Giveaway! Sing Down the Moon: Appalachian Wonder Tales at Adventure Theatre

 

Adventure Theatre is bringing some toe-tapping, all-ages appealing, fun and enchanting entertainment to its stage.  Sing Down the Moon: Appalachian Wonder Tales opens this weekend, presenting four charming stories in one award-winning musical.  Even more, you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

Journey into the Appalachian Mountains in this award-winning musical that deftly weaves four traditional tales and original music into a keepsake quilt of mountain lore and wisdom for the whole family. Jack who lands himself a job despite his foolishness. “Catskins” is a spunky Appalachian Cinderella. “The Enchanted Tree” is a beauty-and-the-beast love story between a lost girl and a frightening crow. And in a zany, sung-through “Sow and Her Three Pigs” plucky Nancy the pig outsmarts the hungry fox. This play with music incorporates singing, mountain dances, music, and puppets to create a highly theatrical storytelling style. The score, which interweaves music throughout the tales, is inspired by “Old Time” Appalachian music featuring fiddle and banjo that drives the play’s action and makes music itself a character in the play.

Sing Down the Moon: Appalachian Wonder Tales is running April 26 – May 26 with performances both during the week and on weekends.  Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online. Of course, 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!
