Okay, our first charitable production was a success! How did we do?
1. We exceeded our goal for fundraising for Life With Cancer.
2. We had more people attend than we originally projected.
3. The production of The Actual Dance
got an even more positive response than we thought it would.
What people said about our February productions:
"I went home and cried. Don't worry, that's good! I got it all out. This was the first time since my diagnosis that I have realized what my family is going through as well as my own feelings. Thanks to you all!"
"We were almost overwhelmed with the insight and self-discovery. What a powerful, important message."
"Amazing what Sam Simon did with a blank stage and a stool. Well written, well acted. It was as if anything more would have detracted from the experience."
"You packed so much in a short time. So tightly written. Not a wasted word."
"What a wonderful evening. I was thinking it would be depressing. No, it is a love story and it has a happy ending."
"A lot of emotions and a positive message."
"This was more than a fund raising project. This was a community service. Thanks ... for presenting this."
"'Powerful' is the best word to discribe "The Actual Dance.'"
"Wow! Sam Simon is quite an actor and Susan Simon is my hero."
"It sounded morbid when I first heard about it. But it worked. I saw the tears in peoples' eyes. I saw their smiles. It really worked."
"I learned so much about what my mother and father and all of us will experience."
"So powerful, poignant, so glad we came. Lived here over 25 years, our first time at this theater."
"I feel better prepared. There could not be a better way to help people understand."
"The whole presentation and the community wide effort makes me so proud of Falls Church. People reaching out to help. Well done."
"Please do this again. I will help."
