UPDATE: Congratulations to winner Whitney Saubert.
ORIGINAL POST: No question about it, this is a big ticket week here at the Beehive. In addition to the “Parental Guidance” and “How to Train Your Dragon Live” giveaways already ongoing, I’m throwing another one into the mix: the Central California Ballet production of “The Nutcracker.”
I have a four-pack of tickets to give away to one reader to the 7:30 p.m. Saturday performance at the Saroyan Theatre. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite “Nutcracker” memory. (Or, if you’ve never seen the show, tell us why you’d like to go.) I’ll select one comment at random as the winner.
Deadline is 2 p.m. THURSDAY.
If you win, you’ll be able to pick up the tickets at the door. Please don’t enter more than once. Check your email between 2 and 2:30 p.m. Thursday to see if you won, because that’s how I’ll be notifying winners. Complete rules on the jump.
In the meantime, you can read my piece about Michaela DePrince’s amazing journey from African orphanage to this weekend’s Sugar Plum Fairy in Thursday’s Life section. (She’s pictured above.)
