Giveaway: Tickets to Shrek the Musical

We’re about to go BIG and go GREEN! Because this week we’re giving away FOUR tickets to Shrek the Musical on opening night, Tuesday, October 30th, at the Walton Arts Center. Woo-hooooo! Your kids are going to go nuts for this show!

We’re pairing the show tickets with food we think all ogres would love — great Mexican food from Mojitos in Fayetteville.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Shrek already took movie theaters by storm and now he’s staking a claim on stages across the country. The hit musical is based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks movie and it brings the story of everyone’s favorite ogre to life on stage. And it wouldn’t be Shrek without a talking donkey, a villain with a short temper, a cookie with attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits.

The musical features an amazing score of 19 new songs, lots of laughs, great dancing and stunning scenery. It has been called the funniest new musical on Broadway.

ABOUT THE FOOD: This giveaway package includes a dinner gift card to Mojitos Mexican Grill on Joyce Boulevard in Fayetteville. Mojitos is, of course, famous for the drink for which they are named and also for the amazing food. (Did you know they have TEN different Mojito flavors to choose from? Yum.) The Mojitos menu also includes favorites like guacamole made fresh at your table, the famous (and enormous) Razorback burrito and their signature dessert โ€” flaming strawberries.

  1. My favorite charecter is Donkey for sure!!! He is so funny and just adds so much to the story!!

  2. At our house Fiona is the favorite- not too girly but still wears dresses!

  3. The donkey is my favorite! He always has something hilarous to say! My daughter love Princess Fiona!

  4. Our favorite is Fiona! She’s so spunky and stands up for herself and why she believes in. Can’t wait to see the show!

  5. The 2 yr old says Donk-EEEE (I think that’s how I’d spell his squeal)

    The 5yr old says Shrek

    The 9 yr old says Fiona

  6. Donkey and gingy keep me laughing even on the 5,000th time to watch lol! We LOVE shrek!

  7. Fiona is our favorite. We even named our puppy Fiona and she can be a real oger sometimes.

  9. I love Fiona and so does my 5 yr old daughter. Well, she IS a princess after all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Definitely Shrek. I love that the hero of the story is NOT the handsome prince. Shrek teaches us a little about loving someone for who they are and being comfortable in our own skin.

  15. LOVE Shrek! When it first came out, I was working at Walmart in the marketing department- just so happened to be our customer and I got to do some super cool things with it and even met Jeffrey Katzenberg! I would LOVE to take my daughter ans share my joy and love of Shrek! Hard to choose a favorite, but Shrek and Donkey are both so funny and witty! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Of course, Puss in Boots!! Who could deny those sweet eyes and dashing swashbuckling moves?

  17. I don’t know if I can pick just one character, but I guess it’d have to be Shrek. I love how Fiona melts his big ogre heart.

  18. My favorite character is FAIRY GODMOTHER!! Is that wrong?! ๐Ÿ™‚ She just plays the role so well … ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Donkey!!! Our family loves him so much we have nicknamed Papa & Meme’s dog Donkey

  20. Puss n Boots was my favorite–how could you resist those big, expressive eyes!….
