Giveaway: Tickets to A Great Big Miracle at SOPAC


Hanukkah begins on Wednesday, December 1 and we’ve got tickets to a fun, family show that will retell the story of the miracle of the oil. A Great Big Miracle is brought to you by the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) and Midtown Direct Rep:

A Great Big Miracle is Ben H. Winters’ smart, joyful, and just a little bit irreverent take on the story of Hanukkah. It’s got Judah Maccabee – the random shepherd who becomes a virtuous warrior, wicked King Antiochus and his really mean army. And yes, it’s got the whole candle and the eight nights thing. Narrated by a pair of Borscht Belt sheep, it’s the Hanukkah story like you’ve never seen it before!

Thanks to the generosity of SOPAC, Barista Kids has 4 tickets to give away to one lucky reader.

  1. My favorite part of Hanukkah is seeing my little kids’ faces light up when we turn off all of the lights and watch the blazing menorah candles. It’s the little things!

  2. #1 Fav is shopping to buy my wife a gift, in the ladies section & having weird women steal a glance at me. DO I LOOK LIKE A SIZE 7 ????????

  3. Fave part is putting up our tacky illuminated decorations with the kids. They think they are super classy and the envy of the neighborhood.

  4. My family – aunts & uncles, cousins, grandparents all get together at my Grandma’s house for a big party. My mother puts on the ugliest apron in the world and stands over 4 frying pans, but she can’t make latkes fast enough. The minute they’re out of the pan, they’re in a greedy little paw.

    Those new to the family sit politely in the next room, chatting, or doing something nice and are shocked later on to discover that they missed Latkepalooza. Those things never make it to the dining room.

  5. My favorite part is hiding the presents and playing “hot/cold” with my 3-year-old daughter. She does pretty well if the presents are mostly in plain sight!

  6. My favorite part is making latkes from scratch with my kids. They smell fabulous and taste even better! It’s a once-a-year treat.
