Every year, Aurora Theatre strives to bring the spirit of the season to thousands with numerous holiday performances. However, some people cannot afford to have their spirits lifted through the joy of live theatre because of their current financial situations. Do you know someone who just lost their job or have a friend who is a single parent struggling to keep it together for the holidays? If you know someone who could use some extra cheer this time of year nominate them for Aurora’s Need a Little Christmas Giveaway and they just might receive a well-deserved night of food and fun courtesy of Aurora Theatre and participating restaurant partners.
Grand Prize Winners will receive 4 tickets to a performance of Christmas Canteen 2013 and a meal at McCray’s Tavern, La Cazuela Mexican Restaurant or Blue Rooster Bake Shop & Eatery. Runners-up will receive a family 4-pack of tickets to attend an Aurora Children’s Playhouse performance this December. Tell Aurora Theatre, in 300 words or less, why you think someone Needs a Little Christmas to nominate a friend in need of holiday cheer. Entries must be received by 4pm on December 3, 2013.
