Win tickets
to 'The Nutcracker'

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than with a pair of free tickets to “The Nutcracker”? The Valley Performing Arts Council production plays for two performances (1 and 6 p.m.) on Friday, Nov. 23, at Fresno’s Saroyan Theatre. If you’re one of our two winners, you’ll get to pick which performance to attend.

The contest is open only 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 below answering this question: If you could visit the Kingdom of the Sweets and gorge yourself on just one kind of candy, what would it be? (Or, if you’d prefer to keep your sugar additions to yourself, just say why you want to attend.) Deadline to enter is noon Wednesday, Nov. 21. The winner will be picked at random and notified by email.

    I’ve never have had the pleasure of attending a nutcracker performance. This would make this holiday season that much more spectacular for me. I WOULD LOVE to finally see what is the kingdom of the sweets.

    I took my granddaughter to see Nutcracker when she was 5, now she’s 30. It’s definitely time to see it together again.

    I would love being transported to the Kingdom of Sweets, if only for a few hours, to see how life is in a never-ending Candyland!

    I can’t hear or see any reference to The Nutcracker without thinking of my mother, Elizabeth. She loved the story so much that she taught a lesson about it each year to her elementary school students. When my sisters and I were younger, our family made a trip to San Francisco to see a performance. The house lights went down and the curtains opened on the front of a beautiful home, painted on what I learned later in high school drama class was called a scrim. The image of the house faded as the lights came up on the elegant and lively party going on inside, and I was transfixed. The goosebumps I got then return now as I recall those moments. As for the sweets I would pick, I would seek out and savor a delectable treat that included chocolate, coffee, and hazelnuts!
