Wilson Loria's Latest: The Habit

Catherine Hickman Theatre in Gulfport, St. Petersburg at 3 PM. See address below please.

As usual, I'd love to see you in the audience. Tickets are available by calling at 727-656-8053. I will gladly send you tickets (in advance, seniors and students at $13 each) by mail. The price is $15 at the door. Let me know if you want them by mail ASAP. Drop me a line or call.

In a daring look at a religious woman facing the crossroads of her life, The Habit guides its audience from the familiar images of docile convent life to a path sprinkled with hints of a more profane one. Meeting a charming young man—more of the scoundrel type—at the hospital where she works as a nurse, she keeps hearing him telling his enchanting and magical stories. Suddenly, in a do-or-die move, she accepts his offer of eloping with him. However, as the play moves on, the audience is not really quite sure if HE is a figment of her imagination, or if SHE is a figment of his. Through music, dance, mime—following Loria’s idea of what theater should be—The Habit portrays, most importantly, a human being’s moment of truth, as everyone in the audience may have experienced at least once in their own lives.

Here's the link to the description of the show:

See you at the theater.
Thank YOU!!!

Apply to 10 CAFF Festivals with one Application for 2010

I saw this on the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals site - you can get in the lottery for several festivals and have guaranteed tour dates in September if you apply through CAFF's Touring Lottery.

This post was actually written as a draft back in February, but it seemed silly to blog about the 2010 festival circuit before the 2009 festival had started.

While there is tremendous satisfaction in spending time per

Hoop de Doo at Fringe

Lacy from the Orlando Community Hooping Initiative (CHI) tells us about her plans for a Hula-Hooping meetup at Blue Jacket Park in Baldwin Park every Thursday from 6-8PM.

According to the flyer, poi spinners, jugglers, drummers, musicians, circus artists and other skill toy technicians are welcome.

The Game Has Officialy Started!

About 30 game cards are now floating around the festival... I know that's a very small number, considering there are tens of thousands of people that will shuttle through Loch Haven Park in the next 2 weeks, but it's a start.

Sharing Photos
Theresa, Kids' Fringe Producer, brought up a good point - if it says "photo", or if I choose to use a photo as my proof, what do I do with it?

I say just post it wherever you normally do. If you use Flickr, that's my #1 recommendation. MySpace and Facebook are fine too. Some of you may have Picasa, Photobucket, Twitpic or other photo-sharing sites.

Wherever you put your photos, if you DON'T want them re-posted here, please say so.

The Whuffie Factor (AKA the Game) Orlando Fringe

This year at the Fringe, Blogging Fringe has created a game we hope you're really going to love. The object is to earn Whuffie, which is the most valuable currency known to man.


What's a Whuffie?

Whuffie are virtual points which represent respect, a "Reputation Currency". You earn whuffie as people credit you out of respect, gratitude, pity, lust, love, or any other motive for popularity.

"Whuffie recaptured the true essence of money: in the old days, if you were broke but respected, you wouldn't starve; contrariwise, if you were rich and hated, no sum could buy you security and peace. By measuring the thing that money really represented — your personal capital with your friends and neighbors — you more accurately gauged your success".
