Wednesday, July 19, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

Mary Poppins is playing at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival until August 5th. Take it from us here at RSVP, it is “practically perfect in every way!” A flick for children and adults alike, every age group can find magic in the beloved story of Mary Poppins. Whether you grew up watching the movie or have never seen it, ASF’s version of Mary Poppins will entertain you for the entire duration. Watch as the magical nanny, Mary Poppins, works to mend the Banks family’s fractured relationship. The plot is truly supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and the acting is an equal match. A live orchestra manages to keep the perfect beat, ideal for a musical like this.

Longtime director Geoffrey Sherman says his farewell with the final close of the curtain on Mary Poppins. Read more about his journey in our latest issue.

Come out and enjoy this beloved classic as it takes place on Montgomery’s very own Alabama Shakespeare Festival stage. We can promise there is an “element of fun” in every scene!

RSVP Takes the Skies

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

A recent List patron, Erik Box, gave the RSVP team a once in a lifetime opportunity this morning. Through his company, Box Aviation, Erik offered to take us on an aerial tour of our very own home city. And let us tell you, Montgomery is even more beautiful from 1000 feet above.

After a short drive to the bunker just past the Montgomery Airport, we took a quick tour of the on-site planes. Both privately-owned and Box Aviation planes filled the bunker. We went straight into the Box Aviation office where we were greeted by Erik and his staff. We got a quick run-down of plane procedures, strapped on our seatbelts, put on our headphones, and off we went. We toured the entire city of Montgomery: from downtown, all the way to Hampstead Living. The views of the Capital City were unparalleled; an experience we will not soon forget!

Box Aviation offers services spanning the entire aircraft-needs span. Flight Training, Aerial Photography, Discovery Flights, and Aircraft Management are a few of their most popular services. For more information visit their website.

We at RSVP want to thank Box Aviation for this truly elevated experience! Happy Flying!

Soaking Up the Last Few Weeks of Summer

Thursday, July 13, 2017

By: Anna Shay Wasden

As the month of July winds down and August quickly approaches, it can be easy to see your summer as almost done. But, don’t let yourself waste away the days in sadness. Instead get out there and savor those last days. Make memories, meet someone new, and do not be afraid to change your course. Mark Twain once said “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” What better mantra to remind yourself to experience everything you possible can?

Here are a few of our favorite ways to experience life to its fullest in the coming weeks:

  1. Explore your city.
  2. Learn five phrases in another language.
  3. Plant a new flower in your garden.
  4. Send a card to a friend.
  5. Plan a day trip to somewhere you have never been.
  6. Try out a new form of exercise.
  7. Try eating somewhere alone.
  8. Find a mentor.
  9. Learn to cook a new meal.
  10. Volunteer at a local nonprofit.
