If you love Peter Pan, then you should absolutely jump into the imaginative world of "Peter and the Starcatcher" this fall at Community Players Theatre in Bloomington. This September, I get an incredible opportunity to play Molly Aster in the play "Peter and the Starcatcher"! I am beyond excited to be a part of the production, and if you have a chance you should definitely check it out!

Based on the novel "Peter and the Starcatchers" by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and adapted for the stage by Rick Elice, the play follows the story of a young orphan and how he comes to be Peter Pan. Without giving too much away, the story begins with a group of orphan friends meets Molly Aster on a ship on their way from England to the island of Rundoon. They work together to prevent a magical substance called starstuff from falling into the wrong hands. Black Stache is the villain in the story and attempts to take control of the substance. The play is a comical and creative story for those who love adventurous fairy tales. You may even find out how all of the characters from "Peter Pan" come to exist!

Our production is stacked with a stellar cast of 11 men and one woman (me). I can't wait to dive deep into the rehearsal process. Led by fearless director Brian Artman, this group of people is sure to create a special experience and see Artman's vision through! There will be fantastic stunts and intricate movement on stage. It's very much an ensemble show, so everyone has a hand in helping create the story.

Attending this production would be the perfect night out for a family. The humor is clever and the story has a lot of heart. It is my first opportunity to get involved with Community Players Theatre, and I already see that it's an important space where people in the community can come together to create beautiful theatre. It is one of the oldest community theatres in the nation completely staffed by volunteers. The first production through Community Players was produced in 1923. The first show that took place in its current location was "Death of a Salesman" in 1962. Community Players produces several productions a year, so there are plenty of opportunities to see local live theatre.

People should always support local live theatre. Local theatre is a crown jewel in the central Illinois area. It gives people an opportunity to express themselves, find a home, find family, and share art. There is nothing I want to be a part of more.

"Peter and the Starcatcher" runs from September 7 through 9 and 14 through 16 at Community Players Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois. Community Players is located at 201 N. Robinhood Lane. Tickets are $7.00 for children, $13 for seniors, and $15.00 for adults. Tickets can be purchased here. Can't wait to have you join us for this thrilling tale.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
