UPDATE: Congratulations to winner Terri Kotchevar. She’s planning to take her son to the performance.
ORIGINAL POST: It’s been touted as the Fresno area’s biggest ever local production. With a budget of $800,000 for four performances, Fresno Grand Opera has assembled a top-notch cast of national-tour and Broadway veterans for its “Les Miserables,” which opens Friday at the Saroyan Theatre.
I have two tickets to give away to the 8 p.m. Saturday performance. They’re very good lower-balcony tickets, priced at $95 each. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us how many times you’ve seen the show — and your favorite production. (You can count the movie if you want, and if you’ve never seen the stage version, that’s OK — tell us why you want to see this one.)
Deadline is 4 p.m. Wednesday. Please don’t enter more than once. I’ll be informing our winner by email shortly thereafter, so keep a watch on your inbox. If I haven’t heard from a winner by Thursday morning, I reserve the right to pick another. (I want to make sure these tickets go to good use.) These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front counter by 5 p.m. Friday to pick them up. Rules are on the jump.
