To laugh is to live!

Just think ... A family theater performance that is enjoyed by ALL AGES.

To Laugh is to Live! is a hilarious family escapade. You are introduced to a whimsical, comic world where the audience happily becomes partners with Kenny's lovable eccentric character. Extraordinary artistry mingles with delightfully daring antics. The result is a dazzling, heartwarming performance ... that few can resist.

“What I enjoy most... is creating a whimsical world, where families laugh together and fun–filled memories are created.”

This family performance has been presented in theaters in United States and abroad to wonderful reviews.

The drop panel set is inspired by artist Vincent Van Gogh's, "Starry Night” and bananas. Yes, bananas. The lighting design and technical logistics are designed for a traditional proscenium stage; yet are flexible enough to play in non–traditional spaces and still retain a distinctive intimacy.

The creative team behind To Laugh is to Live! is comprised of National award winning Director Maurice Enders; Composer George Maurer; and Scenic Designer/Sculptor Michael Martino.

ALSO AVAILABLE: Youth (K-5) Show and Youth Residency & Workshops; The To Laugh is to Live! Art Gallery Exhibit, is a series of figurative sculptures and paintings, created around the performance by artist Michael Martino.
