South Florida Theatre League to Present Play Reading Fundraiser THE DANA PLAYS, 7/14

On July 14th the South Florida Theatre League will present The Dana Plays, a play reading fundraiser inspired by Dana Castellano, a beloved member of the local theatrical community.

The event will take place at Miami Theatre Center at 8 pm. Castellano was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer in January 2014.

The evening, which has evolved as an adjunct to the League's Summer Theatre Fest Play Reading Festival, will raise funds for the American Cancer Society and for Castellano to help her defray the heavy costs of her treatments.

Dana Castellano has been a passionate supporter of and involved with South Florida theatre for over 10 years in both Broward and Palm Beach Counties. She has been an active member of the board of directors the Women's Theater Project and has dedicated her time and energy a number of theatrical projects. Her love of the theater allowed her to make amazing lifelong friends and share her commitment to the theater and the community.

Castellano is pleased, excited, and tremendously moved by the support she has received from the theatrical community, as well as from her friends and family since her diagnosis. Her plight has led to the formation of a support group, Team Chaos, whose mandate is to raise funds for, and awareness of her situation. They will actively support the event.

Among playwrights contributing to The Dana Plays are Andie Arthur, Christopher Demos-Brown, Jessica Farr, Tony Finstrom, Avi Hoffman, Michael McKeever, Juan C. Sanchez, Deborah Sherman, and Paul Tei.

Tickets for The Dana Plays are $15 each (with any extra donation welcome), and will be available at the door of the theatre the evening of the performance only.
