“The Bluebird” Musical

Your children must be bored to their wits’ end now that school is out and they have not much thing to do at home. Of course, you would allow them occasional couch potato-ing especially when all their tasks at done but you’d definitely cringe to see them watch the telly all day {I do!}. The key to keeping them entertained during their free time is to keep them occupied. Enroll them in a summer classs or two and I am sure you will thank yourself that you did.

Anyway, one great summer activity will have to be enrolling your children in drama or acting lessons. Browse through the press release below for more information about Trumpet’s The Bluebird Musical…

Parents are constantly on the lookout for fun and wholesome entertainment for their kids. With all the violence and gore that’s available with just the touch of a remote or a computer mouse, parents wish for other options for family fun and amusement.

Trumpets understands this need and is proud to bring “The Bluebird”, a musical adaptation of the classic tale by Belgian playwright Maurice Maeterlinck. The Bluebird is about a magical adventure of two children in their quest for true happiness. With book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo and music by Rony Fortich, this all-Filipino musical is ready to captivate children of all ages with a delightful story, colorful characters, beautiful music, fantastic production design, brilliant staging, hearty laughs, touching moments and a valuable lesson.

As the first Asian professional gospel theater group widely known for musicals that provide wholesome family entertainment such as “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe”, “Little Mermaid”, “Joseph the Dreamer”, and “N.O.A.H.”, Trumpets dedicated the last three years developing “The Bluebird” and is very excited, along with other theater performers, about this big musical comeback. “I think it’s very exciting. I always look forward to original work. It really shows off how talented we Filipinos are.” says Menchu Lauchengco-YuloFranco Laurel agrees, “I am really happy and excited that Trumpets is finally doing another original musical. Jaime and Rony will definitely give us a theatrical gem and I can’t wait to see The Bluebird come to life this September.”

Joaquin Valdez enthuses, “Trumpets is the only production company that has successfully brought the stuff of dreams and fantasy to life. I don’t know of any other theater company that has matched the caliber Trumpets has introduced.” Even Jake Macapagal is “extremely proud of Trumpets’ line of successful adaptations. The reputation that Trumpets has for family entertainment and supporting the local scene with vibrant productions and storytelling is second to none.” With the show’s theme of finding happiness where your heart is, Lynn Sherman too is “excited like everyone! I hear it’s going to be a LOT of fun!”

Preparing for Summer Camp + Sleepovers

summer, tips + tricks, parenting 101, summer, summer activities for children, best things to do this summer

Summer brings vacations, camp and lots of sleepovers so it’s a good idea to have some extra sleeping mats and bags on hand along with an inflatable bed or a folding cot. With so much back and forth between friends’ homes, vacation sites and camp, things like shower and toiletry kits are another handy thing to stock up on. It’s also a time when camping out in the back yard or even on the back deck is a popular pursuit with the younger set which means that one or more parent might well end up as a chaperon – you don’t want to be the one who barely gets a wink of sleep and wakes up with a stiff back and a lot of mosquito bites.

There are some easy solutions to make sure everyone gets a good night’s sleep on the road or in the backyard. The little ones can use a nap mat, much as they do in daycare or at school. Older kids can use a regular sleeping bag plus if you are at home there is always the option of brining out a mattress or floor pillows to create a more comfortable base to sleep on. The most comfortable portable option is an inflatable mattress; make sure to cover it with a fitted sheet or it can be noisy and sticky, especially in hot weather.

Insects can be a problem so bed netting is a great idea – pick up a few bed canopies – they can be used indoors or out. The kids may be sleeping in a tent but you may find yourself on a lawn chaise; simply drape the bed canopy over the chaise to enjoy a more restful night’s sleep. If you have an umbrella you can use it to create a roof of sorts and then drape the bed canopy over it so you have more room to move around with hitting the netting.
