UPDATE 12/18: And our winner is Danielle Shapazian. Congrats!
ORIGINAL ENTRY: One of the great things about “The Nutcracker” is the fact that it’s a wonderful holiday tradition, especially when you share it with a wide-eyed child. One of the not-so-great things is that a big, live performance like this can come with a pretty hefty price tag. That’s why it’s such a pleasure to offer TWO tickets to the 2 p.m. Saturday performance of Central California Ballet’s production at the Saroyan Theatre to a lucky Beehive reader. The orchestra seats we’re giving away regularly cost $50 for adults (half-price for kids).
Winning the tickets is easy: Just tell us why you want to win. Or share a favorite “Nutcracker” memory. The winner will be randomly selected among all comments received and notified by e-mail (so use a real e-mail address). The deadline is 2 p.m. Thursday. No repeat comments please. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something in the past 30 days (the “Up in the Air” screening doesn’t count). Complete rules after the jump. You’ll need to pick up the tickets at The Bee’s front counter by 5 p.m. Friday.
“The Nutcracker” plays 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
