Giveaway: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

For us, it’s just not Christmas until we’ve seen Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on television. (Did you know it’s been on TV now for 50 years?) So imagine how excited we were when we found out that this beloved show would be coming to life on stage as a musical at the Walton Arts Center! We are PUMPED!

And you’ll be pumped, too, if you win the FOUR tickets to this show that we’re giving away this week. You’ll be in the audience on opening night on December 21, 2015 at 7 p.m. And we’re pairing the four show tickets with a $30 gift card to U.S. Pizza so you can feed your crew before or after the show at the best pizza place on Dickson Street.

hermey the elf200ABOUT THE SHOW: The story tells the tale of a young Rudolph who, because of the appearance of his bright, shining nose, is ousted from the reindeer games in Christmas-town. He flees town, meets up with new friends Hermey and Yukon, and a series of funny and endearing adventures ensue including a visit to The Island of Misfit Toys. Rudolph journeys home, where a snowstorm of epic proportions is threatening Christmas. Can Rudolph save his family and friends and help Santa save the holiday?

No worries… If you love the TV special, you’ll love the stage version, too, because the creators of the musical have stayed faithful to the original show. This production is great for kids age 5 and up.

ABOUT THE FOOD: U.S. Pizza has become a Fayetteville landmark and it’s famous not only for its pizza but also for its salads, sandwiches and an awesome, kid-friendly atmosphere. (Did you know that the restaurant even has an extensive gluten-free section on the menu? It rocks!)
