dedicating this production to my father Corporal Bronislaw Paprzycki who was awarded a Purple Heart
after being wounded in the Korean War and lived his life as a disabled veteran. My hope is we all honor the
veterans in our own families with this production and show true appreciation for the many sacrifices they
have made. When I saw Sgt. D'Alessandro interviewed on NJTV News last year I reached out directly to ask
him to partner with South Camden Theatre Company for this important festival and am thrilled he will be
able to join us and let our audience help homeless veterans."
