They are promoting a new show called “WHODUNIT?” (think of it as a sort of ‘Clue in a Tutu’ ) and have partnered with radio station Mix 97.1 to create a mystery microsite to engage the audience with a pre-performance […]

Creative Card Decks

Rather than pen-twirling, chewing on pencil erasers, drumming fingers on the desk, or madly clicking a ballpoint pen, creative card decks can provide relief for the fidgeting creative mind whose mental gears are spinning widly as they attempt to latch onto a concept with some creative teeth.
