HOW TO ENTER: If you’d love to win these four fundraiser tickets, just leave a comment telling us your favorite memory from kindergarten (since this fundraiser will help BCA’s existing pre-school and brand new kindergarten).

I (Shannon) remember feeling terribly shy the first day of kindergarten and how a little boy — who’s still my friend to this day — came up and asked if I wanted to play in the classroom kitchen. I also remember playing Duck Duck Goose and the time my teacher stapled her own finger to the wall.

Giveaway: 2 winners to see Fluff at Walton Arts Center!

Fluff-Web-Ad-266x375Alas, Spring Break is over. But we’ve got something to cheer you up!

We’re giving away two family packs to see the kids’ show Fluff at Walton Arts Center. TWO MAMAS will win — and each will receive four tickets!

Fluff will appear at WAC on April 13 at 2 p.m.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Fluff is a fun, simple Australian theater piece best for children ages 4-10. During the show, viewers meet the Ginghams, a family that worries about lost and discarded toys and travels the world to find them.

As each toy is introduced one by one, audiences will learn the story of how it came to be lost and its journey to a new home. After receiving a movement, a vocal sound, a piece of music and a nightlight, watch as the Gingham family safely tucks each toy back into bed.

Fluff has been acclaimed for its originality and its combination of song, movement, projection and audience participation.

With a bright set and plenty of song and dance, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy. New technology and handmade toys combine throughout the show to create an original performance that children and parents alike can appreciate.

“One of the most imaginative shows for the young you will find. Highly sophisticated and great fun…the children – and the adults – loved it!” –The Advertiser (Sydney Opera House season)

“The laughs come as much from the adults in the audience as their enthralled children” –The Daily Telegraph (Sydney)

HOW TO ENTER: If you’d love to win one of these four-packs of Fluff tickets, just leave a comment telling us about one of your FAVORITE childhood toys. You can also email your answer to us at giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com.

Here’s a video so you can get a feel for this (hilarious!) show:

Giveaway: Tickets to The Wizard of Oz at Walton Arts Center

WizardofOzBanner

If you’re ready to follow the yellow brick road, we’ve got 4 Wizard of Oz tickets to give away!

This awesome show will be at Walton Arts Center and there will be seven performances running from Tuesday, April 1- Sunday, April 6.

  • Tuesday, April 1 at 7:30pm
  • Wednesday, April 2 & Thursday, April 3 at 7pm
  • Friday, April 4 & Saturday, April 5 at 8pm
  • Saturday, April 5 & Sunday, April 6 at 2pm

ABOUT THE SHOW: Generations of families are familiar with the cherished MGM classic, The Wizard of Oz, and now, audiences can see it live on stage. Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber reimagines the beloved film, but enhances it with computer-generated imagery and a few songs from iconic characters who had nothing but dialogue in the film. The show features all the beloved songs from the Oscar-winning movie, as well as a few new numbers by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

totoThe North American tour of Wizard of Oz originated in Canada and has traveled from coast to coast. When the show makes a stop at Walton Arts Center, one of its principal cast members will be coming back to his home state. Dorothy’s dog, Toto, is portrayed by native Arkansas pup, Nigel — a six-year-old Cairn terrier, the same breed as the original Toto (whose name was Terry) in the 1939 film.

Nigel was rescued from the Northeast Arkansas Human Society in Jonesboro by his guardian/trainer, William Berloni, in 2008. Berloni has trained over 40 animal performers for 36 years, including the original Sandy in “Annie” and Bruiser in the stage version of “Legally Blonde.”

Additionally, this production stars Danielle Wade as Dorothy, who was chosen by the Canadian public through the reality show Over the Rainbow. This energetic production features exciting special effects, extravagant sets and intricate costumes. Content is suitable for children—all ages can truly enjoy this production.

HOW TO ENTER: If you’d love to win these 4 tickets to see the The Wizard of Oz, just click on the word “comment” below and tell us your favorite scene from the show. Is it when Dorothy first meets the Tin Man? Maybe you love the part where Glenda appears? We’re still a little scared of the flying monkeys, we have to admit.

Giveaway: Suggest a song for the Mom Prom playlist and win a free gift card!

girls dancing promWe need your help! The NWA Mom Prom is happening April 26, 2014 (get your ticket by clicking here) and we need to know what our DJ, Frankie, should play on Prom Night. He played some GREAT stuff last year which kept most of us on the dance floor all night, as you can see in the photos pictured here.

Help us make an AWESOME playlist of dance songs. The songs can be new or old — just as long as they make you want to get up and dance. (Any song that makes you want to “car dance” at stoplights will also work.) Anybody up for a little Bruno Mars, Prince, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake or Jennifer Lopez?

We’ll use your suggestions to create the list of music that DJ Frankie plays on Prom Night, so tell us as many of your favorites as you like. The songs with the most votes will most definitely make the list.

You can also email your answer to us at giveaways@nwaMotherlode.com.

You can use the gift card to stock up on songs for your own music library or keep it handy so you’ll have some free cash to use the next time your kids ask, “Mom, can I download this app? It costs 99 cents.” (Raise your hand if you hear that question at least half a dozen times a month.)

We’ll also have a bowl on the edge of the Mom Prom stage on Prom Night that will hold song requests. If you think of a song you really want to hear while you’re at the Prom, just jot it down and toss it into the bowl. The DJ will pick song requests out of the bowl throughout the night so he can keep your favorites coming.
