A Parenting Story

Program Categories: * Educational Programs * Theater Programs * Authors and Illustrators
Audience:12-Adult
Description:

Bill Campbell's one-person performance laughs and cries about a Dad's life that he knows very well.

"A Parenting Story" is a one act, one-person 90-minute play that examines the joys and heartaches of raising children. Bill Campbell draws upon his 25 years as a professional stand-up comedian and father of three to present a hilarious, heart warming and compelling story. Within a simple living room setting, Bill's "Everyman" character uses the advent of this 25th Father's Day to take the audience on a remarkable tour from babies to grandparenting. You will laugh deeply and then wipe a tear from your eye as Bill performs this real-life emotional roller coaster ride that he simply calls his "parenting story." It will touch a nerve, some bone and certainly your heart as it explores how we always seem to end up raising each other.
