Benefiting: Alzheimer’s Association
All of the proceeds which Laura receives from her the performance of her one woman show, “Punk Grandpa,” at Planet Connections, will be going to the New York Branch of the Alzheimer’s Association, as Laura’s grandpa passed away due to Alzheimer’s.

Written by: Laura Scruggs
Directed by: Emmi Hilger

“Punk Grandpa” is the story of how Laura did not fit into her family, church or other social groups and how her grandpa helped her find her identity and realize that it’s okay to be different. The show takes place over one magical weekend when she was 5 3/4 years old and exhibits her grandpa’s unique sense of humor and reckless, abandoned approach to life! The story is portrayed through storytelling, music, dance, family photos & film footage and a little bit of puppetry.
