One of my favorite shows on Broadway right now is Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Sadly, the production will be closing on June 24th and in honor of it’s glorious run at the Palace, I have a Playbill signed by the entire cast to give away to one lucky winner. Please thank the amazing Ellyn Marsh [@ellynmarsh] for getting it for us!

Since it’s such a great prize, you’re going to have to work for it. I have some Priscilla trivia questions for you to answer. Each question you get right, gets you one entry. The bonus question gets you an additional entry ONLY if you get both answers correct.

To enter:

– Contest is open to anyone – not only US/Canada (yay!)

– Contest begins 6/18 and will run until 6/23 at 5pm eastern.

-Winner will be drawn and announced Sunday night to coincide with Priscilla’s final performance.

Ready? Here’s your questions!

1. Priscilla officially opened in Toronto on what date?

2. …and it played which theater in Toronto?

3. They make a pit stop on their way to Alice Springs and Felicia gets herself into some trouble. Name that dangerous town.

4. Name the actress that plays Cynthia in the film.

Good luck!

Time for another giveaway! I love to collect show flyers and I save a bunch to share with you. I also hang on to extra Playbills after I see shows. I’ve collected so much stuff to give away as prizes and I need to clear some of it out. You’ll get what you see here plus I might throw in some other small goodies I find. This is a simple RT to win contest. The best part? There will be 2 winners!

Each day I’ll post a tweet that you can RT for an entry. It will be posted at different times each day so be on the lookout!



– You must be following me at @bwaynews.

– You must live in the US/Canada. I simply can’t afford to mail things all over the world. Hopefully at some point that will change.

– One RT per person, per day.

Good luck!
