‘Theirs Is The Kingdom’ Gives Us The Keys

Do you listen to stories from the homeless on the street or do you find yourself walking a bit faster than before? Has the light not changed fast enough when one of these people got closer to your car with a sign carrying a message explaining their need for food or money? Did you give the sign a glance? Have you ever looked a homeless man or woman in the eyes? Do you shrink or shy away when poverty, mental health, or addiction is obvious in the outward appearance of a person in your presence? You may say no. But your subconscious has answered truthfully.

The documentary THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM shows how the elements of communication, education, art, and love are breeding grounds for humanity and awareness in all things. And so, this documentary is for all of you reading this.

Escape DC’s Heatwave with A Midsummer Night’s Dream

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the first Shakespeare play that I remember watching. My grandparents had taken me, probably elementary school aged, to watch the performance at Shakespeare in the Park in Seattle. I didn’t realize it then, but the wooded enclave of the outdoor stage was the perfect site to watch fairies flit about mischievously. 

Fast forward a few decades, and the creative minds of Tony Cisek (Production Design), Jim Hunter (University of South Carolina), and South Side Design and Building have transformed the National Building Museum into a similarly magical setting.
