Memories from the Fundraiser at Bellmore Movies – 9/19/22

View the Teaser

“I laughed, really laughed, so many times while watching episodes of ‘Couple of Guys,’ and came close to crying when they evoked memories of my younger brother who was a gifted singer and musician, and died of AIDS in his mid-30s.”

-Ann Parry, FromLongIsland.com

Debra Markowitz has put together an ensemble cast that will surround our Guys and live with them through all the ups and downs of their relationship. You will laugh, you might cry, and you’ll be part of the family throughout. Bringing characters to life is what Ms. Markowitz does best (the actors she casts win awards!), and you’ll enjoy watching the story unfold. What more noble cause is there in art than making your audience “feel?”
