Christmas Eve I was at a wonderful party at the beautiful and welcoming home of Grace and Guiseppe Numerosi chatting with Heidi Dallin when she was suddenly surrounded by a group of girls eager to talk with her. She greeted them all warmly, laughed and joked, and was so sweet with them. Grace corralled the girls and we managed to get a phone snapshot of the energetic troupe.

Heidi teaches the Youth Acting Workshop and all four girls were in Gloucester Stage’s annual hit production of “Holiday Delights.” She gives tirelessly of herself to all the kids in the Gloucester Stage and public school plays, makes everyone feel special and uniquely deserving of their roles, and has a real gift for getting the best out of her aspiring thespians. A heartfelt thanks to Heidi Dallin for all that she does for Gloucester youth!
