Win tickets to Shine! Theatre’s production of ‘Bare: A Pop Opera’

You can win a pair of tickets to the new Shine! Theatre production of “Bare: A Pop Opera.” 

I told you about the musical last weekend in a preview interview with Max Jimenez, one of the leading actors in the production. The show resumes its second and final weekend at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 19. It continues 7 p.m. Friday, May 20, and 2 and 7 p.m. Saturday, May 21. I’m giving away two pairs of tickets to any of the final three performances.

“Bare” follows a group of teenagers living at a Catholic boarding school, including a boy named Peter (played by Jimenez), who falls in love with a male roommate. The show includes strong adult content and depictions of drug use. As an accepting congregation, St. James Episcopal Cathedral offered its sanctuary as a performance space.

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.

Leave your entry in the comment field below. Deadline to enter is 5 p.m. Thursday, May 19. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

    I’ve known Maxie for a long time, I’ve known his Nana since 1980 but I’ve never seen him perform. I hope to see him on Thursday nights performance.

    I believe in the content of the show and we support the gay community.
