I love the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC). It’s an incredible live entertainment center in downtown Durham that hosts over 200 performances a year. There is truly something for everyone. I’ve been to a wide range of shows here from ballet to live podcast recordings to Broadway shows. One thing that I have not done quite yet is seen one of the performances geared towards children. Since I now have a toddler, Noah, who can appreciate this, I am excited to take him to check out one of these shows.
Our friends at the DPAC are hosting this weeks ‘Pick Your Show’ giveaway and are generously offering prizes to TWO winners. Each winner will receive a family four pack of tickets to the Kids Series show of their choosing. What shows do you get to pick from?

Alright, so you figured out what show you want to see? We’re going to Daniel Tiger. Because not only is Noah obsessed with the show and the owner of a small Daniel Tiger stuffed animal, he also frequently tries to walk around in a shirt but no pants so he is clearly a super fan (or a method actor). Enter to win tickets in the Rafflecoptor widget below. This giveaway will run until Sunday night (8/28) and the winner will be announced in the widget by Monday morning (8/29).
