October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Actual Dance tells a story of MY journey in response to Susan’s diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer in 2000
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I post a blog each day with a reflection about breast cancer. The reflections all stem from something in the play.
Day 31: BECOME A PRODUCER: I have been so blessed to have had the chance to perform this The Actual Dance for three and one-half years.
The show contains a deep gift that speaks to people in ways that can change their own view of love and life. It inspires and heals, it enables people to see their own experience in an entirely different light. We now have two versions of the show. One told as an autobiographical story by a white, Jewish man. The other by an actor who is a black man who portrays a character who in the show is a Christian.
Our mission is that everyone who needs to see the show has an opportunity to do so. It takes resources however. We rely on foundation support, tickets sales and donor support. You can go to our web site and see a list of “producers” People who have donated $100 or more to bring the power of the Actual Dance to all those who need to see it.
Please consider adding your name by making a generous contribution today. You can also help by bringing The Actual Dance to a venue in your community. A church, synagogue, community theater, medical center, cancer support group etc. etc.
Stat of the Day: The Actual Dance has been produced 165 times for about 3200 audience members.
