Review: And Justice for Some: The Freedom Trial of Anthony Burns [1858] at The Coterie

You never know what to expect at The Coterie. Few local theaters are as diverse in their productions. Sometimes they make us laugh, sometimes they make us cry, but nearly always they make us think - and that is especially true with their current production, And Justice for Some: The Freedom Trial of Anthony Burns [1858]. The show is set in 1858, just before the rise of the Republican Party and the Presidential candidacy of Abraham Lincoln.

Co-op Camp

Being Away from Home Builds Self-Esteem, Independence

One of the many joys of parenthood is helping children navigate new waters. And while these situations often are met with hesitation, slight anxiety—or in the case of some first-time campers, homesickness—it is these moments that develop the 21st-century skills needed in adulthood. New situations, such as going away to camp, serve as teachers in life’s classroom, developing leadership, self-esteem, teamwork, independence and problem-solving.

Dream Dinners

It is 5:30, and you are desperately rummaging through your fridge and cupboards trying to come up with something resembling dinner. The kids have to be at their next activity soon, and you finally give up and announce you’ll be hitting the drive-through again.

Cookies, Cakes and Candies! Oh My!
