BalletMet Columbus’ production of “Cinderella” opens this Friday at the Riffe Center’s Capitol Theatre.

This fun, colorful and beautiful ballet is just the thing for banishing the winter blahs and we’ve got a family four-pack of tickets to give away for their 7:30 p.m. show on Thursday, Feb. 10. Just go to our Facebook page (Columbus Parent Magazine) and follow the instructions to win!

But if you’re not our lucky winner, you can still get tickets for matinee and evening shows anytime from Feb. 4 through Feb. 13. This is definitely a family-friendly event, suitable for even your preschoolers!

There’s also a special Cinderella Tea Party event on Saturday, Feb. 5, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. You can attend a party and the performance for $85, or attend the party only for $35 a person.

Parking tip: enter the Riffe Center’s parking garage from the Front Street entrance (just north of its intersection with State Street). It’s pretty cheap (usually less than $5) and, best of all, you only have to take the elevator up to get to the theatre level (no brrrr chilly outdoors to contend with).
