Twenty years ago, we met Martadella, in H’art’s first theatre production entitled “Martadella’s Gift”, a young girl who communicated in a special way using a magical bubble wand.  Martadella challenged and inspired others to look beyond appearances and search for the beauty and unique gifts of those who appear different.

In H’art’s new musical, we meet Sam and Marta, a couple who had been inspired by Martadella’s Gift years ago as high school students after starring in the production.  Ironically, they have a daughter, Stella, who, like Martadella, cannot speak.   Sam and Marta have spent 20 years working hard to create a safe and comfortable life for their daughter.  Marta feels that she understands and knows what’s best for Stella. But can Stella be satisfied with comfortable when she has so much more to give?

Join over 40 remarkable local performers, most with developmental disabilities, for this spirited celebratory performance showcasing their talents as actors, musicians and visual artists.

A Gift from Martadella is a story about a young woman who embarks on a journey of new personal discoveries drawing inspiration from that same magical bubble wand from years ago.
