A KIND SHOT
DCTV FIREHOUSE
87 Lafayette Street, NYC 10013

Thursday, July 19th at 6:30 PM

Free & Open to the Public



Terri Mateer, former basketball star and model, teams up with Downtown Community Television Center to bring her critically acclaimed one-woman show A KIND SHOT, to its theatre located at 
The DCTV Firehouse, a gothic landmark in Lower Manhattan built circa 1895. It will be filmed by the documentarians at DCTV's PRO-TV, which is a free media arts training program for NYC youth. PRO-TV provides positive, creative outlets for young people to address issues affecting their lives and their communities. Students pitch ideas, rotate production roles, and interact with local community members. As participants progress through the filmmaking process, they develop skills in team-building, leadership, and public speaking. Youth producers raise their voices
within their communities and create films that matter.

Performance is free & open to the public and will be recorded by their students. 

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.

 The play contains adult language. Talk-back after each performance.

“A Kind Shot”

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."
love,
Jennifer
