Linktastic – June 2016

Linktastic - June 2016

Fun times at the Oxford Renaissance Festival this past weekend!

What time is it? Summer time! (Yes, I threw an HSM2 reference in there.) I am loving the warmer weather and slower pace of the summer. I’m looking forward to having adventures with Shawn and my friends, seeing some great shows, travelling a bit, and relaxing! So without further ado, enjoy this month’s Linktastic!

Win Your Own Copy of The Broadway Coloring Book! [Giveaway Closed!]

Win Your Own Copy of The Broadway Coloring Book! [Giveaway!]

Hey everyone! How’s it going? I’m still feeling a bit of post-show blues from Tarzan being over (even though it’s been nearly a month… ughhhhhh), so what better way to distract myself than with a bit of colouring? I’m partnering with Monica from Curious Custom, who has generously offered two copies of her awesome Broadway Coloring Book to give away to two of my followers! (Note: Monica is from the U.S. and I’m from Canada, so I’m going back and forth with the spelling of colouring vs. coloring in this post — it’s really weird for me to type, ha ha!)

Monica’s colouring books are all hand-drawn and totally creative. The Broadway Coloring Book features scenes from famous Broadway musicals including CabaretChicagoThe Phantom of the Opera, The King & I, Kinky Boots, and West Side Story.

The Broadway Coloring Book is perfect for theatre lovers and colouring aficionados, and it makes a great gift! It’d also be great for summer drama camps and theatre classes, or for keeping young actors quiet during rehearsals when they’re on break! (Hmmm… maybe I should get a few for my Original Kids!)

Webinar Tomorrow! “Being the Director: Taking Charge of Your Life the Musical”

Webinar Tomorrow! "Being the Director: Taking Charge of Your Life the Musical"

I’m honoured to be joining Xandra of Heroine Training for my first-ever webinar! We’re going to be talking about all sorts of fun theatre topics and I’d love for you to join us.

Join us LIVE on Friday 3 June at 1PM BST (8am EST) for our webinar “Being the Director: Taking Charge of Your Life the Musical”

Click here to save your seat!

In this webinar, you’ll learn. . .

1. How to create and take pride in your work. How just showing up can change your life, why you should always be learning, and how  “getting off book” can seriously teach you time management skills.
2. The power of teamwork and how to nourish your community. We’ll talk about how to have gratitude for your amazing team, understand their needs, and form “show circles” to come together.
3. Taking care of your self while you throw yourself into your dreams. The director’s role is to oversee the entire production, while  taking care of herself in the process. How to follow the Shakespeare’s words: “to thine own self be true”.

And so much more we could go on for six hours. (But we won’t).

I hope you’ll join us on Friday!

See you then!
