Strong wind forecast
Talk about putting your body on the line for art! During one of their physically demanding rehearsals, The Wind Speaks to Wellington cast member Hannah Clarke, broke her foot.
But the show must
go on, and the cast are having fun writing the bandage into
the script (I'm so looking forward to seeing that!). The Wind Speaks to Wellington opens
tomorrow night (Tues 27 Nov) at 6:30pm.
With the Revenge of the Amazon's cast on roller skates, there's even more potential for antics! Shakespearean disco fever starts this Friday (30 Nov) at 8:30pm.

loonesco presents …
street animation for the masses
out of the paddocks and into the shed
An hour of hokey-pokey, gumboot-throwing blokes and sheep. It’s flat stick, open slather on the doodackie huru we call home.
Ladies bring a plate. Blokes bring a crate.

_Have Yourself an Alternative Little
If you dread all of the consumerism and fake-snow-on-shop-windows that goes along with Christmas, why not try something a little different?
Here are some ideas:
- Use recycled paper to wrap your pressies, or even newspaper.
- Buy someone an online music download voucher - no wrapping paper or transport costs!
- Have a 'buy nothing' Christmas.
- Vouchers for goods and services (like massages, music, clothes, theatre shows etc) are only one piece of paper and they allow you to support local bands, designers, shops, venues etc.
- When everyone asks you what you want for Christmas, tell them to take whatever they want to spend on you and give it to a charity of your choice.
- Buy second hand goods! A nice vintage dress, retro crockery and all sorts can be found at your local op-shop, trash palace or David N White Gallery!
- One of my friends figured out the perfect price ceiling for gifts. She spends no more than $12.50 per person, which is enough to get something useful and personalised without going overboard.
Here's a few websites that might help in your quest for an ethical, anti-consumerist Christmas.
Trade Aid, Buy Nothing Christmas, Oxfam Unwrapped Gifts.
