Your heartfelt comments and praises touched all of us, especially the student actors. PCC Theatre Arts A PIECE OF MY HEART
Many of you stayed after each performance to share your own stories with the cast and director. Some of you talked with us before the the show and several of you wrote wonderful notes. And, some very generous patrons put together enough funds to award four of the students with a $500 scholarship. You all left a "piece of your heart" with us. Thank you!
