dramagenics tickets giveaway

CORRECT ORANGE2

For a while now we've been going on date night to see this improv group out west, The Mixed Nuts they call themselves, or Dramagenics. It' s clean family humor-they never let the topic get even PG really, which is just refreshing and fun.

They take odd-ball suggestions from the audience and come up with on-the-spot skits and games that just leave the audience rolling. Some of my favorites they do are the Blind date game, Da-Doo-Run-Run-Run song, Party Quirks, and lately my newest favorite, Heckler. Every show they'll bring an audience member or two up on the stage and have fun with them or have them participate in skits. (See Danny doing the statue game with them last year here!)

Dramagenics, located in Peoria, is one-of-a-kind entertaiment (especially out here on the west side) that I'm really trying to support and rally behind. Cost for most shows is $12 but every now and then they'll give out coupons or offer 2-for-1 discounts. The shows go about an hour and a half to 2 hours or so.

Although I took my 9 year old this last time and he did enjoy himself, I did have to keep explaining the jokes and why certain things were funny. I only say that to promise that it's OK to take your kids, but they may not get it. They'll still have fun laughing, though they may not know why!

Now, the giveaway!!

The troupe has been kind enough to donate 4 free tickets for a giveaway on my blog!

Enter by leaving a comment on this post. I'll pick two winners, (local participants only please) each receiving 2 free admission tickets to a future show. Please have your entries in by Sunday the 28th at midnight so I can choose random winners Monday morning and post the winner's names at that time. Please leave a working email for me to contact you as well. (Much thanks to my new bff Brian K. for helping me organize this. You da man, B!)

So, in short, support Dramagenics even if you don't win this giveaway, and if you're local, please attend a show and get as hooked as we are. You won't regret it!

It's been a blast everytime we go. We need to go more often. I hope everyone supports them and keeps stuff like this in the West Valley.

I had a blast when we went and I'm sure that the show we paid for but never made it to in May was hilarious too. Hopefully I win so DJ can finally go!
