First Stage Holiday Check List!

Here are some fun ideas to get a jump on your holiday shopping AND support First Stage at the same time.  
These adorable WORM, SPIDER and FLY finger puppets are part of our annual FUNdraiser supporting new play development!  These great puppets from our upcoming production of DIARY OF A WORM, A SPIDER, AND A FLY make a great stocking stuffer – or pair them with a First Stage gift certificate for a great gift!  For a minimum donation of $25 you get the WORM, SPIDER and FLY finger puppets, the chance to write and submit your own play starring your puppets, and an exclusive invite to our “From the Page to the Stage” party on June 15, 2012 where select plays written by other adoptive parents will be performed!  Available online, click here.  (Be sure to put TRIO in the comment section!)

Since being in a First Stage show two seasons ago, I always check this blog, and I always love reading stories about each new production that's going on or watching videos of the cast interviews and rehearsals! ;) I'm not trying to complain, but it makes me sad when I check the blog and there haven't been any entries recently! I know you're busy, but please keep this blog going!! I luv First Stage and hearing about it.

Thanks ;) Luv u guys!
