Save the Date: Girls’ Night Out to See Dirty Dancing!

dd show680

Hey mamas! Hope you’re enjoying a great holiday today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

We just wanted to tell you about a fun Girls’ Night Out event we’re hosting in March so you can save the date. On March 9th, we’ll be going to see Dirty Dancing come to life on stage at the Walton Arts Center. We would LOVE it if you and a few of your friends would join us. (Put March 9th at 7 p.m. in your calendar!)

Dirty DancingAll you’ll need to do is purchase your ticket to the show (at a discounted price) by calling Kimberly Jones at the Walton Arts Center. Kimberly’s direct phone number is 479-571-2719. (If she doesn’t pick up, be sure to leave a message and she will call you back.)

Also, be sure to let Kimberly know you’ll be attending the Girls Night Out event with the nwaMotherlode group.  (We’re also arranging a pre-show Happy Hour, and you’re definitely invited to that, too. We’ll post more details on it soon.)

You have two options on ticket pricing, depending on where you want to sit. (Regardless of which one you choose, you’ll still be sitting with the nwaMotherlode group, so no worries!) Not only does our group get a ticket discount, we also don’t have to pay any extra ticketing fees.

Option 1: $58.95 (regularly priced at $69)

Option 2: $47.90 (regularly priced at $56)

Last year, we did a Girls’ Night Out for the opening of Mamma Mia at Walton Arts Center and we had a blast with the ladies who joined us for Happy Hour and the show. This year’s show is going to be just as great. (We won’t even mention how many times we’ve seen the movie Dirty Dancing. We’ll be the ones lip-syncing some of the lines right along with the actors.)

Here’s a video sneak peek of the show. It looks SO good! Can’t wait!

Great Date Giveaway: A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder

gentlemans-guide

Happy Monday, mamas! We hope your December is going great and you’re enjoying the holiday season.

We’ve got a giveaway starting today to help make it even brighter: 2 tickets to see A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder at Walton Arts Center on Jan 10th! This show, Tony Award® winner for Best Musical, will run Jan. 10 through Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017.

This would be a GREAT date night — or Girls’ Night — out!

ABOUT THE SHOW: Gentleman’s Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary. All the while, he’s got to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?) and the constant threat of landing behind bars. Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea.

This show is fast-paced, zany and has great singing. If you want to bring kids, this show is recommended for ages 10+.

What’s A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder like? Here’s a little video:

Giveaway: Tickets to see the Hip Hop Nutcracker!

Happy Monday, mamas!

We hope you had a happy Thanksgiving and a fun weekend. Let’s get this week started off right with a giveaway! We’ve got 4 tickets to give to one local mama and her family to see the Dec. 22nd performance of the Hip Hop Nutcracker! These people can DANCE and the music’s great, too. Such a fun show, so much energy.

Here’s a short video to give you a little taste of how much this shop will be hip-hoppin’:

ABOUT THE SHOW: Heat up your Christmas tradition with an unforgettable contemporary mash-up of a timeless holiday story. A supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers combines with hip hop beats mixed by a live DJ and an on-stage electric violinist, turning Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way.

A spell cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer takes Maria-Clara and her prince back in time to the moment when her parents first met. Digital scenery transforms a palace of sugarplums into a modern, romantic setting in 1980s Brooklyn. If your family is more into break-dancing than ballet, this Nutcracker is the perfect gift!
