UPDATE: Our winner is Stephen Bohr. Thanks, all, for entering. You provided some great Christmas memories!
ORIGINAL ENTRY: StageWorks Fresno opens a short but intense run on Wednesday of the holiday classic “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.” The company is staging eight performances of the play in just five days.
I used the theme of the show — and the appearance in it of mother-daughter duo Wendy and Emma Denbesten — in my Sunday Spotlight column to muse on the idea of Christmas memories.
Here’s our contest: One lucky Beehive reader will win a voucher good for four tickets at any performance of the show — a $119 value. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite entertainment holiday memory. Was it an annual trip to “The Nutcracker”? The “Grinch” on TV? Your church Christmas program? Christmas Tree Lane? Caroling in the streets? Staying up all night to watch the marathon of “A Christmas Story” on cable?
Deadline is 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
I’ll pick the winner at random. If you win, I’ll email you a voucher with instructions on how to redeem your four tickets. Please leave a real e-mail address and please check it Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. to see if you’ve won. Duplicate entries are not allowed. You’re ineligible if you’ve won anything from the Beehive in the past 30 days. Full rules on the jump.
