Note from the mams: Congratulations to Becky Upshaw, winner of the WAC tickets!
Happy Monday, mamas. This week’s giveaway is PERFECT for those of you with little ones — kids who may not have yet seen a show on stage at the Walton Arts Center. One of the sweetest children’s books we know — Guess How Much I Love You — will come to life on stage December 14, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. Speaking from experience, we can tell you that watching your son or daughter see a show on stage for the first time is a really special milestone. Their eyes light up and they never forget it. Pure magic.
We’ve got four tickets to see the show, and we’re pairing these tickets with a gift card for lunch or dinner at our favorite pizza place on Dickson Street — U.S. Pizza. It’s just steps away from the Walton Arts Center and the food and atmosphere are perfect for a family outing.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Based on the classic book by the same name, this show is about a bunny named Little Nutbrown Hare. He loves Big Nutbrown Hare as far as he can reach and as high as he can hop, but Big Nutbrown Hare loves him as far as his long arms can reach and as high as his strong legs can hop. This show is perfect for kids who are aged 3 to 6, but please note that this is also an infant-friendly performance, so there’s no need to get a sitter since you can bring baby brother or sister along, too.
If you don’t already own the picture book, we’d recommend checking it out at the library or picking up a copy so you can read it to your kids before they see the show. They’ll love watching the book unfold on stage.
ABOUT THE FOOD: Even the pickiest eaters in the family love U.S. Pizza. Their food has become legendary in Northwest Arkansas, and we especially like the variety they offer. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, there are award-winning salads and sandwiches on the menu, too. Click HERE to see the menu online.
