Meet the Nuns!

Nuns and Guns what more can you ask for? Sister Act: The Musical is coming to Community Theater Greensboro on October,28th, 2016! Join the wonderful cast of this community theater production as we journey through a tale of a woman named Deloris's struggles. With numbers like "Raise Your Voice" and "Take Me to Heaven" you are sure to be tapping your feet to this wonderful music!

Stage manager Sarah Jean "Sparkie" Sparks comments:

"CTG is using the same set for the entire season. It presents interesting challenges. I feel very fortunate to be working with a production team who has been so energetic about melding all of the elements of the show seamlessly together."- Sarah Jean "Sparkie" Sparks.

I am myself apart of this cast and I feel very fortunate to have been able to work with these amazing young woman. Alan Menken is such a brilliant composer , and I just love singing his music! I love being apart of the cast because we have this sister like bound between us. We do absolutely everything together and see each other every night of the week. The rehearsal space is just great because we get to be in the theater while the guys might be in the studio learning music so its kind of like theater boot camp every week! Elizabeth Roberts (Mary Lazarus) comments about what its like to work with the other nuns:

"Working with the girls in Sister Act is more than just working on a play. The relationships that weve built are richer and fuller then I ever imagined." - Elizabeth Roberts

We have different age groups from young teenager to middle aged in this cast and its such a great thing to see such diversity in age among us all. Our youngest members are teenagers in high school and they are the characters of Mary Robert (Jael Arriaga), and Eddie (Torren Melton). Jael comments on what its like to be among such talented older people:

"Working with older people is really nerve wracking because everyone's so professional but its still very fun!" - Jael Arriaga

Not only do we have some high school students in this production, but we also have 3 college students from my own alma matter UNCG! Students include Danielle Storm (Mary Theresa), Gillian Gurganus (Sister Mary Patrick), and Alex Amaya (Pablo). Spartan Gillian Gurganus comments:

"Working with amazing directors, designers, cast mates, and crew has just been delightful. Working with Alan Menken and Glenn Slater's score has been a blessing- no (nun) pun intended!"- Gillian Gurganus

Having such diversity in age in the cast I think really sets us apart from other productions you will see this fall season! We really love playing our characters and have loved every ounce of doing the research for them. The role of Deloris will be played by Jasmine Evans. Jasmine Evans gave the following comment about her role:

"My favorite part about being Deloris is that she's the opposite of me, rough around the edges and she says everything she thinks. But we both love making music and that girl can blow!! I'm going to enjoy singing my heart out." - Jasmine Evans

So my dear readers, if there is one production you see this year LET THIS BE IT! For more information on the show please visit CTG's website below.

*Performance dates: October 28- November 13, 7:30pm Wednesdays-Saturdays and 2:00pm Sundays

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

Last night on "The Bachelorette," Yosef (aka the guy who was accused of sliding into women's DMs before the show began filming) continued his streak of red flags by calling Clare "crazy."

To give you a little more context, this red flag happened after Clare got very upset with the guys on her group date for not making an effort to speak to her one-on-one when the opportunity arose and an awkward silence ensued. Because of this, she was clearly embarrassed and ended up having to ask them to ask her to go for a walk, which was... painful to watch (and probably to live out).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Air Fryers To Gift THAT Person In Your Life Who Always Cooks For You

I use mine more than my oven, toaster, and microwave combined.


It took me a long time to understand what the point of an air fryer really was. Couldn't I just bake something and get the same consistency?

My opinions took a total 180 when several years ago my mom made some delicious, homemade crispy fries. I was shocked when she told me she made them in her air fryer. Without a single drop of oil, they felt crispy and indulgent, unlike anything I have been able to achieve in an oven.

As a teenage girl, I can safely say that a pregnancy scare is horrifying. I'm not one to say that becoming a young parent is bad, but for many, it is not the ideal situation to be in. Going through a pregnancy scare leads to a lot of unwanted worries until that period comes, or a test reads "positive."

Being an inexperienced tumbler, I have had my fair share of mental blocks. There have been weeks where I can't even do a back walkover properly — I tense up and freeze. I thought that saying that my mental block wasn't real would make it go away, but it didn't. The reason? I didn't believe it. I just said it and hoped for the best, all while knowing that I wasn't going to do whatever skill I was struggling with. It frustrated me and made me so insecure about the progress I was making even when I was told that I was doing well. All I saw were the mistakes and times I didn't try at all.
