[Edit: All & Final winners announced in the announcement post here !]
Hey, hey, hey! It’s almost that time, folks! Winter School Holidays! And if you’re anything like me then it’s actually that time when depsite all your best intentions to plan something epic to keep the kids busy over the break, you’re still here on the cusp of it all realizing you’ve done NOTHING! Well, fear not, Canal Walk always saves the day with their awesome theatre shows.
This time, its based on another real classic & one of my favourite childhood tales: The Little Mermaid! And I can tell you now, my kids are going to be stoked when I surprise them later today with their tickets! But what I’m even more excited to share with you is that not only am I – in conjunction with Canal Walk – giving away tickets to a family of four to go and enjoy the show…But I’m actually giving away TWO SETS of these four tickets! That’s right, TWO sets of four tickets each! But, more on that a bit later, so keep reading!
Moms, dads, we get how tricky it can be to keep the kids busy and engaged for an entire school break, especially the cold and wet days during the upcoming winter holidays. But you don’t have worry, this year, the watery adventure under the sea is an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of The Little Mermaid that is sure to keep the kids enthralled. Its a captivating story of curiosity,friendship and love that crosses all borders, and will feature a stand out cast, magnificent costumes, breath-taking sets and charmed puppets that will thrill the whole family in a magical musical makeover at this year’s Canal Walk Theatre.
What’s more, is that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Santa Shoebox Project as part of Canal Walk’s corporate social responsibility. The Santa Shoebox Project provides toys, toiletries, clothing, sweet treats and school supplies to underprivileged children. With over 2430 requests from organisations across South Africa and Namibia to the Project, theatre-goers will be playing their part in making sure that they spread a little love and happiness to those in need.
Which I think is pretty dang awesome – perfect entertainment for the kids while you are able to play a big role in spreading love, goodness and happy vibes to many in need all at the same time. As if you needed more reasons to get these tickets!
