Contest Alert! Win Tickets when The Kennedy Center Brings a YA Favorite to the Stage!

We love to see our favorite YA adapted for the big screen, but it might be even more exciting to have it brought to life in front of you on the stage! This spring that very thing is happening as the Kennedy Center presents an adaptation of Crazy by Han Nolan with its production of Jason Invisible!

The Kennedy Center describes the play:

Being a teenager is hard. Being one who needs to care for a sick parent is even harder. It makes 15-year-old Jason feel like he's going a little bonkers. What makes things tougher are the "sidekicks" in his head--Dream Girl, Smart Guy, and Crazy Glue--who bear a striking resemblance to the kids in his new support group. But Jason doesn't want to talk to anyone. He'd rather just be invisible, until his anonymous letter in the school paper leads other students with troubled home lives to seek HIS words of wisdom. Suddenly, Jason's advice column is helping him face down his own problems--and find new friends in the most unlikely of places.

Based on a novel by National Book Award winner Han Nolan, this highly theatrical play is at turns warm, humorous, and deeply moving--even interactive with the audience, so that more voices can be heard! Don't miss this groundbreaking world premiere, which celebrates the awesome power of friendship and humanizes young people dealing with less than perfect families. For ages 11 and up.
We are really excited to be able to offer two tickets to the March 30th matinee to one lucky reader!  
Simply comment on this post with your name & email BEFORE 9 PM on SUNDAY, MARCH 24 and we will randomly choose one of the entrees to win the pair of tickets!

Thanks to the Kennedy Center for making this give-away possible! Be sure to check out all the info about the play, which runs from March 23- April 7 on their website.
