Win tickets to ‘A Wicked Night at the Ballet’

UPDATE: We have a winner: Kassandra Garcia. Look for a story in Friday’s 7 section about “A Wicked Night at the Ballet.”

ORIGINAL STORY: I’m giving away two tickets to the Lively Arts Foundation’s “A Wicked Night at the Ballet,” which will feature an evening of classical and contemporary dance from top-notch Bay Area dancers. It’s 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Shaghoian Hall on the Clovis North High School campus.

The program features the full Menlowe Ballet company — which was a highlight at the “Best of the Bay 2″ concert in January at the Saroyan Theatre — along with members of the Smuin Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet and Ballet San Jose. Among the pieces to be performed: an original piece from Menlowe Ballet titled “Plague,” the famed “Black Swan” pas de deux from “Swan Lake,” and the pas de deux from the graveyard scene in “Giselle.”

I’ll give the pair of tickets to the THIRD commenter on this post. I won’t post any comments until at least three are received. These are “paper tickets,” so you’ll need to be able to pick them up at The Bee’s front lobby on Friday. Please leave a real address and please check it. No duplicate entries allowed. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something from us in the past 30 days. Complete rules after the jump.

No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use.
