(Updated) Instagram photo contest: Win tickets to ‘Lion King’

Enter by posting an animal from your own “savannah” on Instagram

UPDATE: Congratulations to randomly selected winner Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young! She receives a four-pack of tickets to the closing weekend of Children’s Musical Theaterworks production of “Disney’s Lion King, Jr.”

As promised, here’s a menagerie of contest entries, starting with Dorina’s. (They are all so sweet. I wish I could have given tickets to each and every entrant.)

A sample of other entries (I couldn’t get the embed coding to work on all of them, sorry):

ORIGINAL POST: At $15 a ticket, prices for the new Children’s Musical Theaterworks production of “Disney’s Lion King, Jr.” are very reasonable. (In fact, Disney insists upon it.)

You know what’s even better than $15?

To celebrate CMT’s impressive summer season (which includes two local community theater premieres in a row), The Munro Review is giving away a family four-pack of tickets for a closing-weekend performance. Here’s the wrinkle: The actual contest is on Instagram.

If you’re our winner, you have a choice of attending one of these performances: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11; 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12; or 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12.


“The Lion King” is all about the animals. Now I doubt that anyone reading this post lives on a savannah. However, most all of you have one or more animals in your life whom you love. To enter this contest, you’ll need to take a picture of your favorite animal. (By the way, you get to define “animal,” so if you don’t have a pet handy, get creative.)
