A WELCOME MESSAGE
Welcome to Creating Ripples and Making Waves!
The stories you will experience
here are based on characters or events which somehow
effect great change—either
within the characters themselves and the community/town, as in
the story of “Stone Soup” (“Creating Ripples”)—or
possibly an entire society or generation, such as the events of 9/11
It is our sincerest hope
that you will not only enjoy the time you spend with us here,
See the navigation bar at top of all pages!
As you navigate your way through “Making Ripples and Creating Waves” we would like to encourage you to meet the participating storytellers by reading the Storyteller Biographies on the “concert page”, which will give you a glimpse into the lives of these individuals, where they have come from, and where they hope to go.
This concert was designed to provide enjoyment, provoke introspection, and most of all to give inspiration to each of you to Create your own Ripples and Make your own Waves!
A Story Abstract link has been provided to acquaint you with each story’s source material, classification, its rating (G, PG etc.) as well as a brief summary of the storyline so you have an idea of what to expect—and maybe whet your appetite!
Finally, we want to gratefully acknowledge our Director and inspiration, Dr. Elizabeth Figa, who was assisted in this endeavor by the tireless efforts of Pok Chin (Video Production), Bradley Debrick (Performance Coach) and Kim Moore (Teaching Assistant).
Our thanks would not be complete without expressing our gratitude to the talented and able storytellers you will meet in this concert. Your cast of characters includes:
