Into the Woods will be released in theatres Dec. 25, 2014 but I’m giving away tickets to a special advance screening: four admissions to two families!

Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few of the best-known stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. It follows the tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), and their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Take a gander at the trailer right here!

Would you like to win? Please take note of a few details before putting your name down.

  • These tickets are for the Ottawa screening, which is taking place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17 at SilverCity Gloucester. Please don’t enter if you aren’t sure if you can make it!
  • This is important: this film is recommended for children age 10 and over.
  • To enter, all you need to do is leave a note in the comments below.
  • For a bonus entry, leave a comment on this Facebook post.
  • I’ll do a random draw from all the comments at noon on December 12. I’ll announce the winners here and via email, at which point I’ll forward electronic passes to the two winners. (Each winner will receive passes to admit for people to the film, just so we’re clear.)

If bait paste hardens, replace with fresh paste from fridge.
The active ingredient in the most of the highly effective chalk and powdred insecticide formulas is Boric Acid.
These insects inhibit on food and moisture, so they’re often found in the kitchen and bathroom.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
