Review: A Year with Frog & Toad

Review: A Year with Frog & Toad

The Coterie took this newer Broadway Musical and made it their own. With Seth Jones playing Frog, Steven Eubank as Toad, and a talented supporting cast of neighboring animals, the show takes children on an imaginative world of very small animals. With mushrooms for houses and leaves for beds, the sets are creative and vibrant.

Building Baby’s Library

Building Baby’s Library

Educators tell us that every child needs to hear 500 books read aloud before entering kindergarten. Hearing all those stories prepares boys and girls for learning to read. They’ll pick up important “book knowledge,” such as concepts of words and sentences, left to right orientation, top and bottom, the beginning, middle and end of a book and much more.

The Wonder Within

The Wonder Within

For Kansas City native Carey Wickersham, writing her new book, The Wonder Within You, has been a labor of love. Quite literally. As a journalist and weekend morning reporter for Fox 4, she’s accustomed to researching and unearthing a good story—it’s a part of the job. However, those professional skills found themselves intersecting with personal life when tragedy struck.
Review: We Will Rock You at Starlight

Review: We Will Rock You at Starlight

The storyline takes place in the future, when rock and roll is just a distant memory. The world has become a sterile place where everyone thinks, acts and dresses the same.

As I mentioned, we miss the 2nd act, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say they prevail.
