Cast Portraits by Arielle Simmons Photography
HEART was invited by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs to perform at Piccolo Spoleto 2017. Marybeth Clark of Charleston Stage Company wrote, directed, and provided costumes for the 30-minute music and humor filled adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet called A Heartfelt Look at Romeo & Juliet. PURE Theatre and their Artistic Director, Sharon Graci hosted the performances and assisted Clark as mentor & director.
Both shows were sold out and had long waiting lists! We are so proud of our talented actors and our supportive community! After almost 3 years of creating visual and performance art at HEART, we see this event as a milestone for inclusion, recognition and respect for our talented artists and actors with special needs. We thank everyone involved in making this happen.
