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 — flaming strawberries.
