Off to See The Wizard

Hello Darlings,

From a young age, spending Sundays at the theatre was a big part of my life in Ukraine. When I moved to Toronto, the tradition continued seeing some of the most renowned plays and musicals on Mirvish stages including The Lion King, Mamma Mia,  Phantom of the Opera, and Priscilla: Queen of the Desert.

Congratulations to the winner Donny, who wrote “Warm weather and the new look Toronto Blue Jays season!”  I definitely agree on both things!!

wizard of oz

Last week, I had the best Valentine’s date seeing The Wizard of Oz with my mother! The show is a must-see, and thanks to Starwood Hotels and Mirvish Productions, one lucky reader will win their own amazing experience with 2 show tickets, hotel accommodations, among other amazing perks – see below to enter!

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a children’s novel written by American author L. Frank Baum. Published in 1900, Baum set out to write an original American fairy tale. The story of the young Dorothy in her ruby slippers and her precious dog Toto, starts in Kansas and travels to the Emerald City where she meets Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion. And as the story goes, on her colorful journey back to Kansas, she learns the true meaning of home!

Wizard of Oz Toronto

Coming from London, the North American premiere plays daily at Ed Mirvish Theatre in downtown Toronto until June 2nd. The set is remarkable and the costumes mesmerizing. Toto who was absolutely amazing, and the little guy stole the show at some points. I couldn’t stop smiling throughout and left with the warmest feeling.

Toronto Waterfront

Westin Harbour Castle and Sheraton Centre Toronto are exclusive hotels of Mirvish Productions, both offering special The Wizard of Oz packages. Westin Harbour Castle is on the waterfront with amazing views, and I spent an amazing weekend at the hotel in fall 2011. Sheraton Centre Toronto is in the heart of downtown just 5 minutes from the theatre. Both are Starwood Hotels, famous for their comfortable beds that make for the perfect romantic and relaxing getaway!

Two tickets to Oz, hotel accommodations, and more perks!

    I LOVE the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel! That was the hotel my husband and I stayed at in Toronto for our first weekend getaway almost a decade ago! I have been wanting to go back there so much. From their Heavenly beds to their breathtaking views of downtown Toronto, it doesn’t get much better!

    I am looking forward to taking walks in the Byward Market, going to the Farmer’s Market, eating brunch on a terrace, etc.

    In the spring, even if it’s only 10 degrees, we Canadians don’t mind since we have all just survived a season of bone chilling temperatures of around -24 degrees. 🙂

    I am looking forward to getting out more. Right now we mostly get outdoors to the dog park or for small walks on the trails with the dogs and our boy when the trails are lacking snow , otherwise we fear the snowmobiles running us down lol. So I am looking forward to getting outdoors more when the spring comes and being able to see a lot more sunshine peaking through the clouds. Thank you for the chance.

    My girlfriend moved from Australia to Canada to start our relationship. After 5months in Toronto, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor & ha to fly back to Australia. The surgery went well, & she’s doing fine, but now has to stay in Australia due to medical costs in Canada are too expensive. So THIS SPRING I AM LOOKING FORWARD to following my very own YELLOW BRICK ROAD as I am moving to Australia (Oz) to be/live with my girlfriend!!! Can’t wait to continue our journey together & travel & explore Oz!!

      Best wishes,
      Marta

    I am looking forward to the smell of Spring in the air. Seeing the start of the tulips poking their heads up through the last bit of snow still left in the garden. That buzz in the air, Spring is Here! Driving with my windows down! Not worrying about wearing a coat before I leave the house in the morning. Packing up all the snowsuits, mits, hats and placing them in the far reaches of the hall closet. Can’t wait for Spring! Walks in the nearby Conservation Area, kids on the soccer field and the rain! Love Spring Rain!
