Note from the mamas: Congratulations to Andrea Poplin, mama to six and winner of the ZooZoo tickets. She can’t wait to take her three youngest children to see this. Have fun, Poplins!
Last year’s Artosphere Festival was so much fun, Walton Arts Center is bringing it back again! The six-week festival celebrates artists who are inspired by nature.
Including music, theater, visual arts, lectures and more, Artosphere features dozens of arts events presented in both traditional (on stages) and unusual (on a nature trail or in a chapel) locations in April and May. One of the great kid shows during kick-off week is Imago Theater’s ZooZoo and today we’re giving away a FOUR-PACK of these tickets!
The show will be on Saturday, April 23, at 11 a.m. Read this funny snippet about the show: The rabbits are big enough to drive cars. The polar bears are little enough to curl up in your lap. The hippos might not weigh thousands of pounds, but their bed still doesn’t seem big enough for both of them. Welcome to the world of Imago Theater!
HOW TO ENTER: If you’d like to win FOUR tickets to see ZooZoo, just click on the comment button below and answer this question: If your kid could bring home an animal from the zoo, what would it be? My daughter LOVES horses, so she’d probably go for a zebra. She always takes lots of pictures of the big cats, too.
