*******PLEASE BECOME A MEMBER OF THE WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE….  As a proud Board Member of the Waterfront Playhouse for 13 years, I am hoping that you will take the time to read the following. Theaters aren’t able to rely on Ticket Sales alone to keep them going…that is only a tiny part of it.  In order to continue to present the kind of quality theater you have come to expect from us, we need YOU to help! If you are already a MEMBER of the Waterfront Playhouse Family, I ask that you consider deepening your commitment financially by becoming a member at a higher level than you had before.  Each level provides special perks and privileges….  BUT, the important thing is to look at it as not so much as ‘what you can get out of your membership’ but what you are giving and doing to provide Key West with the BEST Theater experience possible!  If you have Never been a Member of the Waterfront Playhouse before…. I hope you will realize that we NEED YOUR HELP and support more than ever!…now right NOW!  You can go online to www.waterfrontplayhouse.org or call 305-294-5015 to order your membership….and you can see the Breakdown of what each Level of Membership provides.  You will be helping us beyond words!

JUDY DAVIS PASSES AWAY…. This name may mean nothing to you, but Judy  meant the world to me…… she was one of the dearest and most precious friends I have ever had.  We met in 1984  when Bob & moved from Cleveland, O to Lake Forest, IL.  It was the first move for me ever, and I was having a big old pity party that I was leaving a home I loved plus family and long time friends….  Judy took me under her wing and we became ‘fast friends’….  Judy passed away on July 23….. When we heard that the doctors could do nothing more for her, she was released from the hospital with hospice care.  Her husband notified us that day by day her condition would worsen and that if we wanted to see her while she was still lucid, to not hesitate to see her.  That next day we drove to Illinois and I got to spend quality time with her while she was still able to communicate.  We shared a lot and I am grateful that we had those moments together.  Of course my heart is aching…She was a wonderful person and a cherished friend…. a great loss for all of us who were blessed to know her.

                            *** THE LEO PERSONALITY…..JULY 24 THROUGH AUGUST 23***
Leo is the most regal sign of the Zodiac.  Leos have an air of dignity and they behave accordingly.  They know they are different from everyone else and do not want anyone to forget it.  Just like the Sun which rules Leo, we would die without the Sun, and, on some level, Leos know that everyone else would wither up without them.  Leos are definitely life enhancing!
You can usually spot a Leo by their hair.  Most have luxuriant thick manes….and, they take a lot of care with their tresses…spending a lot of dollars on all the best treatments and products.  They are most exuberant and enthusiastic….as well as very warm and affectionate.  Everyone needs at least one Leo in their lives, simply for the ego boosts they will receive from their Leo friend.  Most Leos are quietly confident and don’t feel the need to prove how great they are.  It’s very important for a Leo to feel they’ve made an impression on people…but this happens quite naturally.  A Leo doesn’t have to put on airs and graces to do it.
Leos excel at organization…they are brilliant at making things happen.  They have a natural air of authority that makes everyone else sit up and take notice.
Family matters are very dear to every Leo’s heart.  They place a lot of importance on keeping in touch with scattered members of the clan.  They love gathering their relatives around them.  They have a big interest in their children and will teach them to stand on their own two feet.
Leo is the sign of creativity….they are filled with many talents, and need to find ways to express themselves creatively, lest they become frustrated and irritable.  They love to dance, act and paint….and also enjoy other people’s artistic abilities, especially in the cinema and theater.  Leo is the sign of Drama!!!!!
Love & Leo go together…they find it easy to show affection to those in their lives.  The typical Leo has a huge heart and boundless  supplies of love for everyone they care about.  Once someone has caught a Leo’s affections they’ll always retain a place in the Leo’s heart…unless they hurt them so deeply that they can never forgive them.  Loyalty is high on a Leo’s list of priorities….they are most faithful and expect their loved ones to behave in the same way.  They show their affection outwardly.  Their friends can look forward to being cherished by the Leo.
There is one snag in relationships, and that is the Leo’s tendency to boss others around.  It’s not that they mean to do it…more that they just can’t seem to help themselves!  Their confidence in themselves makes them feel they can always call the shots.  The best signs for a Leo are Gemini, Cancer, Libra….also Scorpio and Aries.
Leos have tremendous potential and can turn their hand to do virtually anything.  They are continuously discovering fresh talents and skills.  They are blessed with plenty of creative and artistic skills.  Leos don’t expect constant praise but they like to know they are appreciated.  If a Leo can’t make things happen, no one can.  Leos need to take center stage ….it is the rare Leo who is content to sit on the sidelines.  That is why so many Leos work in the entertainment industry, excelling at acting, dancing, singing. Writing, and designing.  They are also drawn to painting, fashion, sports, and cooking.
Leos need money because they have very high standards….only the very best is good enough for them, because they feel they deserve it.  They are drawn to the best that money can buy….Quality not quantity is their motto.  Leos adore lavishing presents on loved ones…just to let them know they care.  They love to spoil their favorite people no matter the cost.
WE LOVE OUR VERY TALENTED, CARING, LEO FRIENDS & FAMILY MEMBERS!!!
