Photo by Neil Kramer Photography From auditions to workshops to show day, we’ve had so much fun. Check out these photos from Neil Kramer – they really capture the essence of the evening.

Tonight’s a Great Night for Storytelling

By Every Family's Got One Founder -- Barbara Herel  Tonight, the 2019 cast of Every Family’s Got One takes the stage at My Father’s Place to tell their family stories.

I’m certainly not creating all this magical goodness by myself. It takes people like [...]

EFGO Writers Workshop: It was great!

By Every Family's Got One Founder -- Barbara Herel  Image from rawpixel.com Last Sunday, the cast of Every Family’s Got One came together for our first Writers Workshop. After introductions, hugs, and food (a big part of any workshop experience as far as I'm concerned), we settled into a table read. A table read if you didn’t know is just that – sitting around the table, paper in hand, reading our stories. Here are 3 things that made my heart soar: 1. Even in this most casual of settings, the stories came to life. There is an emotional [...]
