Cincinnati Ballet’s Alice (in wonderland) Ticket Giveaway

alice

It’s always tea time in wonderland. Everyone is invited to tea with Alice in wonderland! When guests reach the bottom of the rabbit hole, they should promptly follow the White Rabbit (he’s got a very important date). He will escort them to the tea party, where they will be greeted by various guests. Don’t feel obliged to answer the Mad Hatter when he asks why a raven is like a writing desk (unless you know the answer). Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are sure to fly by and the Cheshire Cat is slated to make an appearance, but you never know when he’ll disappear. Guests do not want to offend the Red Queen or they might end up losing their heads!

Willy Wonka Jr. Coming to Cincinnati

bob herzog willy wonka

Most of us know Roald Dahl’s timeless story of the world-famous candy man and his quest to find an heir. But it’s not everyday we get to watch it come to life in this stage adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features the songs from the classic family film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka JR. featuring a memorable score by Leslie Bricusse (Jekyll & HydeDoctor Dolittle) and Anthony Newley, follows enigmatic candy manufacturer Willy Wonka as he stages a contest by hiding five golden tickets in five of his scrumptious candy bars. Whoever comes up with these tickets will win a free tour of the Wonka factory, as well as a lifetime supply of candy. Four of the five winning children are insufferable brats: the fifth is a likeable young lad named Charlie Bucket who takes the tour in the company of his equally amiable grandfather. The children must learn to follow Mr. Wonka’s rules in the factory–or suffer the consequences.

Bob Herzog, Local 12 News Anchor/Reporter and inventor of Dance Party Friday, will play Willy Wonka. I love this story anyway but Bob Herzog as Willy Wonka makes it so much more exciting!

Tickets start at $11 each. Public performance times include:

Friday, April 4 at 7:30 PM
Saturday, April 5 at 2 PM
Saturday, April 5 at 5 PM
Sunday, April 6 at 2 PM
Saturday, April 12 at 2 PM
