Welcome to Tony Ventrella Productions. After a brief journey into the world of politics I’m happy to say we’re back doing the things we really love to and we’re happy to have you visit.

My mom used to have an old saying she shared with us every morning before school and in later years as adults. “Let your light shine,” she would say.  “Always bring out the best in people with your attitude and your smile.” That’s been my approach to life and I hope to share it with as many people as I can.
