Summer Link Wrap Up

It’s hard to believe that summer is wrapping up when it’s 100+ degrees here in St. Louis, but it’s true. After Labor Day, our education department hits the ground running with in-school residencies! In my spare time this summer (ha!) I’ve been bookmarking away, saving links that I hope you will find fun and interesting reads on this three-day weekend. Enjoy!

I’ll leave you with this wonderful quote from the manifesto of PinPuppets, a New York-based theater company co-founded by Susannah Berard Dalton:

“Theater is not dead; it is the definition of alive. In these days when you can’t even get a real person on the phone to place a complaint with the electric company, what a luxury to have living breathing humans in front of you, fervently believing in a lie in the hopes that you will believe too. Theater is a human necessity. Theater reminds us that we are all alive and that we are all here together. We believe that theater is a delicious treat, a taste of life—which, if you use the proper ingredients, tastes bittersweet, like the kind of chocolate that’s actually good for you.”
