Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to “Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas” at Adventure Theatre!



It’s almost the holiday season, and Adventure Theatre is getting into the spirit with a new show that brings an adored children’s book character to life on stage. Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas will be a perfect holiday entertainment for the whole family — and you have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets to see it!

What could be fancier than Christmas? Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles-and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel. Oohlala! This year, Nancy is especially excited. After selling some of her old gowns and accessories, Nancy has enough money to buy a brand-new sparkly tree topper. She can’t wait to decorate the Christmas tree. But when things don’t turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas opens November 16, 2018 and runs through January 6, 2019. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online or at the Box Office. You can also try winning them through the giveaway below!

* Craft a glamorous glitter ornament with your name on it
* Enjoy caroling with friends from Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas
* Decorate delicious Christmas sugar cookies with delectable frosting
* Have your holiday family photo taken

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.

See ‘Tinker Bell’ Light Up the Adventure Theatre Stage this Summer (Giveaway!)



Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan. Or, at least, everyone thinks they do. But unless you have heard it from Tinker Bell’s point of view, you really have not heard it at all.

In Tinker Bell, a world premiere play running at Adventure Theatre this summer, a new twinkling light shines on all the characters you love, including Wendy, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Smee, and the nefarious Hook from a feisty fairy’s point of view. Based on the works of Sir J. M. Barrie and adapted for the stage by Patrick Flynn, the all-ages production is sure to delight theatre-goers young and young-at-heart.

Tinker Bell opens June 22 and will run through August 19. Tickets are $19.50, and you also have a chance to win a Family 4-Pack through the giveaway below!
