Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to Singin’ in the Rain at Olney Theatre!


Singin’ in the Rain is the perfect show for the whole family to see this holiday season. Kids will love the slapstick humor, high-energy tap dancing, and live rain on stage. Grownups will swoon to the story of romance and 1920s Hollywood glamour along with classic songs like “Good Morning,” “Moses Supposes,” and of course, “Singin’ in the Rain.” Don’t miss this opportunity to give your kids a theatrical experience they’ll never forget. This holiday season, make sure it rains!

About the production
In the Heights Director/Choreographer Marcos Santana returns to Olney Theatre Center with another classic American musical! Comden and Green’s ingenious tale of Hollywood’s transition from the silent era is buoyed by the thrill of live singing and dancing to some of the greatest songs in the American canon. OTC’s biggest production of the year is certain to impress Broadway regulars and enchant kids with live rain on stage.

“A crowd pleasing revival…with triple threat stars.”
The Washington Post


Singin’ in the Rain is now running at Olney Theatre Center through January 5, 2020. Tickets are $54-$99 and can be purchased online or through the Box Office (301.924.4485). (Look for discounts here.) You can also try winning a Family 4-Pack to the performance on December 31, 2019 at 2pm through the giveaway below!

One Warm Coat
When you go to see Singin’ in the Rain, bring a new or gently used coat to donate! For too many people in our community, rain is nothing to sing or dance about. They lack a seasonally appropriate warm coat to protect them from wind, rain and snow. In the spirit of the holiday season, Olney Theatre Center is partnering with One Warm Coat to organize a coat drive during the run of Singin’ In The Rain. All sizes of new or gently used warm coats will be collected and distributed by Interfaith Works to members of the community in need.

Giveaway: Two Ways to Win Tickets for The Velveteen Rabbit at Adventure Theatre!


Adventure Theatre MTC is about kick off their world premiere production of The Velveteen Rabbit that will run through the holiday season. And just like all of the shows at the playhouse in Glen Echo Park, you have a chance to win tickets to see it. This time, though, there are a couple of ways to win — and (sort of) be part of show!

Patrick Flynn’s adaption of The Velveteen Rabbit, based on the book by Margery Williams, offers local audiences a chance to see love rise from the ashes and come alive in this new play. When the Child gets the Rabbit for Christmas, she is at first disappointed in her gift. But as the two quest and adventure through her storybooks, both Rabbit and Child grow and care for each other. And they discover that love is the greatest force in the Universe and can make impossible things Real.

This wintry show about friendship, imagination, and second chances runs November 15, 2019 through January 1, 2020 and is recommended for all ages. Tickets are $20.50 and can be purchased online or by calling 301.634.2270.

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.
