The Jesters performing group is itself a unique story in Fort Wayne's theater community.

Formed more than thirty years ago and sponsored by the University of Saint Francis, the Jesters is comprised of people with mild to severe disabilities with a wide variety of generations represented, with the goal of enhancing each member's quality of life.

Each spring, the group presents an original, multi-media performance.

With their latest show premiering this weekend, WBOI's Julia Meek invited Jesters Director Allison Ballard to the Madge Rothschild Studios to discuss the troup, their mission, and this year's performance.

Listen to Julia Meek's interview with Jesters Director Allison Ballard.
