THE STREET SMARTS OF ACTING and HENNESSEY PRODUCTIONS are proud to present the second annual “9 to 11 Minute Plays and Stories: Inspired by the Events of 9/11” on September 11, 2018 at Loft Ensemble Theatre.
This is a powerful evening of moving, dramatic, heartwarming pieces that will inspire people and perhaps at times put a smile on their faces when they remember someone they love that was lost on that day or affected profoundly by the events of September 11th, 2001.
The event was created and held in loving memory of Robert Regensburger Sr. 1/1/1942-7/24/2016 who passed from four different 9/11 related cancers. This September 16, 2018 his name will be added to THE HERO’S REMEMBERED WALL in Nesconset, NY. The wall is dedicated to all volunteers and personnel who ran into the building 17 years ago.
“Our 9-11 Minute Plays and Short Stories Fundraiser meant so much to me because it was our inaugural event in memory of my father. And to be able to not only remember that day which change the trajectory of all of our lives but to also learn more about it through the eyes and hearts of one another is a gift of healing I never expected to receive.” – Elizabeth Regensburger, Co-Producer, Playwright and Visionary.
“When I heard Elizabeth’s personal account of 9/11 in her short play “HAPPY SWEET 16” last August, which I was honored to perform in as well at a short story festival at Samuel French Bookstore in early August, I KNEW in my heart that there were other stories out there and shared my vision with Elizabeth because her remarkable story was the catalyst for the entire Event which we are excited is now being turned into a Documentary to help educate future generations of the outcome of this beyond tragic day. I am honored to be a part of this powerful Event and our dream is that others begin to join in all over the Country and share their voices, tell their stories and help heal the world.” -Miracle Mike Hennessey, Creator and Co-Producer
