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.

John O’Hurley will be the male lead in this show, and you’ll instantly recognize him. He was voted one of People magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive,” and is best known for playing the role of  “J. Peterman” on Seinfeld for man years. He was also on Dancing with the Stars and hosted Family Feud before returning to the stage where he shines as CHICAGO‘s Billy Flynn.

ABOUT THE FOOD: We could say so many things about the incredible food at Bordinos, but we think the pictures probably say it all.

You and the kids will be wondering how in the world LEO did what he did, even hours after the show has ended. This award-winning production has been amazing audiences in New York, Berlin, Montreal and in cities all over the world.

In its review, the New York Times said, “The audience gets gravity-defying spectacle and the wizard behind the curtain at the same time.”

Since this is one of those “have to see it to believe it” type of shows, here’s a short video clip from LEO.

HOW TO ENTER: To throw your name in the hat for the FOUR tickets to see LEO, click the words “post a comment” below and tell us about some of the leo adways your kids like to “climb the walls.”

Do they get rowdy by running laps around your kitchen? Do they make the bed into a trampoline? (For example, one time when my daughter was 3 years old, I walked into the room to find her hanging by her fingertips off the top of a window casing. She had climbed a wing-back chair to get there and was awfully proud of her daring feat. Nearly scared the life out of me.)
