Magik Theatre kicks of their 20th year with a special Willy Wonka event! - Family Love In My City

Magik Theatre kicks of their 20th year with a special Willy Wonka event!

Monday, September 30, 2013

We have been great big fans of children's live theatre ever since we saw The Backyardigan's Live! It is one of the best perks of being a parent, being able to experience children's theatre. Sometimes we are seeing it for the first time as a parent, with our own children! When the lights are dimmed, there is nothing like getting lost in the story, then hearing the laughter from the kids! It's what gets me the most.

This year, the Magik Theatre's 2013-2014 season will include Willy Wonka, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, Skippy Jon Jones, Llama Llama, Pinocchio, The Bootmaker and the Elves and Shrek! 

The season kicks off with a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket Night with 5 lucky winners of some awesome prizes, including free tuition to 2013 Camp Showbiz, paid Spring Acting & Creativity Academy tuition, a 2013-2014 season pass, free concessions for a year, and a backstage tour led by Willy Wonka immediately following the show!

Willy Wonka Golden Ticket Night
When: Friday, October 11, 2013 at 6 p.m.
We’re kicking off the season right with unlimited popcorn, drinks and a Wonka bar for everyone who walks in the door. Will you win one of the five coveted golden tickets?
Price: Tickets are $20 each or $15 for season pass holders

Willy Wonka
When: October 11 – November 9
When Willy Wonka’s hallowed chocolate factory holds a worldwide contest awarding tours to the lucky, five children emerge as winners. Only Charlie Bucket, the story’s earnest hero, stands to win the exotic riches of Wonka’s empire if he avoids the pitfalls of his fellow contestants and stays true to his heart. 
Price: General Admission Adult/Children (2-17 years) $10 
$1 off discount for Senior (60+)/Educator withVALID ID
Military $9.00 (Active Duty Personnel w/ID)

And then... to say goodbye to the cast and crew going on a National Tour of Splat the Cat, the Magik Theatre is showing a special, and free, performance of the show!

Splat the Cat
When: Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 6 p.m.
Venue: The Magik Theatre 420 S. Alamo
Free showing of “Splat the Cat” before it heads out on national tour. Splat is nervous for his first day at Cat School, but after a day of fun adventures, he can’t wait to go back! Enjoy this free performance and say bon voyage to the cast and crew before they take this show on a national tour.
Price: FREE

We have read this book many times when the kids were a bit younger, and giggled and giggled in bed as Splat makes his way to school for the first time. 

This is a first-come, first-serve event, and capacity is 600 people. It also is on Downtown Tuesday, which allows FREE parking in city owned lots and garages after 5pm!


So, there you have it! I hope to see you out there!
