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 free of charge.  Subsequent readings cost $30.00.  All readings last roughly half an hour and recur weekly, although scheduling can be adapted for some unique circumstances.
Below is a list of his current and previous clients, along with a list of the books that he's read from.
