Giveaway: Tickets to Beauty & the Beast Musical at Walton Arts Center

Mamas, this is one of our FAVORITE giveaways so far this year. We’re giving one lucky mom FOUR tickets to see Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Broadway Musical at the Walton Arts Center on May 6, 2016. We’re pairing those show tickets with the best pizza in town — U.S. Pizza — and a $30 gift card to use while you’re there.

ABOUT THE SHOW: When it comes to this show, we’re biased because we think Belle is one of the best Disney princesses ever. Maybe it’s because she’s a book nerd, just like us. Maybe it’s that gorgeous yellow gown she wears. Maybe it’s because she sees the BeautyBeastbeauty in things and in people, even when they’re acting beastly.

I saw this Broadway musical with my daughter in 2010, the first time it came to Walton Arts Center. She was 4 years old at the time, and it was her very first trip to the theater. I will NEVER forget the look on her face when the curtain went up and one of her favorite movies came to life on stage with real people. For her, that moment was pure magic. She instantly became a theater lover, and she jumps at the chance to go back to Walton Arts Center to see another show. If your kids haven’t been to a show before, this is the perfect one to get them started.

The show is based on the Academy Award®-winning animated feature film, and it is an eye-popping spectacle that has won the hearts of more than 35 million people worldwide. This classic musical love story is filled with unforgettable characters, lavish sets and costumes, and dazzling production numbers including “Be Our Guest” and the beloved title song.

ABOUT THE FOOD: We love U.S. Pizza! It’s right on Dickson Street — just down the street from Walton Arts Center — USpizzaand they have parking right outside the doors. Of course, the pizzas/salads/sandwiches are amazing.

U.S. Pizza is seriously a Fayetteville legend and we know you’ll love it!

  43. The first time Belle and the Beast dance and realize they care about each other.

  44. I got to see the broadway production with Angela Landsbury and Tom Bosley several years ago. It was magical. My favorite scene is when she and the beast are dancing. Favorite song “Tale as old as time. I now have a granddaughter who is three her favorite princess is Bells so it would be great to take her,

  46. Be Our Guest is my favorite too! In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be stuck in my head all day now. Haha

  47. My daughter loves the “Mob Song” towards the end of the movie. I enjoy the part where the Beast’s heart changes toward Belle. He’s still a beast on the outside, but he’s a different person on the inside and she can see it. I can sit and think about that for hours.

  48. My husband sings “Gaston” all the time just to be silly so I’m partial to that song!

  52. My daughters are teens now and watch Once Upon a Time with me each week. Gaston appeared last week and we all had fun singing his song and remembering the movie. I would say his song is my favorite now because of the new memories. We are all huge Disney fans and would love the opportunity to see the musical. Thank you!

  53. My favorite scene is when Belle climbs the tower, and ultimately proves her love for Beast by risking her own life to save him. After all this was the only way for him to truly beliebe her devotion. It’s not what’s on the outside that counts. It ideas what one’s inner character show with actions, not qords.

  54. I love the message of this story! I love “Be Our Guest” and would love to see it at Walton Arts Center with my granddaughter!
