perseverance of an Impressive Group of Performers
She has been performing since she was a little girl, but occasionally Ana Bradley gets stage fright.
“Sometimes I get nervous,” admitted the 29-year-old triple threat, a singer-dancer-actress who will perform in ArtStream’s Spring Cabaret. “But I just breathe: in through my nose and out my mouth — and everything’s gonna be okay.”
Bradley, who has Down syndrome, will be performing in a musical revue on Monday, June 4 at AMP Powered by Strathmore in North Bethesda. A member of ArtStream’s Cabaret Company, she will be joined by a 12-member cast that features actors with intellectual and developmental disabilities assisted by volunteer mentors and theater professionals. Working together, they’ll create an evening of original performances featuring songs, dances and dramatic performances.
