Dramatic Readings

Gregory has professional experience in working with the elderly by providing dramatic reading entertainment. (This means that he reads with dramatic flair, often using different voices for the various characters in a story...although he may use one slightly dramatic voice when reading to seniors with dementia, who require a more soothing tone.) He generally reads traditional classics for seniors living in assisted living houses, while he generally reads short stories for seniors living in memory loss housing. 
Gregory provides the first reading at a location for free (as a trial reading).  These readings work best when the facility makes a real effort to put as many people in the room as possible.  Subsequent readings cost $30.00.  All readings last roughly half-an-hour and recur weekly, although scheduling can be adapted for some unique circumstances.
