I’ve got another Amazing holiday experience giveaway!
This one is going to be FAST because it’s tickets to Centerstage Theatre’s Aladdin in Federal Way this Friday the 20th at 7PM.
This isn’t Disney’s Aladdin-it’s a fast-paced, laugh out loud version in the tradition of English pantomime (This means it’s funny and full of satire and puns-it’s not a silent mime-I promise)!
My family and I had the opportunity to go, and we absolutely loved it. In fact, both the boys were talking about it for days afterwards, which is a Big deal with my hard-to-impress 10 year old. They loved the bad jokes and the audience participation (Henry was bouncing up and down on his seat every time he got to boo the villain)! If you’ve been wanting to do a holiday show but traditional ballets and sweeter shows aren’t the ticket for your family, this is a great alternative. You can even take pictures with the cast afterwards!
You should know that this production is about laughs-and lots of them! Some of the gags are definitely PG 13, but they’re written so that they’ll go right over your kids’ heads. Alan, the artistic director, likes to say, they’re ,”Naughty but not nasty.” My boys didn’t get any of them, and Alan says he hasn’t had a complaint in all the years they’ve been staging these shows. But….in the interest of full disclosure, you should know to expect plenty of sexual innuendo, potty humor, a vomit joke, and a skit with the Village People. One of the main characters (and a total scene stealer) is also a man playing a woman. I didn’t see anyone in the place bothered by any of it, and the audience was made up of folks from 3 to 83, but if you would be…well, just sit on your hands and enter another contest instead!
Centerstage is an award winning theater company, and their performers are professional actors and actresses from around the country. You didn’t know you could find first rate theater in Federal Way? Now you do! I know my kids have already asked if we can go to next year’s holiday show.
If you’d like to take your fun loving crew to Aladdin, I have TWO family packs of 5 tickets each to give away! Woot!
Before you enter, I want you to make sure you can attend the show this Friday the 20th at 7PM. All their other times are sold out! I also want you to make sure to leave an email you’re going to check. I’m going to select a winner at 9PM Thursday night, and I’ll need to hear from you by 9AM Friday morning (preferably sooner).
