Sunday is the 2017 Tony Awards, so it’s time to get ready for your viewing party! Whether it’s a party of one or just you and your roomie, I’ve got few things you can’t skip this year, including an incredible chance to both thank the people that support you AND donate to charity.
- Snacks: This is obvious, because you can’t watch TV without munching. I’m pretty sure that’s science. Popcorn is a must, but feel free to choose whatever you’d like to accompany it. I chose apple slices with a dollop of peanut butter, because I wanted something a little sweeter. I also think a cheese platter would be great and, if you’re super into salty foods, chips and queso is always a viable option.
- Drinks: I said the word “party,” so of course we need drinks. Plus, nothing easies you out of the Sunday blues more than a couple of cocktails. You can pick your poison, but my recommendations are champagne, wine or Moscow mules.
- Your phone: Most days, I’d recommend that you ditch your phone and enjoy the company and show, but not this year! Grant Thornton is looking to honor those around us that help us succeed. Introducing the #SupportingCast Challenge: they realize that no matter what (on stage or otherwise), we all need our own #SupportingCast to encourage us and lift us up.
They’re celebrating the #SupportingCast in their company and asking Tony Awards’ viewers to honor their own support system by tweeting or instagramming about who has personally touched your life and using the #SupportingCast hashtag. You basically get to nominate Your #SupportingCast!
The best part about it all, is that at the end of the award show, they will donate for every social post shared with that hashtag. Donations will go to The American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League Foundation.
RSVP Here and join me on Sunday in doing something sooo simple to help support this incredible and enriching industry!
