In honor of its upcoming L.A. premiere engagement of BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL, the Pantages Theatre is declaring that Thursday 2/2 to be “Tutu Day.” The very unofficial celebration is being marked by several celebrations involving the beautiful, inspirational and versatile tutu. In BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL, the tutu is not just a piece of dancewear, but it comes to symbolize personal expression and the dream of one boy that inspires an entire community.
Facebook Tutu Photo Contest — In advance of Tutu Day, the Pantages will host a contest January 26 – February 1 on its official Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/PantagesHollywood. First, fans will be invited to upload a photo of them wearing a tutu. Next, our Facebook community will cast votes on which photo they like the best, and the one with the most votes at the end of the contest will be awarded two free tickets to the first performance of BILLY ELLIOT THE MUSICAL along with a gift bag and a poster signed by the entire cast.
