The Local Artisan Collective Class Review

My brother is an artist – a pretty amazing one. In fact, he’s so talented that he makes his living with his art. Me? Well, let’s just say I’ve perfected the stick figure. Growing up with a brother that had loads of talent I always felt like I shouldn’t even bother trying – I would never be as good as him and honestly, I never much had the desire. I appreciate artistic ability and I’ve always been super jealous of anyone...

Indie Ogden Review: Annie at Ziegfeld Theater

  Ziegfeld Theater is what all theaters should strive to be like.  Warm, inviting and a cast and crew that doesn’t settle for anything less than perfection.  I took my daughters, Hunter (9) and Scout (4), to see Ziegfeld’s production of Annie.  The children in this production wowed from the opening number to the closing scene.  Each little orphan met her mark, made the crowd laugh and served up a performance worthy of...

Happiness at Ziegfeld Theater

The Ziegfeld Theater’s Production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown was delightful! As each character danced, sang, and bantered I couldn’t help but smile. I wore a stupid grin throughout the play as Sally, Schroeder, Linus, Snoopy, Lucy, and Charlie Brown played out their ridiculous antics. Children were delighted by the play as well as adults. A couple kids I talked to were huge fans of Lucy and Sally, played by Morgan Parry and...
