Being raised in a home where Mel Brooks is regarded as a National Treasure, one of my earliest media memories is of watching Young Frankenstein, particularly the “Puttin’ on the Ritz” scene. So I’m pretty excited that Young Frankenstein has been made into a stage musical, and will be coming to the Kennedy Center starting December 15th and running all the way to January 10th.
But I’m even MORE excited that we’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away. But it won’t be through blog comments this time… this is a Twitter contest.
Here’s the deal: Between now and December 28th, you need to follow both @welovedc and @YFTour, and tweet about the musical, mentioning both @welovedc, @YFTour, and the hashtag #ItsALIVE. The mentions and the hashtag make sure all the DC tweets get entered in the DC contest, and following both twitter accounts means we’ll be able to notify the winner by Twitter direct message, so all those steps are important. So for example:
I want @YFTour & @welovedc to send me to see ‘Young Frankenstein’ at the Kennedy Center! #ItsALIVE http://bit.ly/7zyfqN
The first winner will be chosen on Friday, December 18th. The second will be chosen on Monday, December 28th. If you win, you’ll be contacted through Twitter direct message. We’ll try to accommodate your choice of show date, but please note that the production can’t guarantee that there will be seats available for your first choice, so try to be flexible.
