I’ve got an amazing giveaway for you all today — tickets to see Aladdin Jr performed by The Children’s Theatre ofScreenshot 2015-04-02 01.29.22 Cincinnati!

This show is near and dear to our hearts this year…you see, I live with The Genie and Jafar. Well, in a manner of speaking, anyway. Our school’s drama club is performing Aladdin Kids this year and my oldest son is playing Genie, youngest is playing Jafar. I’ll be really honest, it’s one of my favorite movies too, and near and dear to my heart is Robin William’s portrayal of Genie. To say we were excited about performing in this play is an understatement. To get to see it performed by Bob Herzog and the talented actors of The Children’s Theatre is a dream come true!

Here’s more about the show from The Children’s Theatre:

Everyone’s favorite characters are here in this stage adaptation of the Disney hit, including Aladdin, Jasmine Genie and Aladdin Children's Theatre 2015Jasmine, and of course, the Genie. Filled with magic, mayhem, and flying carpet rides, spirits will soar with excitement! This show will feature an onstage collaboration with The Cincinnati Circus Company– bringing jugglers, aerial acrobats, stilt walkers and more to the Taft Theatre stage!  The Disney version of Aladdinwas last produced by The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati in 2006, but the Aladdin story has a long history performed five other times:  in 1949, 1958, 1968, 1975 and 1986.

It’s no wonder we are so excited — doesn’t this look amazing?

To enter to win just answer the following question:

If you had a magical power what would it be?

If I could choose it would be to enchant household cleaning items to work on their own, sort of like the mops in Fantasia.  I’m pretty sure it would just end up being the ability to clone myself when cleaning anything.  Handy, but just not as “magical” as I’d like.  What about you?
