Good things come to those who wait.

But, sometimes, they come to those who can act fast.

The NY Children's Theater Festival, which we've raved about three years in a row and gave away tickets for their first show of the season, has 4 last minute FREE tickets to give away to their production of Viva Pinocho! A Mexican Pinocchio! on Sunday May 4 at 2:00 PM.

This musical, one-man puppet show featuring puppeteer Dr. Manuel MorĂ¡n, tells the classic story in a new and exciting way, employing masks, black light, marionettes, shadow puppets, animation, direct manipulation puppets, and object puppetry. The production captures the charm of the original folktale and conveys a message of hope, family and love, using Mexican rhythms and styles of music. Plus, there's also a FREE meet and greet with the cast followed by refreshments, crafts and face-painting at 3 pm. So it's not just a show, it's a full afternoon of activities on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Enter to win the 4 FREE tickets by emailing with Viva Pinocho in the subject line. Winners will be drawn and notified on Friday, May 2.
