goodnight moon, the musical giveaway!

as i have said before, i love to expose my kids to culture in a way that is positive and encouraging, as well as age-appropriate.  that way when they are adults, they will treat bill and me to all kinds of cultural experiences as a result of their undying gratitude to us!
if you are in the chicago area and have been considering taking your kids to see goodnight moon, the musical, i have some really good news. i am giving away four tickets to see the show!

here are the nitty-gritty details:  if (and only if, this is important), you are available to see the show on sunday, november 13 at 3 pm, leave a comment for me below, telling me what your favorite childhood story is.  i will choose a winner on tuesday, november 8, 2011 (us residents only, must be 18 to enter).  if you cannot make the show at that date and time, the box office will be unable to exchange your tickets...

...however, if you are unable to make that date and time, but still want to see the show, you can use the code "RED BALLOON" to get $5 off per ticket, to any performance, whether you purchase them online, via phone (773.871.3000) or in person (2433 north lincoln avenue | chicago, il 60614) at the victory gardens box office.

i do hope you will join us in seeing the show.  i am sure your kids will be so glad you did!

we received 4 free tickets to the show, as well as four to give away, from the chicago children's theatre.  regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are purely my own.


  1. I always loved Pippi Longstocking. Gabriel really, really loves Goodnight Moon, so I would have to manage to take the kids myself even though Jacob will be out of town that day.

  2. What first comes to mind is "the Secret Garden". My sister and I were obsessed - with the book and the hallmark movie. But then there is Nancy Drew. I read them all. I have them all. I just have to wait a few more years to share them with my kids, I think. :) My mom used to read them to us and all the other kids on our summer vacation and she would make Nancy, Bess, and George stop for diet cokes and salads instead of burgers and milkshakes.
