MoonsABalloon_Web_700x300

Happy Monday, mamas!  Today we’re giving away 4 tickets to see the kid’s show The Moon’s a Balloon at Walton Arts Center on April 28th!

A balloon can be a friend to play with or a maker of friendships. It can hold its breath for days and disappear in an instant. It can make your hair stand on end and fill you with laughter. A balloon can be something loved or something lost; something shared or something broken. Is the moon a balloon? It can be. A balloon can be anything you want it to be.

ABOUT THE SHOW: The Moon’s a Balloon was inspired by a poem by ee cummings which suggests that amazing possibilities can come from the simplest of things. The Moon’s a Balloon is a visual-theater production that celebrates the possibilities of play, the making of friendships and the wonder of creation. One of the underlying themes of the show is that all sorts of possibilities reside in the simplest of things.

Simple white balloons, two performers and a musician can, through exploration, play and a search for meaning, give rise to a rich variety of composition, beauty, laughter, wonder, joy and story. Best for ages 4+

Giveaway: Tickets to see ‘The Curious Incident’ at Walton Arts Center

curious incident

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, winner of five 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Play, is a mesmerizing play that will debut at Walton Arts Center on Tuesday, April 18 and feature eight performances through Sunday, April 23.

This new play is adapted from Mark Haddon’s best-selling novel by the same name. And we’ve got 4 tickets for a local mama to win so her family or friend group can see the show for FREE on April 18th! It sounds absolutely amazing (see a video below for an idea of how compelling the play is).

ABOUT THE SHOW: The play, recommended for ages 12+, follows fifteen-year-old Christopher, who is exceptionally intelligent but is ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

Staged in a box-like set, the play uses projections, music, sound effects and choreography to illuminate Christopher’s whirling thoughts. Tony-winning director Marianne Elliott (War Horse and Curious) presents a series of fast-paced scenes in which Christopher’s point of view is reflected through interaction with his parents and teacher, plus various neighbors and authority figures portrayed by an ensemble cast.

“It’s about all of us encountering things that we find overwhelming and confusing, and feeling that fear, but driving through anyway,” Elliot said. You’ll be dazzled by the journey into Christopher’s world—including a surprise post-curtain call scene that’s not to be missed. Get ready for a uniquely exciting theatrical experience.

Mnozil_1

Well, it’s the Monday after Spring Break. We’re dragging a little, how about you?

To help brighten this day, we’re giving away 4 tickets to see Mnozil Brass! Playing together for more than 25 years, Mnozil (pronounced “nozzle”) Brass has a refined but buoyant sound reminiscent of an old-time concert band, both rousing and fun, performing jazzier arrangements mixed with a bit of classical and Broadway.

Their powerful brass sound and creative use of physical comedy makes this a lively concert your family won’t forget. The show is on Wednesday, April 5th, at 7 p.m.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Mnozil Brass is bringing three trumpets, three trombones, one tuba and lots of laughs to Walton Arts Center as part of the Kimberly-Clark Family Fun Series. These tickets will be for the “Cirque” show. “Cirque” is the newest escapade of the seven Mnozil Brass players who enter the ring to combat the monkey business of daily life with music and humor, transforming it into a nice, tidy flea circus if only for a few hours.

With more than 130 performances a year, Mnozil Brass has sold out houses in Europe, Russia, Israel, China, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, and has captivated audiences with their blend of immense virtuosity and theatrical wit. No wonder their videos have garnered millions of YouTube views, and their fans travel countless miles to hear them play.

Here’s a video to give you a little taste of the show:
