In A KIND SHOT, 6’1” blonde spitfire Terri Mateer tells her life story of becoming a pro basketball player in France. Raised by a single, hippie mom, an African American surrogate father steps in and teaches Terri how to play the game. Clearing six feet in sixth grade, she’s a natural, but dreams of becoming an architect. Terri's unbelievable journey includes playing pro ball, modeling, stripping, designing
Michael Jordan’s headboard, and taking lots of shots at life.

“A Kind Shot”
A Slam Dunk in Parker Theatre
The New Paltz Oracle by Jake Maurilleo (April 2018)

This show was performed on April 7th, 2018 and sponsored by the following departments at SUNY New Paltz:
Department of Theatre Arts,
Department of Athletics, Wellness & Recreation
Office of Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion

There were over 100 students and faculty, mostly seated in the center rows...these guys were a bit late, so they sat in the wings and after the show one of them had this to say.

Below is an email from someone who had seen the show this past winter.

"Hi Terri, I’m so glad you emailed as I’ve been toting around your postcard for months now as a reminder to reach out to you. I saw one of your shows at the Barrow Theatre earlier this year and i talked to you briefly afterwards. I absolutely loved your show. I came to see you because I wanted to see if a woman could hold a room for over an hour just telling stories. And you did. You were captivating. I’m working on a solo show right now and yours was an inspiration because like you I’m not doing any characters, just myself. So from an artistic perspective I appreciated so much what you did. And from a heart level I equally loved it. I find myself thinking about it a lot: speaking out for other people, watching each others’ backs, being kind. I am excited to see how the show is moving and growing. You and your message deserve all the love and attention you can get because quite simply, you make the world a better place. Thank you for sharing your story."

"A perfect combination of brilliant acting, detailed physicality, hard-hitting text and uplifting personal triumphs."
Jacquelyn Claire-Stage Biz

"It's truly a fresh, brave and daring take on the one-woman show."
Juliana Adame-Broadway World

"Cassius Clay, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King and many others have performedon our stage and now you have graced it with your show and presence. Thank you."
Francis L. Hendricks-President Mansfield University
