“York CI Staff & inmates would like to thank you for bringing & introducing Dandelion Productions to our facility for the FIRST TIME! How exciting it was to see the facial expressions & the willingness to enjoy the workshops! Everyone participated, everyone was excited & it was an overall successful production. I hope that you guys are willing to come back and present more productions to our population. It was what York CI needs!”

Dandelion Productions' new program BRIDGE launched in April, with a small troupe of actors visiting local venues, bringing the gift of live theater right into the community.  With an audience reach of approximately 200 people, our BRIDGE program has already made a significant impact in the arts & culture available to the Bridgeport, Fairfield, and surrounding areas.  Sites included Harding High School (Bridgeport), the York Women's Prison, the Jewish Home for the Elderly, and 2 supportive housing communities.
