Actor Rita Parisi of Waterfall Productions

January 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us on  our YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/CustomHouseMuseum) at 6:30pm on Friday, January 8, 2021 as we welcome Rita Parisi, founder of Waterfall Productions to the Custom House’s monthly Virtual First Friday event.

Rita Parisi founded her production company, Waterfall Productions, in order to create original theatrical presentations for the purpose of entertaining and inspiring her audiences through her passion for performative storytelling, costuming, literature, and history. Her one-woman shows present characters from the eighteenth through twentieth centuries in a variety of historical contexts.

Rita will be on-hand to talk about what inspired her to create her production company, and its one-woman shows. She will discuss how she chooses her subjects; how she researches, writes, and performs the pieces, and even designs the props, staging, and costumes for the productions!

After the presentation, there will be an informal Q & A, in which Rita will interact with the audience and answer their questions.  You can find out more about Rita and her work at: www.waterfallproductions.com
