It’s been four years since StageWorks Fresno kicked off its inaugural season with “[title of show],” the trippy musical about a group of friends creating a musical. Director Joel Abels returns with a faithful recreation of his 2010 hit production, which opens 8 p.m. Saturday at the Dan Pessano Theatre at the Clovis North performing arts complex. It continues through July 20.
If you haven’t noticed, the show’s opening coincides with the 4th of July weekend – a pretty daring time to open a show. But think how great it will be to have an event to treat out-of-town visitors to once the fireworks are behind them. Or an outing for locals to escape to (I can attest to the crispness of the Clovis North air conditioning) instead of getting barbecued outside on a searing weekend.
We’re having our own 4th of July celebration at the Beehive: I’m making it even easier for readers to get to see “[title of show.]” I have two four-packs of tickets to give away to either the 8 p.m. Saturday or 2 p.m. Sunday show this opening weekend. To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: Would you rather be nine people’s favorite thing — or a hundred people’s ninth favorite thing? (Or, if you aren’t in a philosophical mood, tell us if you’d go see Paris Hilton in “The Apple Tree.” Or, if you’re sick of insider “[title of show]” references, tell us if you like Rice Krispie treats.)
Deadline to enter is 10 a.m. Friday. Please don’t enter more than once. I’ll be informing our winners by email on Friday at 10, so keep a watch on your inbox. If I haven’t heard from a winner by 2 p.m. Friday, I reserve the right to pick another. You’ll be able to pick up your tickets at the theater box office. Rules are on the jump.
