What’s a Parangello?
A 501c3 Non Profit Organization founded by Elyce Monet in 1986 in the State of Washington, Parangello Players has been dedicated to arts education and community theater with the express intention of improving peoples’ lives and promoting strong family values and self esteem in participants. Services were expanded into the State of California in 2000.
As a non-profit, all donations are tax deductible. All fees for services are on a donation basis and suggested donation amounts are listed on the Services Page.
When funding became limited in 1993 as a result of the Gulf War, the doors to the school were closed. Parangello Players then focused on private entertainment. In 2000, the nonprofit was expanded to California, and in 2007 the first mind-body-spirit seminar of its kind, “Keeping It Real: The Key to Health & Happiness”, was produced and performed before more than 1800 people in Thousand Oaks, California. Speakers included national radio talk show host Dennis Prager on Happiness, Mariel Hemingway on Spirituality and Life, and Robert Ferguson on Health & Fitness. It was touted as “Cirque du Soleil meets Dancing With the Stars”, and included a professional Cirque du Soleil performer, and the World Latin Dance Champions and their friends. It was a unique new way of presenting education about personal happiness, health and spirituality, and was greatly enjoyed by all in attendance. The event was sponsored by Gaiam, International and Sweet Leaf Stevia.
In 2009, Parangello Players launched the “Free To Be Me” Youth Program. We are currently seeking grants for this national program which is complete with celebrity endorsement and participation, trainers, coaches and social documentation. The program has proven, successful results.
