Family Tales


      The purpose of “Family Tales” is to preserve and honor the treasured tales that are the fabric of families. The Grumpy One and Grumpy Too Show focuses on awakening and celebrating memories. A memory must be shared to become a part of our family legacy. The legacy endures only as long as the family tales are told and the stories live on in the memories of the audience. The stories below have been collected by Grumpy One and Grumpy Too as they perform in Senior Care facilities and programs throughout northwestern Pennsylvania. Grumpy One and Grumpy Too see their elderly audiences as vast untapped libraries of wit, wisdom and experience. The "Family Tales" project aims to harvest, preserve, share  and honor these everyday life stories.
