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.

    My favorite are my UGGs. They are so comfy and keep me warm during these harsh Calgary Winters.

    My favourite shoes are flip flops – they equal summer, can be worn in showers that are suspect and pack well. Love!

    My fave shoes are my Birkenstocks- they are just so comfortable I wear them year round (inside of course during the snowy months)

    My Skechers Nautical Boat Shoes are my fab-favorite! I wear them to do errands, at the office, and yes– Boating in the summer! It’s just pure awesomeness when a pair of shoes is so versatile & makes you feel confident, comfy, and happy!

    My favourites are just a pair of grey with black polka dot flat Van sneakers. They’ve served me well, exploring the streets of NYC, Copenhagen, Reykyjavik, Shanghai, not to mention walking the dogs all over YYC… keeping me comfortable the whole time! They earn the top spot as my trusty travel companions!
