What the Heck Is Bluetooth and Why Should I Care?

What talent are we looking for?

The process of a strong production begins way before the lights and first actor steps on stage: Read below if you are interested in being a part of the magic!

The old adage, there is no Theatre without the Box Office has never been more true. Theatre has to have administrator’s, marketing and promotional professionals and a committed Board of Directors to thrive first and foremost. All members are expected to participate in the ongoing promotions (No Exceptions) This article is directed towards the production and touring of those plays!

  1. Director – After a Producer i in place one of the most critical aspects of a play production is the director. He/She provides the essential vision and direction of the play. They are tasked with scheduling all rehearsals and making sure the actors know their lines, cues, exits and entrances.
  2. Stage Manager – is the person charged with running the production after opening night and should be as verse with the production as the director.
  3. Set Designer – Designs set and in most cases are involved in the construction and logistics.
  4. Costume Designer – Must work along with the director in determining the costumes of the character to match the period and writers intentions.
  5. Lights Designer – responsible for placement of lights to slow the actors to be seen and mood and style of the play to be felt.
  6. Sound Designer – responsible for sound relate to allowing the audience to hear and quality recording.
  7. Stage Hands – Responsible for the placement of set pieces and props between scenes, loading and unloading of set in venues.


Color me Black

So you went to college, got your degree, played by all the rules, but didn’t get the job! Qualified, but now what?


This story starts with a colleague applying for a position within a local school system for which, for all intense purpose seems to be qualified for the position, but a failed attempt, in a community that is more than 80% AA and a school that is over 90% AA. A position previously held by a White male and ECU graduate. Our colleague, a Black female and NC A&T graduate.

Support New Voices/New Vision hiring of an HBCU Alumni

You may ask, why is this important? This is the new face of discrimination that keeps us from having allies within the system that continually fails our children and our communities. It is not enough that this community is led by an all-Black city council and Mayor when the real day to day work needed with our children sees us excluded.

HBCU: Helping Black Millenials Get Hired

So how do we build experience and jobs that benefit the community and provides new and enrich learning experiences that most of our children can relate to. This morning my child had a field trip that he was excited about as it was at a local college. The production, “Annie”. While I am sure that the production and the play experience provided some entertainment, a story of an Orphan and a dog? Why has the college repeated this production year after year, except for the financial benefits of low cost in repetition.  Its time for the college like the local High School as well as the Arts Council to show some new blood and groom some new exciting talent. Instead of putting resources into the same pockets year after year. Why has there never been a POC as director of the Arts Council? Or instructor on the High School level? Theses are serious barriers that in 2018 are questionable.

Social Media shows it’s worth

This morning I found myself literally with tears of joy as I began to realize how fortunate we were, so very fortunate as it dawn on me the impact that social media had on saving and helping so many in their time of need. You may only use the social media Facebook via your smart phone to chat with old and new friends, sell items in online yards sales but you have only begun to harness the power of the internet and social media.

Our schools have already made it an integral part of educating our youth with new apps such as ClassDojo and Class messenger to keep parents up to date with their student homework and general information. iPads are replacing books, good or bad, you and your child will have to get on Board and financial expenses for WiFi will become mandatory!

Not only providing connections to fiends and family, here are some useful apps  tools

  1. InnoCaption  This app is great for those that have a hearing problem or if you like to keep a log of your business or legal conversation.

  2. GasBuddy On a budget or trying to save? Get the lowest prices on gas!

  3. Flashlight We all find ourselves in need of a little light at times. Great flashlight from your phone.

  4. ClassDojo Ok got a student in the house? You’ll need to monitor his/her daily behavior and progress

  5. LCPS The school is constantly sending out messages regarding closures and events!

  6. Class Messenger This is the ultimate in communications with your childs teacher. (A must, better than email)

  7. Waze Great navigating tool!

  8. Google Maps Another navigating tool (Standard) with Foogle!
