That’s the question.
And if the answer is, “yes, but I don’t have the money,” then you may be in luck. I bought two tickets for opening night (actually, it’s a preview night*), June 21st.
I know what it feels like to want to attend something and the funds simply aren’t there, or feeling guilty about indulging in something that’s not a necessity. Well…if you have a way to get to the Old Vic Theatre, you may end up with some tickets.
This is a one day contest. No, make that a contest for about a day and half, because I’ll announce who gets the tickets on Sunday morning BST.
Here’s what you need to do:
Send me the reason you want the tickets in 200 words or less. No, you do not have to write 200 words. That’s just the limit for the wordy among you. Images or graphics or anything that is not necessarily text may also be included. Any of it can be funny, sad, absurd, heart wrenching. I don’t care. Just make it good. And if you win the tickets, share your experience in a guest post on RAFrenzy.
Entries need to be in by Midnight (BST) tomorrow night, June 14th. Send them here.
Have Fun and Good Luck!
I know you were dying for me to come to your performance in The Crucible. ;-) But I simply can’t make it. My business is going great guns, and I would be a fool to go anywhere right now. I hope you understand that.
But I did buy two tickets today so someone who really wants to go, but couldn’t otherwise, can attend. I hope you will be there on preview night, my friend, so that my purchase is not in vain.
Your Crazy Fan :D
P.S. Stay healthy!
*Preview night is tantamount to a dress rehearsal. It’s been my experience that performers are much more accessible after these performances than the regular performances. I think it’s because things are much more relaxed and performers also appreciate people being willing to sit through something which may not be completely polished. Again, that’s been my experience (mostly with the Metropolitan Opera in the U.S. but some with theater productions), so take that for what it’s worth to you.
edit: It has not escaped my attention today is Friday the 13th. I’m not superstitious and hope you’re not either. :D
