Giveaway: Slava’s Snowshow at Walton Arts Center

If you’re ready to truly see a world of wonderment and fantasy, Slava’s Snowshow will take you there.

A bed becomes a boat in a storm-tossed sea; a woman is wrapped in cellophane and becomes flowers in a vase, a child walks in amazement inside a bubble, Slava boards a train and he becomes the train itself.

And be prepared to leave the WAC hall in ankle-deep snow!

  12. We survived the tornado outbreak of 2011. Living in north Alabama at the time, it was probably the most terrifying day of my life. Several friends lost their homes. Several lives in our community were lost. The wreckage was literally like something you have never seen before. We pressed on tho. Helping our community, cleaning debris any chance we got. Our children were involved as well. Something we will never forget. Mother Nature can be very frightening. Praising God for His mercy that day.

  13. I’ll never forget moving to Arkansas from California! I was in the third grade and was terrified because I knew there would be a chance of tornados. That is all my sisters would talk about. The first night in Greenwood, AR, almost 30 years ago, i am awaken to thunder, and loud roaring. We were staying with my grandma so we were lucky to have access to a shelter. I was hurried outside in the pouring rain and was still a bit groggy but I’ll never forget the feeling of complete horror as we went across the yard to the shelter. We slept there the rest of the night. To this day, I still have nightmares!

  14. The grand canyon was amazingly awe-inspiring. The colors, the depth, the beauty and awesomeness! Knowing that God can carve something like that with His finger…

  21. I have been looking for a great opportunity to introduce my 9-year-old, sports-fanatic boy to live theatre and this sounds like a perfect fit! Awe-inspiring moment – we moved here from aDallas suburb and I wasn’t prepared for the pure joy and surprise my son felt as he looked up to see a starry sky not muted by the bright lights of the city. We got a sleeping bag and laid there as he took it all in!

It would be the world to me if I could take my kids and see this specific show. Thank you!

  28. In early November, I stood on top of Hare Mountain on the ozark highlands trail and saw the awe-inspiring last remnants of fall in Arkansas. It was truly beautiful. My kiddos and I would love to see Snowshow. Thanks!

  29. I am inspired every day by my son’s love of life. I am inspired by my old dogs’ get up and go. I am inspired by so very many people who face such incredible challenges every single day. I am inspired by those who find the time, energy, money,…to help others. I am inspired by anyone who is friendly, smiling, courteous, polite…and i sure cannot forget how inspired i am by those who are patient and appreciative!

  30. The first time I saw the Arkansas River as we were riding the tram down to the bottom of the Royal Gorge when I was 8 years old, I was so in awe that the only thing I could do was cry. It really freaked my little brother out that I was happy and crying 🙂

  31. Seeing a tornado is very awe inspiring! We have seen a couple .. I also think snow and ice are awesome! Those little flakes and particles are so beautiful up close!

  32. Both of my children’s christenings. It still makes me choke up to look at the pictures.

  33. I think the most awe inspiring moment I’ve had was when my daughter was born. My husband and I tried for 1-1/2 years before we finally got her.

  39. Awe inspiring would have to be birthing my boys & I know they would truly love to see Slava’s Snow Show

  40. The birth of my 5th child was truly AWE~inspiring! I was diagnosed with stage 3 Triple Negative BC while pregnant with my 5th baby. I underwent 3 surgeries & 5 rounds of chemo, 2 blood transfusions and many many ER hospital visits all while pregnant. We placed our daughter into the Lords hands that he would keep her safe and that she would be born healthy. She was born 6 1/2 wks early via emergency csection..weighing 4 lbs 13onces she was perfect in everyway! She was a miracle…the moment on the operating table that Dr. Gorman placed her by me so I could catch a glimpse of her, was truly AWE-Inspiring to me…she was in the NICU unit for 2wks, got down to under 4lbs and bk up to 5lbs and was able to come home. She is now almost 5 and a healthy, happy little girl. Gods love and miracles always put me in AWE, but to have truly lived that moment was the most Aweing yet.

  41. The first time I took my daughter to Disney World, when we walked through the gates at Magic Kingdom and she saw Cinderella’s castle and say ‘Mommy, it’s really real!’ It’s moments like those I’ll cherish forever! Would love to take my family to see the show!

  45. I would have to say that hearing my babies’ heartbeats for the first time was the most awe inspiring experience I’ve ever had! Instant tears! All the feelings! ☺️

  46. The ice storm a few years back in NWA was quite the storm. I remember watching in amazement from our front window of the ice stacking up on the tree branches, cars, streets, and power lines. It was also amazing to see how our community pulled together to help those without power, groceries, or heat. Mother Nature is powerful!

  47. My awe-inspiring moment is when I saw one of the students at my school walk several feet without her crutches.

  48. I would love to win tickets! My awe inspiring event was the huge ice storm that hit NWA a few years ago. Everything was beautiful covered in a sheet of ice.

My youngest kiddos would love this show as they all would love to be a part of the show. So interactive. We’d love this.

  55. The ice storm of 2009 here in northwest Arkansas was awe-inspiring. I sat up most of the night listening to tree limbs crash to the ground all around our house. The next morning, we awoke to a wonderland of glittering ice covering every surface. Amazing how much destruction came from such beauty!

  66. The first time I saw Niagara Falls! The feeling of amazement was so worth the drive from Springdale to Toronto and back! Following on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook too!

  67. I am new to Northwest Arkansas so I don’t know my way around well. On Thanksgiving day I was going to my brother’s house. I somehow ended up on a rural road.

It was so beautiful like one of those autumn scenes you see in calendars.
