Win a free virtual screening of Fresno State’s ‘All in the Timing’

The giveaways are back!

For the first time in many, many months, I am thrilled to announce that I’m giving away free tickets to a show.

My first giveaway is for Fresno State’s “All in the Timing,” a collection of six short plays by David Ives David Ives that are by turns witty, romantic, absurd, and existentially-minded. J. Daniel Herring directs.

A mainstay of community theaters, Ives’ “All in the Timing” appealed to Herring because of the times.

“This production has a feel of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and other variety show sketches,” he writes in the press release. There are six vignettes, all set in “Twilight Zone” type worlds in which everyday reality is only present in very specific moments. “Emerging from this Pandemic, it just felt right to me to present a bit of fun layered with some serious notes, but not too serious. And, boy did we have fun.”

This is a streaming presentation of an already filmed production, as has been the case for all of the productions in Fresno State’s pandemic season, but it’s different from many in that is performed on an “appointment TV” basis: The show will be streamed eight times (opening at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 4, and continuing through Saturday, June 12) and at specific start times. This isn’t YouTube on demand.


Tickets are $15 general and $10 students. Because the tickets are a little different than usual as well, so is the giveaway. I’m awarding two viewings to two different members of The Munro Review. Each viewing is good for one device.

The contest is open to members, donors and individual sponsors of The Munro Review.

Tax-deductible memberships start at $5 a month, and you can make a one-time donation of as little as $3. (Paid memberships help keep the site running, and paid members get special members-only benefits. Please consider a paid membership in support of independent, local arts journalism.) A free membership option is available.

For details on how to join, go to the Membership and Sponsorship page. No purchase, donation or membership is necessary to enter the ticket giveaway.

To enter this giveaway, leave a reply on this post (see the comments field below) telling me how it feels to be able to enter a ticket giveaway again. (Or, if you’re shy, just give your name.) Deadline to enter is 10 a.m. Sunday, June 6. Winners will be picked at random and notified by email. You’ll get the chance to pick which performance you’d like to stream.

The Munro Review has no paywall but is financially supported by readers who believe in its non-profit mission of bringing professional arts journalism to the central San Joaquin Valley. You can help by signing up for a monthly recurring paid membership or make a one-time donation of as little as $3. All memberships and donations are tax-deductible.
