Giveaway: Tickets to comedy show at Walton Arts Center

second city nut crackingNo matter what’s going on in your life, it always feels a little more manageable when you can laugh a little. And you’ll be laughing A LOT if you win the four tickets we’re giving away to the opening night performance of this show: Second City’s Nut-Cracking Revue. This famous sketch comedy troupe will be live on stage at the Walton Arts Center on Friday, December 5, 2014 at 8 p.m.

Second_City_Nut_Cracking_TNEWThese comedy performers have been SO popular with audiences that this is their seventh time to perform at the Walton Arts Center. Part of the reason the group draws such huge crowds is because they are known as the training ground for some of the most famous names in comedy — names like John Belushi, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, John Candy, Tina Fey, Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert.

This is grown-up humor, so this show is not intended for kids. But it’s perfect for a double-date with fun friends. (This ticket package is valued at more than $140!)

To make it even more fun, we’re including dinner at our favorite pizza place on Dickson Street — U.S. Pizza. It’s known for its award-winning pizza and their salads and sandwiches are phenomenal, too.

If so, you know it’s hilarious (the movie is rated PG, FYI). Well, good news, Elf lovers! The Broadway show Elf the Musical is coming to Walton Arts Center and it’s based on the beloved 2003 movie with Will Ferrell.

We’ve got four tickets to give away for opening night on Nov. 25th!

ABOUT THE SHOW: This delightful Broadway musical is for all ages. Elf the Musical is the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole where he is welcomed into Santa’s household. Unaware that he is actually human, Buddy’s size and poor toy-making skills cause him to face the truth.

With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to find his birth father and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. Elf the Musical “is happy enough for families, savvy enough for city kids and plenty smart for adults!” says Variety magazine.

This modern-day Christmas classic will help you embrace your inner elf.
