About this show

The Actual Dance, staring playwright and performer Samuel A. Simon, returns to Marc A. Scorca Hall as part of its Fifth Year Anniversary Tour. This award-winning play about love's ultimate journey has toured America moving audiences to laugh, cry, and then cheer! This performance also features musicians Mike Rosengarten on guitar and Elmo Zapp on cello.

A love story with a happy ending, The Actual Dance is told through the eyes and heart of a husband as he struggles with his worst fears in what everyone expects to be his wife's losing battle to breast cancer.

In the hour-long performance, and with original music, the story takes the audience on an emotional and uplifting journey that rewards them with an unexpected happy ending and a universal, life-affirming lesson of hope and faith. The performance is followed by a discussion led by Rev. Gregory Johnson, a national expert on care for the family caregiver.
