2019 has already been exciting with The Vagina Monologues directed by Melisa Otero at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford in February. This was followed by an appearance at Hot Chocolate Soul's sold out opening night at The Bushnell Theater. We had a spectacular opening weekend for Dreamgirls, a MaPeach Production, directed by Darlene Brandon, that took place at The Artists Collective in Hartford, CT. It was SUCH an amazing presentation that we are set for an encore performance August 17th & 18th!!! #CatchThisMagic
Mother's Day weekend was followed by a fantastic Inaugural Hartford Book Festival at the Hartford Public Library on May 18th! This was presented by an organization I am a founding member of called Hartford's Literary Integraded Trailblazers! We worked for a year and some change on this event and it was worth all the sweat equity! I have posted a couple of pictures. There are more on the Hartford's L.I.T. Facebook page as well as the Hartford Public Library page as they were our partner.
I enjoy collaborating and working with others. #ProjectResiliency lead by Founder and CEO Althea Webber Bates, created a campaign for #StrongWomen. She hosted a wonderful event that allowed me to pen a piece about strong women and share on May 31st.
