Contest: Kinky Boots struts into Calgary!



Jan 26, 2017

If you were to ask me what my favourite Broadway show that I’ve ever seen, I will always say Kinky Boots. (Of my favourite shows that I’ve never seen, Hamilton and Big: The Musical top that list). I’ve been lucky enough to see Kinky Boots two times, once in New York and once and London, and I’m so excited to see that the show will soon be in Calgary.

It’s sorta like when you know you get someone a really good gift and you can’t wait for them to open it. I can barely handle my excitement of knowing that thousands of Calgarians are about to see Kinky Boots for the first time and while they might know a song or two, they have no idea what they’re in for. I’m probably going to spend most of my time watching people watching it. It’s going to be great!

Broadway Across Canada’s production of Kinky Boots kicks its way into Calgary from February 21st to February 26th at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. If the show sounds familiar, it’s based on the 80s British movie of the same name, which Cyndi Lauper then turned into an award winning musical, which ended up collecting six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and Best Choreography.

The show tells the story of a small shoe factory that’s on its last legs until the factory’s owner meets a fabulous performer named Lola. I never like to tell to much of the story, because it’s so fun, fresh and full of heart. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s completely appropriate for families and I promise you, you’ll leave with a big smile on your face!

Tickets are on sale now, and from what I can tell from the site, they are going quickly. Which makes me so happy! But, if you haven’t been able to snag your tickets, well this could be your lucky day! I have a pair of tickets to give away to opening night on February 21st!

To be entered to win, head to the comments section and tell me your about your favourite pair of shoes. Maybe it’s a pair of high heels that make you feel like a million bucks, or the tried and true cowboy boots that come out for ten days a year. For me, I love a good Camper shoe. I wear mine every chance I get!

Contest closes: February 19th

If you don’t want to chance it, be sure to grab your ticket to Kinky Boots before it sells out. I know more than anything I’ve ever known before that you’ll absolutely love it.

    Oh boy! We got to see this show in New York and I danced right out of the theatre in my dancing shoes! My favourite shoes would probably be my wedding shoes, they are gold and sparkly and make me feel like Dorothy from oz! Thanks for holding this contest!

    I am answering this for my daughter, Kiki. I want to win these tickets for her. Her favourite shoes are her turning shoes. She loves to turn. “She is a turner in most of her dances” and loves her turning shoes for this. She dances every day of the week and believe me these shoes get used and she is always needing a new pair. Would love tone able to take her to “KINKY BOOTS”

    Love my silver Tigers! Debuted them for Gaga and having enjoyed the Kinky Boots movie I think they would be great to sport to the live production – Thanks Mike!

    My favourite shoes are my Nike Indoor Soccer Cleats. Nothing better than hitting the soccer pitch after a long hard day and I play so much better with my Nike cleats.
