"Rita Parisi is such a wonderful storyteller. I attended her performance of All Hallows Eve Tea and was mesmerized...the story was cute, scary, funny, and I wish it didn't have to end. Rita's costumes are beautiful and her wit is endless. I can't wait to see more of her performances." -Joanne M. Audience Member

"I attended Waterfall Productions'/ Rita Parisi's "Gothic Tales" at the North Haven Library and was simply floored by Ms. Parisi's abilities to enter in and out of characters and to capture an audience. The production was held very close to Halloween and I have to say that even as an adult, it was a bit terrifying! Ms. Parisi is able to enter and exit characters so seamlessly that the characters she seeks to portray literally take life before you.  If you have the opportunity to see her, don't miss one of her solo productions!

Highlighted in this  presentation, will be stories, spanning from early 20th century to mid-century, from Rose MacCaulay, Agatha Christie and Virginia Layefsky.
