On that magical July evening, L'Arche Metro Richmond friends and cast members from People International, Inc. (Pii) experienced "something beautiful that won't be forgotten." - Cait Lin (Pii)
For months, we were excited with anticipation, yet the show exceeded all expectations! L'Arche Metro Richmond is immensely grateful to People International for presenting The World is Ours to benefit persons with disabilities whom we serve. Here's what a few folks said:
"...practicing and performing with persons from our charity and learning more from them than they learn from us. It was a beautiful, moving, and wonderful experience." - Brian Vaughn (Pii)
"I wanted to tell you how much Bobby enjoyed the musical, especially getting up on stage and performing with everyone. He has been talking about it all day. Everyone I talked to said how wonderful the performance was. Thanks for bring it to Richmond." - Claudette Longest
"Outstanding! My family had the best time! I didn't know what to expect. Everyone was having a fantastic time. Thank you, thank you for all the hard work. Fabulous!" - Tammy Rogers
