*******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!

*** THE GEMINI PERSONALITY….MAY 22 THROUGH JUNE 21 ***

     This is one of the liveliest, most vibrant signs of the zodiac.  Geminis are mercurial, bright and terrific company.  Better yet…they never seem to age.  When they are older than dirt, they still look years younger than they really are.  They also have a very youthful attitude….love keeping up with the latest trends and their insatiable curiosity keeps them interesting at all times!  Geminis love the whole tech revolution as it opened up a whole new area of communicating.  They are in heaven with all the new do dads on the net, cell phone apps, etc.  Geminis love to keep in touch with people….e-mail and facebook had the Gemini in mind when they were invented.  Geminis love to chat…whether online or just to a neighbor….or someone standing in the checkout line at the market…the Geminis is always ready to talk!   They love a bit of gossip….and adore being ‘first with the latest news’.  Geminis are very eloquent…born communicators….and they find it easy to express ideas.  They do have a low boredom threshold and find it hard to concentrate on one thing for a long time unless they are completely enraptured by it.

      Versatility is a Gemini’s middle name….as they can easily tackle most things.  The Gemini’s emotions can dip up and down  dramatically and there are days when he may not want to talk to a soul…..but mostly there are the other days when they have to be physically yanked off the phone.

     Geminis have a tendency to change their opinions often.  Their ideas fluctuate according to the circumstances and the time of day.  It is what makes a Gemini such an interesting person to have around.  In love, Geminis are happiest dealing with ideas and not emotions, as they find it hard to express their feelings.   They feel swamped by a partner who is very emotional….it embarrasses them, and this usually great communicator, can become tongue-tied.  They can describe their emotions in an intelligent way, but it is another story when it comes to experiencing and living their feelings.  Those who wear their hearts on their sleeves make a Gemini wince.   There are big problems if a Gemini is in a relationship with a clinging vine….they are apt to do a disappearing act.  A Gemini’s popularity is so high that people adore their sunny nature, their ready laugh and their fascinating conversation.  A typical Gemini knows a little about an awful lot.  They look for partners who are on the same intellectual level as they are…they are drawn to those who make them think.  No matter how attractive someone might be physically, a Gemini won’t stay with them for long if they are boring, not bright, or do not have a sense of humor.  The best signs for a Gemini are Libra, Leo, Aries and Gemini!!!    

      Geminis are ideal for any job in the media, communications industry, advertising and sales.  They need to be in a job that keeps them busy with many variations…and if travel is involved, all the better.  Self-employment is also attractive to them.  As far as money is concerned, with a Gemini, it’s ‘now you see it…now you don’t.’  Geminis love to wheel and deal….they have such a great sales pitch, they could probably sell fish to penguins.  They are excellent negotiators.  They love impulse shopping and that can often get them in trouble!  We love our Gemini Friends and Family Members!!!
