Get your tickets for Legally Blonde The Musical, with music and lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin and book by Heather Hach. This delightful musical comedy is directed by Daria E. Troxell, with music and vocal direction by Nicki Kerns, and is presented at the SLV Performing Arts Center. Legally Blonde The Musical is a “fabulously fun award-winning musical,” and is based on the MGM film starring Reese Witherspoon. As the story begins, the main character - Elle Woods - appears to have it all. However, her life is quickly turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, she creatively devises a plan and earns admission to the prestigious law school. Elle embarks on a thought-provoking journey, from trying to win Warner back to discovering that she has more potential than just being someone’s girlfriend, and sets out to prove herself to the world.

Ask Nicole: Managing Screen Time
Pregúntele a Nicole: Manejando el tiempo de pantalla
Let’s face it. It’s hard to unplug from our screens. Our devices connect us to other people, as
well as to fun and useful information, but they can also have a downside. In this month’s
column, I’ll share some reminders for managing screen time as a family.
This monthly column provides tips for anyone who is helping raise children, based on the world-renowned Triple P – Positive Parenting Program, available to families in Santa Cruz County. If you have a question or idea for a future column, email me at [email protected].
Seamos realistas. Es difícil desconectarnos de nuestras pantallas. Nuestros dispositivos nos
permiten conectarnos a otras personas, así como a información divertida y útil, pero también
pueden tener un aspecto negativo.
En la columna de este mes, compartiré algunos
recordatorios para manejar el tiempo de pantalla como familia.
Esta columna mensual proporciona consejos para cualquier persona que está criando a niños, basado en el programa mundialmente reconocido Triple P – Programa de Paternidad Positiva, disponible para familias en el Condado de Santa Cruz. Si usted tiene alguna pregunta o idea para una futura columna, mande un correo electrónico a a [email protected].
