Author, Lee Gale Gruen ("Lee Gale" is her first name), had a 37-year career as a Probation Officer. After retiring at age 60, just for fun she started attending an acting class for seniors. A few weeks later her mother died, and she invited her grieving father, age 85, to come to the class with her. This is the true story of their magical journey attending that class for 3 years. Lee Gale wrote the comedy scenes they performed twice a year onstage in the class showcases. The father/daughter team became a popular item with their adoring audience. Included in the book are all 6 scenes along with her motivation and the process of writing them, rehearsing them and gathering the props.
Lee Gale eventually transitioned into the world of professional acting. As her fledgling, second career started going uphill, her dad's health started going downhill. Lee Gale would recount to him each of her new experiences while she sat beside his bed at the nursing home where he resided in his final years.
This heartwarming, poignant story of the love and bonding that grew between a father and daughter, both in their later life, as they attended a senior acting class together, will resonate with Baby Boomers, seniors and their family members, friends and acquaintances everywhere.
