Green spaces in and around Philly

Green space… not the graffiti that I see (but not as much as when I first moved to Philly!) There’s actually been some really neat murals going up around my neighborhood!! Very interesting pictures and discussions happen with the kids after we see some of them, because they are different…… I like them…

hello dolly

Phil-Mont’s next musical

This matinee is free for homeschool families and friends of Phil-Mont.

Regular show price is $10 for adults, $8 for students.

Hello, Dolly! takes place in the little old New York of 1910 and is based on the story The Matchmaker  by Thornton Wilder.  Known for edgy Americana like Our Town and The Skin of our Teeth, this Wilder piece is not wild, but is instead a true period piece with all of the edginess of Mom, apple pie, and the American flag.  What makes it delightful are the distinct characters, the snappy, surprising dialogue, and a hit score by Broadway legend Jerry Herman.  Original stars like Carol Channing, Ginger Rogers, and Pearl Bailey “brought down the house” as did Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters in the 2017 revival.  Our hope is to do a bit of theatrical house-wrecking with our Phil-Mont production as well.

Bio

Two of Jessica Glick’s favorite pastimes as a child were playing school with her little brother (she as the teacher and he as the sometimes-willing student) and finding bird’s nests to watch. Working with children and spending time in nature are still two of her strongest passions. She completed Faith Builders Training Institute’s two-year Teacher Apprenticing Program and was a lower elementary homeroom teacher for four years. After leaving the classroom fulltime, Jessica taught classes for a homeschool co-op and tutored children with dyslexia. As a stay-at-home mom of a toddler, she is still learning about child development and education.
