Enter for a Chance to Win Tickets to Junie B. Jones, The Musical at Adventure Theatre!

 

A beloved children’s book character is coming to the Adventure Theatre stage, as Junie B. Jones, The Musical opens this weekend and runs through March 30.  Even better, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

It is Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, does not want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting. Featuring a tremendously loveable character and fun-filled songs, Junie B. Jones will capture your audience members’ hearts just as the books captivated an entire generation of students.

Tickets for Junie B. Jones, The Musical are $25 and can be purchased online.  You can also try to win them through the giveaway below.

Ticket Giveaway: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe at Adventure Theatre!

 

As you’re making plans for the holiday season, here’s one to include on your family’s agenda:  Adventure Theatre’s unique production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  Opening November 17 and running through January 7, the show is sure to delight audiences of all ages!

In this two-person version of the classic tale, Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy discover a secret portal to a magical world called Narnia. With an evil White Witch ruling the kingdom, can Lucy, her new friend Mr. Tumnus, and her family band together to save this land from the eternal winter? 

The kids and I saw Adventure Theatre’s magical version of the show several years ago, and I’ve been told it’s the same, just with different actors.  We loved it then — you can read my review of it here.

Tickets for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe are $25 and available for purchase online. You can also try to win a Family 4-Pack through the giveaway!

Adventure Theatre Starts a New Season with “Blueberries for Sal” and a Ticket Giveaway!



Adventure Theatre has impeccable timing. Just as we officially welcome fall this weekend, they are beginning a whole new season of children’s theatre on their stage in Glen Echo Park. And they are starting it off with a show based on a beloved classic perfect for this time of year: Blueberries for Sal.

Robert McCloskey’s story about a little girl and her mother going blueberry picking as a mama bear and its cub gather berries on the other side of the hill in preparation for hibernation has been adored by readers for 70 years. Adventure Theatre is celebrating the anniversary with this world premiere production, a musical that is a heartwarming mother-child tale to which parents and grandparents alike will relate. (And the score is by the same composer who did Caps for Sale in 2016!)

Blueberries for Sal opens at Adventure Theatre September 21 and runs through October 21. Tickets are $20, but this Friday’s opening show is a Pay-What-You-Can performance with free milk and cookies (cash only at the door)! Tickets can be purchased online or at the Box Office. Recommended for all ages.
