Giveaway: Tickets to see The Moon’s a Balloon at WAC


Happy Monday, mamas!  Today we’re giving away 4 tickets to see the kid’s show The Moon’s a Balloon at Walton Arts Center on April 28th!

A balloon can be a friend to play with or a maker of friendships. It can hold its breath for days and disappear in an instant. It can make your hair stand on end and fill you with laughter. A balloon can be something loved or something lost; something shared or something broken. Is the moon a balloon? It can be. A balloon can be anything you want it to be.

ABOUT THE SHOW: The Moon’s a Balloon was inspired by a poem by ee cummings which suggests that amazing possibilities can come from the simplest of things. The Moon’s a Balloon is a visual-theater production that celebrates the possibilities of play, the making of friendships and the wonder of creation. One of the underlying themes of the show is that all sorts of possibilities reside in the simplest of things.

Simple white balloons, two performers and a musician can, through exploration, play and a search for meaning, give rise to a rich variety of composition, beauty, laughter, wonder, joy and story. Best for ages 4+

  1. My daughter always talks about the 100 fairies that live in her room. Her favorite fairy is Periwinkle and if she gets in trouble for doing something, she almost always blames it on Periwinkle! She’ll often say that Periwinkle is sitting in my hair or on my shoulder, as well. So funny!

  2. My son once threw one of my bras over his shoulder and said, “Look Mom! I’m a camel!” Hilarious!

  3. My kids love to pretend they are little mommies and they go to the store, and lunch around the house. Just like mommy!

  4. My son is special needs and is in a wheelchair..he pretends to be a fish..a airplane..he pretends quite a bit

  5. My daughter LOVES pretending to be a puppy!! Her birthday is coming up and this would be so much fun!

  6. My daughter has played a big sister, mama, puppy, and chef. I love watching her play, her imagination is endless.
