By Every Family’s Got One Founder — Barbara Herel
We are filled with gratitude!
From casting to opening night, and everything in-between, Kathy and I couldn’t have dreamed up a better storytelling evening for all. And believe us, we were dreaming BIG.
Was splendid in every way possible. Right from the very first rehearsal, which actually felt more like a well-honed writer’s workshop, you could feel the bond between castmates. (Our brains are still going through the glorious details of each performance, and our hearts… well, our hearts haven’t stopped overflowing with gratitude for this talented collection of people.)
Our Charitable Partner…
It was an honor working with the Visiting Nurse Service & Hospice of Suffolk County. Kudos to all those who filled the seats in spite of heavy rains and slick roads! Because of you, dear audience, we were able to donate $500 to VNSHS.
Oh, Every Family’s Got One Sponsors! Your backing helped bring forth this production, enabling us to raise funds for such a great community cause. (Yay you!)
Ellen Rassiger, owner of Happy Dog Training & Behavior
And a special thank you to Shamina Rao and Dawn Nagle for their dazzling artistic talents.
Our (Tireless) Volunteers…
Where would we be without your enthusiasm and endless support? Probably curled up somewhere in a dark corner eating candy. You kept us energized and going right from the start. We love you to pieces!
Andrea Brovetto, Maria Dayton, Joseph Radigan, Tom Radigan,
Dawn Nagle, Tony Mennuto, Betty Herel, and… Anastacia Mennuto!
Our Production Team…
Capturing those tiny and major Family moments on stage would not have happened if it weren’t for the creative gifts of Beth Thomas of ebeth photography and Michael Chow of Michael Chow Media. Thank you both for giving us the opportunity to relive and share all the excitement of the evening!
(Psst! Be on the lookout for Every Family’s Got One show photos and we’ll be rolling out each storyteller’s video very soon on the Every Family’s Got One YouTube channel.)
Also, a word of thanks to Ryan Perry and everyone at the Cinema Arts Centre.
Which now brings us back to –
You, Our Audience…
Thank you for being here. (Smooching you right now.) Kathy and I meant it when we said: “Each one of us has a family story.”
Consider this your open invitation to be part of Every Family’s Got One. Maybe by auditioning, or contributing online, or just by being here.
So, raise a glass, Family…
Happy Thanksgiving! And here’s to sharing more family stories!
Simply because these are the stories worth the telling.
