Kirkwood Knittery and Peabody Opera House have teamed up to bring you a theater & fiber experience! Flashdance The Musical will run at the Peabody from January 8-13th. All the music you loved from the movie will be onstage, plus 16 more songs to get your feet moving with the music.
And to keep those muscles warm, we’re having a Legwarmers Contest. Prizes will be awarded for every entry received, including a discount on tickets to see the show. Grand Prizes will be awarded for Best Legwarmers, and for Best FlashYarnBomb Photo.
All handmade legwarmers are eligible for the grand prize: knit, crochet, weave, quilt or sew your legwarmers, in any size from doll to giant. Purchased garments are welcome for donation to our mitten tree project, and will receive the entry prize package.
(The heroine of the show is in the construction business. That has no bearing on this contest, except that we’re still under construction, too! The opportunity to bring this to you all came up just last week, but we didn’t want to take away any more time from your knitting while we finalized all the tiny details. We’ll post additional details, prizes and information here, on Facebook and on Ravelry as they develop.)
Pin legwarmers together, and label with your name, phone number, and email address. Add the word “donate” to the label if you wish to include your entry in our mitten tree project benefiting Crisis Nursery. Drop off legwarmers at Kirkwood Knittery by 5pm January 2, 2013.
Email or upload your FlashYarnBomb photo to Robyn@kirkwoodknittery.com. Please include the location of the photo and the date taken, along with your name, phone number and email address. Deadline is 5pm January 2, 2013.
Enter as many times as you wish. For each entry you will receive a 20-25% discount coupon for tickets to see Flashdance The Musical, 25% off your next purchase at Kirkwood Knittery, and 20% off your next haircut at Hair Theatre. Additional prizes may be added, so check our Facebook page for updates!
Grand prize package includes tickets for 4 people to see the show, and a backstage Meet & Greet with the cast, along with some fabulous yarn from the Skacel Collection (used to create our sample pair), a free haircut from Hair Theatre, Show off your flashy feet, maniac mullet, and steely stitching along with fellow theater-goers!
Grand Prize Winners will be notified on January 5, 2013. By entering this contest, you give permission to share your name, and a photo of your entry with Peabody Opera House, Flashdance the Musical, Kirkwood Knittery, and other partners for promotional use in print, video and electronic media.
