Here’s the deal: I’m putting my money where my mouth is. More of you should do the same, if you can. I want more people to get to know what Louisville has to offer. So throughout the next several months, I’m giving away four tickets to nine different Actors Theatre productions. On a few occasions, winners of the tickets will also be treated to a delicious dinner and an evening in one of Louisville’s unique hotels. While Actors Theatre is an advertiser on our network of websites, they’re not a sponsor of this contest and have no input. The staff are aware of everything, however.
Let’s get down to business…
If you’ve seen the movie or read the book, you know The Kite Runner is a touching story. If you haven’t, here’s what Actors has to say about it: A universal tale of friendship and family. Adapted from the international bestselling novel, this sweeping tale explores friendship and family, loyalty and betrayal, and the possibility of redemption. The Kite Runner is a universal story that follows the bond between two boys in Afghanistan who are pulled apart by decades of civil unrest, and one man’s epic journey to confront the past.
And if you’ve never been to an Actors show (or even if you have), this is your chance to experience something great.
All you have to do to enter the contest is leave a comment on this post (send me an email if you’re terrified of making up a screen name or message me on Twitter if you so desire). Tell us why you’re interested in seeing the show. I’ll hold a drawing in a few days so you’ll have plenty of time to plan. Be sure to enter your actual email address (not maintained or sold) in the proper field so I may contact winners.
Two of you will receive one voucher for two tickets each (an $88 value!) to be used Sunday through Thursday or during Saturday matinees. They’re good August 31 through September 12, though The Kite Runner runs from August 31 through September 25. If you’re not a fancy winner, please consider buying tickets and supporting one of Louisville’s gems.
Please spread the word on your radio and television shows, blogs, websites and social networking profiles. It’s time for everyone to focus on what we have right here inside the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We need to promote and take advantage of what is uniquely ours.
