Playwrights for Change

Give in honor of Tracey Conner

Tracey Conner was a writer, director, puppet builder, and performer. Her artistry and love for puppeteering led her to create MicheLee Puppets 38 years ago. Throughout MicheLee Puppet’s history, the nonprofit reached more than 2.3 million students.

Orlando Family Stage is creating a memorial space in our lobby to honor Tracey’s work and impact. To acknowledge those who donate in Tracey’s memory, we will visibly recognize gifts over $250.

With your support, this new initiative will stand as a testament to the power of lasting legacies, reminding us that the impact of creativity, education, and artistic innovation can transcend generations, leaving an indelible mark on our community and the lives of those we serve.

*On the donation form please check the box that indicates that your gift is in honor of Tracey Conner.
