Have you ever dreamt of being center stage at the Wortham Theater Center? Have you ever wanted to ask a Houston Ballet ballerina what she eats for lunch?

Or do you not even know where to begin when it comes to navigating Houston's amazing Theater District offerings?

This weekend, you can get the answers to all your performing arts questions in one shot — and be rewarded for it, too.

The 2011 Capital One Bank Theater District Open House takes place on Sunday from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. You'll have the opportunity to learn everything you've ever wanted to know about Houston's nine major performing arts organizations — Alley Theatre, Da Camera of Houston, Gexa Energy Broadway at the Hobby Center, Houston Ballet, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Symphony, Society for the Performing Arts, Theatre Under The Stars and Uniquely Houston.

But there's more in it for you than simply an exciting, educational afternoon.

When you play CultureMap's Theater District Open House Check-In & Win contest, the rewards get even better.

Just sign onto location-based social application Gowalla (it's free to use!). Complete CultureMap's trip by checking in to all four listed locations as you visit them at Theater District Open House on Sunday.

Once you check in to all four locations, you'll automatically be entered to win great prizes from SPA, Houston Ballet, Houston Symphony and many more.

We love pulling back the proverbial curtain on all the amazing events happening all over town. Now we want to pull back the actual curtain on Houston's Theater District, and allow you to win the chance to experience everything that it has to offer.

Happy checking-in-to-win!
