Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to “The King’s Speech” at National Theatre!

It’s a giveaway for MLK Day! I have a pair of tickets up for grabs for The King’s Speech, coming to National Theatre February 11-16.

The King’s Speech is based on the true story of King George VI’s struggle with a speech impediment and the friendship he formed with his unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Logue. With the Nazi threat looming and civil unrest at home, royal secrets explode around the King as he’s thrust onto the world stage. David Seidler’s original play — which inspired the 2010 Oscar-winning film starring Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush – will make its long-awaited U.S. debut in a production The Mail proclaims “A right royal treat.”

This stage production is recommended for ages 13 and up. Tickets are $54-114, and you can look for a discount here. Of course, you can try to win them through the giveaway below.

You, Baby, & Colin Firth

Now that the Oscar nominees have been announced, you can start prioritizing your Netflix queue accordingly.   After all, you have merely weeks to view the expanded lot of 10 Best Picture contenders, and it’s not easy to get to the theater for a grown-up flick when you’ve got little ones in tow.

Unless, of course, you’re heading to E Street Cinema on a Wednesday morning when they present their Rattle & Reel screening. Tomorrow’s feature is The King’s Speech, which garnered loads of Oscar nominations (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, and like 18 more).  See the film, and you’ll bring a decent base of knowledge to your Oscar pool.

If you’re not familiar with the Rattle & Reel,  the program welcomes parents or caregivers to bring their babies to the movies, so you don’t have to worry about finding a sitter to enjoy the cinema. Read more about it here.  Tickets are the regular $8 admission.  Babies get in for free.
