See also

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.
