Win tickets to a benefit of ‘A Christmas Carol’


Here’s a chance for a family or group of friends to enjoy the stage version of the beloved Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol” while enjoying a special night at the theater. I’m giving away FOUR tickets to a Wednesday Dec. 4 benefit performance of the show at the 2nd Space Theatre. This Good Company Players production features Mark Norwood in the title role of Scrooge, and the evening includes some other bonuses as well, such as special treats, a dessert auction and Christmas carols performed by members of the Junior Company. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the pre-show starts at 7:15, and the production starts at 7:30.

It’s all a benefit for the Juniors. If you don’t win tickets, you can purchase them for $30. (Box office number is (559) 266-0660.

To enter our contest, write a comment on this post telling us which Christmas ghost you’d most prefer to be visited by — would it be Christmas Past, Christmas Present or Christmas Future? (If you don’t want to get that philosophical, just tell us why you like “A Christmas Carol.”)

Deadline for entry is 5 p.m. today (Tuesday). I’ll be picking our winner at random and notifying him or her by email. (So watch yours at about that time.) One comment per person. Rules are on the jump.

Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.

Im fascinated by the idea of being visited by my ‘present’. Would it be like stepping away from your life as it is and seeing what others think of you…. and isn’t that the same as hiring a social media manager? Either way, Im in! I want these tickets. Cant wait to see the show!

Ghost of Christmas Present! That’s who I played twice in past performances of this show and also I like the idea of being in the “present” and who better to tune one into that? Plus it’s the jolliest of the ghosts who visit Scrooge that night.

Future. I’d like a glimpse into the upcoming years.
