Change of scenery

Time is running out and everyone is harried, so how about planning something nice to do after the holidays?

 

I don’t know about you but I’ve got enough stuff! What I don’t have enough of is time with the peo­ple that I care about, espe­cial­ly in this har­ried time of year. So how about instead of putting more stuff under the tree, plan a spe­cial out­ing to spend time togeth­er after the hol­i­day cheer and the snow melts away.

How about advance tickets to the theater?

I love to have a relax­ing night on my cal­en­dar well in advance, and the­aters love to know that their seats will be filled. Whether a region­al the­ater like the Kansas City Rep, a children’s the­ater like the Coterie, an inde­pen­dent grass-roots the­ater like the Liv­ing Room, the avant-garde of the Fringe Fes­ti­val, a small black box like the Fish­tank, or our friends in Fort Worth at Amphib­ian Stage Pro­duc­tions, why not check out their upcom­ing shows and put the­ater tick­ets under the tree?

Besides, a trip to the the­ater is not only a great evening out, but also a way to sup­port lots of cre­ative peo­ple in your com­mu­ni­ty. In addi­tion to the tal­ent­ed faces you see on the stage there are so many more tal­ent­ed peo­ple mak­ing the shows pos­si­ble. By sup­port­ing the work they do in the the­ater, you are mak­ing their inde­pen­dent projects pos­si­ble as well — like cos­tume design­er Ali­son Heryer’s Pic­nic Project.
