Giveaway: Fun & Antics with The Cat in the Hat at Adventure Theatre this Summer!


Dr. Seuss is a big part of many a kid’s childhood (and our adulthood as we read his beloved books to our children). So, when an adaption of one his classics comes to a local stage, that’s a show the whole family can enjoy together. You can do that this summer as Adventure Theatre presents The Cat in the Hat. Based on the book that is a favorite of many, the show will delight audiences from June 21 – August 18. Even more, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

From the moment his tall, red-and-white-striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that the cat in the hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he is certainly fun to play with. And he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mom find when she gets home…?

The Cat in the Hat can turn one of your afternoons (or evenings) into an amazing adventure, too! With weekday and weekend performances, tickets are $20 and available for purchase online or at the Box Office — I recommend getting them in advance, as shows could sell out. Of course, you can also try to win them through the giveaway below.

Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to Winnie the Pooh at Adventure Theatre!


Get ready for a gang of beloved animals friends to liven up Adventure Theatre this season. Winnie the Pooh will bring fun and antics to the stage from March 30 to May 26, and I’ve got a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it for one lucky KFDC reader!

Based on the book by A.A. Milne, this production was adapted for the stage by le Clanché du Rand. Winnie the Pooh would spend every day of life humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat “a little something.” But today, Pooh and Piglet have to find the Heffalump, watch Rabbit scheme to rid the forest of Kanga’s dreaded bathtub, and help Eeyore search for his tail. Pooh’s intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble.

We actually saw a version of this at Adventure Theatre several years ago, and you can read a review here. (Note that the director and cast are different, but the story is the same.)

Tickets for Winnie the Pooh are $20 and can be purchased online or at the Box Office, though I always recommend getting them in advance because shows often sell out. Of course, you can also try to win them through the giveaway below.

Giveaway: Journey Down Huckleberry Finn’s Big River at Adventure Theatre!



A literary classic is coming to Adventure Theatre’s stage this winter. Huckleberry Finn’s Big River is a world-premiere adaptation of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that celebrates the glorious richness of our world by cultivating equity, diversity, and inclusivity.

With the support of over 100 consensus organizers (individuals and organizations serving the black community), this revision of the Tony-winning Broadway musical will lift your spirit. Recommended for all ages, the small-cast, hour-long version of Mark Twain’s novel removes offensive language and expands the role of Jim, now the same age as Huck.

Touching and timeless, this tale of friendship against all odds is recreated for young audiences as two best friends demonstrate the power of changing the world.

Huckleberry Finn’s Big River is running at Adventure Theatre February 8 – March 10. Tickets are $20 and available for purchase online. Don’t miss the chance to win a Family 4-Pack through the giveaway below!
