Tallahassee's Pyramid Players may never make it to Broadway. But the fact that they've made it on stage deserves a curtain call all in its own.
And to perform, they need the support of some very special people. And tonight, we honor a woman that is an integral part to the success of the Pyramid players.
After six months of hard work, the Pyramid Players are ready to perform. And leading the way is Christa Saunders. The Florida State grad is the production director for the Pyramid Family, a family that she holds near and dear to her heart.
"To see everything come together is amazing because the performers not only have their energy but there's the energy of the lights and the stage and the sets. The costumes come together, it's an amazing experience."
What's really amazing is how it all comes together. The Pyramid program does amazing things for men and women living with disabilities. And twice a year, the group comes together to put on a performance. And it's never anything short of amazing.
"They make the normal seem entertaining and fun."
And that's what Pyramid is all about. Helping a young person through the trials and tribulations of life and having a little fun while doing it. And when it comes to putting on a star studded performance, there's not a bigger star than Christa Saunders.
"I'd never worked with anyone with a disability. Before I came to Pyramid it was all new and I found some amazing people that really have a lot of talent in everyday life."
