Congratulations to our winners-Lory and Marybell, whose comments were selected by the random number generator!
Many thanks to everyone who entered. If you didn’t win, the show runs through the end of this month, and there are still tickets available. I’ve heard from readers who have already gone that it’s adorable!
I do have more great giveaways coming soon, and your interest in these contests really does help me bring them to you, so thanks!
Marybell and Lory, I’ve sent you each an email. I do need to hear back from you within 24 hrs.
If someone at your house loves tea parties and dress-up, have I got the show for you. It’s the world premiere of Tea For Ruby from our friends at Evergreen City Ballet. Adapted from the book by Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, with illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser of Fancy Nancy fame, this ballet is totally kid friendly and cuter than a crumpet. Costumed dancers come in the lobby after each performance, so don’t forget your camera! There are shows in Bellevue (Robin Preiss Glasser will be signing books at these performances), Renton, and Auburn, beginning March 2nd and running through the 30th. Here’s a bit more about the show from our ECB friends.
Before there was Fancy Nancy, there was Ruby!
Ruby gets a princess-worthy lesson on manners in this charming world-premiere ballet adapted from the picture book from #1 New York Times best-selling, Fancy Nancy illustrator, Robin Preiss Glasser and author Sarah Ferguson, The Duchess of York.
Ruby does her best to have good manners – yet no matter her efforts, she just can’t seem to succeed. But when Ruby receives a mysterious surprise invitation to tea with the Queen, she is especially determined to polish her poise. Will she ever manage to be proper in time for tea at the palace?
But, wait….I mentioned a giveaway!
Hold on to the china, because I’ve got TWO sets of FOUR tickets to Tea For Ruby in Auburn, Saturday March 30th at 1:30 or 5PM (the winners even get to pick their show time)!
