Being a Mom to 11 year old twins makes for a zany, unpredictable, yet richly rewarding life. Thank goodness for my wonderfully supportive hubby who keeps me grounded. I'm a writer, an editor and an online media professional. I write about pretty much anything that inspires me. I enjoy interviewing interesting people and sharing my thoughts on my family's experiences at various events and activities. I might also share a favorite recipe or two, particularly if it's something I've thrown together that turns out to be yummy! Outside of contributing to, you can also find me at and over at my blog

Rumpelstiltskin at Dallas Children’s Theater March 8 – April 7

Rumpelstiltskin - Dallas Children's Theater

Rumpelstiltskin Opens with a Big Bash at DCT – Special Performance Times During Spring Break

Kathy Burks and Company spin pure gold as they bring their delightful Brothers Grimm tale to life for Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) and celebrate 40 seasons as a professional troupe.  Dallas Children’s Theater presents Rumplestiltskin playing March 8 – April 7, 2013 at DCT’s Rosewood Center for Family Arts.


Deep within the woods of Germany, a poor miller boasts that his daughter Liesl can spin straw into gold.  When the king learns of this extraordinary talent, he procures her into his service.  Liesl is fearful of the consequences if she is unable to fulfill this impossible task when a mysterious little man arrives to “save the day.”  He spins the straw into gold for her – in exchange for a terrible promise.  When he holds her to her word she must break the spell, which can only be lifted if she can guess his name.  Can she solve the riddle before it’s too late?

Rumplestiltskin promises to be an enriching visit to the theater – a gold rush not to be missed!  Enjoyed by ages 4 and above.
