To all our fellow Downton Abbey fans out there, its coming up fast … and were not talking about Christmas. We have something even better! Join us for costumes, cocktails and a special 1-hour sneak peek of Season 3 at the Arkansas PBS Foundaion Jazz Age Cocktail Reception and Downton Abbey: Season 3 screening event in North Little Rocks Argenta Community Theater, Wednesday, Dec. 19, at 6 p.m.
And what might this fabulous evening consist of, you might ask?
Well, to begin with, youll finally have an opportunity to deck yourself out in the Belle Epoque or Jazz Age finery of your dreams without evoking any wayward glances whatsoever.
Unless your costume is better than ours, that is. With a cutthroat period costume contest, which promises rose garden bragging rights and a fabulous prize for the winner, were in it to win it.
But, what, you say, if a period costume party doesnt light your fire? Well, we cant imagine why it wouldnt. However, fancy digs though highly encouraged are purely optional. There will be plenty more to tempt your little British-drama-loving heart!
First of all, in addition to fabulous period costume contests, the Arkansas PBS Foundaions lovely Jazz Age Cocktail Reception will feature drinks including a signature cocktail provided by Glazers and scrumptious hors d oeuvres whipped up by Starving Artist Café.
And, while we can neither officially confirm nor deny this report, a little birdie has mentioned that we may be so fortunate as to have members of the Conway Symphony Orchestra entertaining during the evening.
Your tickets to this night of elegance? Theyre yours for just $25 if youre an Arkansas PBS Foundaion Member, and $30 if youre still toying with the idea of joining. So practice your best Dowager-style-superior-glances. Its going to be a classy, classy night!
And, my dears, that is only the beginning. Were on pins and needles waiting for the second act a free, one-hour screening of Downton Abbey: Season 3 at 7:30 p.m.
Will there be a wedding for our favorite kissing cousins? Will Bates and Anna finally catch a break? And, hello! A Shirley MacLain/Maggie Smith square-off?! Its time these questions were answered … or at least appropriately hinted at!
Dont wait too long to decide youre ready for this delightful December evening, though, ladies and lords. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis, and because seating is limited seats to the free screening are available only with RSVP.
And just how might you go about securing your space? Were very glad you asked. Follow this link to aetnfoundation.org/boxoffice or call 800.662.2386. Were getting our tickets now and would be more than happy to have you join us!
