GIVEAWAY: Win tickets to see WTT’s “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” Thursday

WaterTower Theatre’s new production of the jukebox musical Smokey Joe’s Cafe officially opens tonight, and you can see it this week … for free! We have two pairs of tickets to give away for Thursday’s performance. It starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Addison Theatre Centre, and we have the tickets here for ya. Simply email by 11 a.m. tomorrow, and on Tuesday around noon, I’ll randomly pick the winners. Then all you have to do is stop by the Voice offices before Thursday and enjoy a night of the music of Leiber and Stoler.

WaterTower offers wine-and-theater package

It’s a little late to get started now — the first one was last night — but if you like theater and booze (and who doesn’t?) you can combine your passions at WaterTower Theatre.

The Addison company is offering a three-show series that includes tickets to select Wednesday night performances (June 6 for Boeing-Boeing and Aug. 1 for Smokey Joe’s Cafe still remain) and a pre-show wine tasting. The cost was $135 for all three shows, but WaterTower presumable has a system in place for two of three shows, as well as for those who are already subscribers. Call 972-450-6232 to find out.

While you’re at it, tell them they may wanna change the company name to WineTower Theatre. Could work.
