LITCHFIELD, Conn. - Sept. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- This inspiring biographical portrait is based on the letters, life stories and poems of Emily Dickinson.  It combines performance with interactive audience workshop activities. In the course of the show, Ms. Grace reaches out to the audience for ideas, words and phrases, and with their input, new poems are created. The spirit of Emily Dickinson is celebrated not only with her story- filled with heart and humor- but with the immediate creativity taking place in the room!

Ginger Grace has worked extensively in New York and Regional Theater, playing lead roles in plays such as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Doubt, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. She has also toured nationally opposite Rich Little in The Presidents, playing all the First Ladies from Jackie Kennedy to Hillary Clinton. Since 2002 she has been performing The Belle of Amherst for audiences throughout the county. In addition to workshops and residencies that Ms. Grace creates and conducts in association with The Belle of Amherst, she has taught acting and playwriting workshops with New York inner-city school students in the CASA/ CenterStage program for six years. She is a great believer in the importance of freeing the creativity in each individual.
