FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The University of Saint Francis Jesters presented their annual spring show Sunday afternoon.
The Jesters' 2013 show, "And Then," featured original poetry, instrumental and voice music, puppets, dance, and the art of Claude Monet. The performance told a story of transformation as told through the voice of gardeners who witness the life cycle of a butterfly and the seasonal changes of the flower garden they are tending.
The Jesters is a performing arts group made up of 50 teens and adults with special needs. The program was founded at the university in 1978 with the purpose of engaging people with disabilities in recreational activities and social interaction.
Each year, the Jesters members learn dance, music, theater, and visual art during the 20 week program. After the weekly practices, the Jesters put on the final show for an audience.
The show was held in the university's North Campus Auditorium at 3 p.m. Tickets were sold for $10.
