    Double Bill: Scalia/Ginsburg & Trial by Jury

    DOUBLE BILL | Scalia/Ginsburg | Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia shared two things — a deep philosophical opposition and a deep love of opera. But what would happen if the two unlikely friends and ideological opposites had to appear before a Higher Power? Composer Derrick Wang’s charming comic opera — featuring actual lines from the justices’ opinions and speeches and musical nods to Handel, Mozart, and Puccini — is “a perfect...jewel.” (Opera Today

    Trial by Jury | Disorder in the court! After being left at the altar, the beautiful Angelina takes her former fiancé to court for breach of contract, charming everyone along the way. The verdict is unanimous: Gilbert & Sullivan’s courtroom romp is a delight.

    Kind to Kids Foundation provides emergency care duffel bags to children entering foster care, offering help and comfort during this traumatic time in their young lives. State workers, who directly serve children entering foster care, receive duffels from Kind to Kids and are able to give the children the beautiful blue duffels when they are being removed from their home for their own safety. My Blue Duffel Program is a meaningful way to bring comfort to a child during this difficult time.

    You can help in two ways! 

    1) Donate the following items:

    Coloring Books

    Crayola Crayons -24 ct. (Crayola brand only)
