An award-winning play, The Actual Dance is a beautiful love story--a graceful and inspiring journey through the uncharted waters of illness, where the resilience and power of the human heart ultimately perseveres.
When first noticing his wife at the age of sixteen, Sam could not predict the profound connection they would share—they are two halves of the same whole. In their 33rd year of marriage, that love was tested…and the ringing in Sam’s ear was not as one would expect, in fact it was an orchestra, playing the music of his life--The Actual Dance.
The show will feature live music composed and arranged by Music Director Eli Zoller, whose experience as a Music Director and professional musician extends from Broadway to regional theaters and universities across the country. The original music is arranged for guitar and cello.
