Giveaway: Young Frankenstein + Powerhouse food!

Note from the mamas: Congratulations, Corbett Warren! You won the Young Frankenstein tickets and dinner at Powerhouse 🙂

If you’ve been hoping to sit down just for a few minutes this holiday season, we’ve got a giveaway that will help you relax — AND make you laugh hysterically.

The New Mel Brooks Musical Young Frankenstein, a new musical comedy from the creative team of the 12-time Tony® Award winning smash The Producers, is coming to Walton Arts Center’s Baum Walker Hall for eight performances Tuesday, December 14 through Sunday, December 19.

We’ve got TWO tickets to give away to one lucky mama — and her equally lucky date — for the Tuesday, Dec. 14, show at 7 p.m.

You’ll be able to sit down in a restaurant, too! A yummy restaurant. Powerhouse Seafood and Grill near Walton Arts Center will be your dinner date destination!!!

ABOUT THE SHOW: Based on the Oscar®-nominated smash hit 1974 film, Young Frankenstein is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead  and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?

Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”

ABOUT THE FOOD: Powerhouse is a locally owned restaurant just off Dickson St. that’s known for its delicious seafood and steaks. They also have lobster, crab, chicken and pasta. Boarshead Pub is in the back of the restaurant and on nice days the patio is open for business. Fun place with yummy food!

  1. Last night our church had our annual Christmas pageant and some of the things that the little children do while on stage always make me laugh and put me in the holiday spirit!

  2. My four year old is our little comedian. She tells the worst knock knock jokes. They just kill us. We can’t help but laugh.

  3. This sign….

    Touching Wire Causes Instant Death
    $200 Fine

    Makes me wonder who actually printed it, and if questioned it at all.

  4. When telling my daughter that Santa is watching her and she needs to make good choices she tells me “mama! I can explain the choices that weren’t good and Santa will understand. I’m sure he has had to make bad choices too.” Too funny!

  5. Picking up my newborn son out of his swing and realizing that the diaper failed big time and poop was EVERYWHERE! I had to laugh thinking…thank GOD that the whole seat is removable AND washable!!!!!!

  6. GNO the other day and my friend got up to sing in her seat & when she went to sit back down she missed the seat…:)

  7. Watching holiday shoppers fight for the parking spots near the store. Have to laugh and wonder what is wrong with walking.

  8. The other night in the car my 6 year old daughter told my husband that he wasn’t a man, he was a dad. Then our 3 year old said she thought dad was a strange little man. Kid’s say the craziest things!

  9. My 4 year old son makes me laugh everyday. I never know what is going to come out of his mouth!!

  10. My sister sent me a video of my three year old nephew singing Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. He was belting in out in all his three year oldness and even threw his hands over his head for a giant finishing flourish. It was so funny and totally cute!!

  11. I asked my 2.5 yr old what he wanted from Santa. He said Candy? I said anything else? A present? A little present.

  12. My daughter saying the Pledge of Allegiance and saying “One nation, under dog, in-di-bisible, with liVerty and justice for all!” She’s so proud of it! 🙂

  13. My six and four-year-old give me BIG laughs everyday!! From breakfast to bedtime, they are usually nonstop.

  14. My 3 year old was giving me the 3rd degree for not putting the sticks of butter in the correct place in the refrigerator as she was putting them in the right place. Who knew she would be worried about the butter being in the wrong area

  15. My big laugh lately:

    We are potty training and working on # 2. The Schwanns man comes to the door as my little one runs away from me, pants down, to greet him ….saying…

    “I pooped in the potty! I’m a big boy!”

  16. My son is constantly making me laugh. The other day I overheard this:

    “Hi kitty… I know you want to be petted, but I’m in a meeting. A sword-fighting meeting.”

  17. My 3 year old son’s new favorite “toy” is a toy catalog…he clutches it to him while walking around, sleeps with it, “reads” it in the car, even brought it to Santa to show him the toys he’d like to have for Christmas. It is pretty funny how serious he is about that catalog!

  18. When my son says, “Mom, I have a good idea. Let’s eat ice cream!!!” Wow, what a great idea!!! Or when he comes and tells me, “My dad says I need a snack.” Funny little guy!

  19. This past week my 9 month old has started dancing everytime he hears music, even commericals! Talk about a momma laughing! And of course he thinks it’s so cool that we are laughing at him.

  20. I was getting my (9 month old) little girl dressed this morning and I decided she needed a different (warmer) outfit. so I left her in the living room in her diaper and went to her room for new clothes and when I came back out to the living room, She was standing there stark naked waving her diaper in the air like a flag with a huge grin on her face. 🙂

  21. I was out with a friend and her daughter today and laughed the morning away. My friend is very funny, I always have such a good time with her. : )

  22. My daughter said she wouldn’t like being a seal because they have to drag themselves everywhere they go. She always says hilarious things.
