Bard on the Beach Contest Take Two

Comments 116 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Since my first Bard on the Beach contest was such a smashing success, I’ve teamed up with them once again to offer a special afternoon for a lucky reader and a guest.

By leaving a comment on this post you’ll be entered to win two tickets (reserved seats) to The Comedy of Errors presented June 27th at 3:00pm. Since it’s a special afternoon performance you’ll also be treated to a picnic lunch, catered by Emelle’s. Once the winner is selected we’ll arrange your lunch options so you can choose your preferred picnic from the list of options.

You can also get a bonus entry for this prize pack by re-tweeting the link to this post

Breyer's Ice Cream Gift Pack

Update: With a day left in the contest I’ve decided to sweeten the deal. The winner of the tickets and the picnic package will also receive an ice cream kit from Breyer’s Ice Cream. This contains coupons for free cartons for each of their new Dark Chocolate Velvet, Banana Cream Pie, and Chocolate Cheesecake varieties along with bowls and spoons. I’ll also be extending the contest another day.

Update: The contest is now closed, a winner will be announced shortly.

You can also view this video on Flickr.

Fine Print: The prize draw will take place the morning of June 24th and I will contact the winner by email. Should the prize not yet be claimed by June 24th at 5:00pm I will draw another name. Please remember to check your email that day – and check back on this post – to see if you’ve won.

    I once took in a Bard on the Beach many years ago. The performance was fantastic and the setting was most stunning.

    Bard on the Beach is fabulous. Thanks for providing this opportunity to win this special afternoon – and to able to treat a friend too. I can think of one friend who deserves a special treat.

    I’ll be in class at BCIT – but Helen deserves a treat and I’m sure she could find a friend to take.

    I once did a Bard on the Beach summer acting workshop—it was then determined that it’s best that I remain a member of the audience and not one of the cast. Fingers crossed for Comedy of Errors!

  22. DilaraWednesday, June 17th, 2009 — 12:14pm PDT

    Thanks for doing another contest! Would love to enter.

  40. Christel BWednesday, June 17th, 2009 — 2:26pm PDT

    Bard on the Beach rocks! My work took me to see Romeo and Juliet and Romeo reminded me of the lead singer from Billy Talent. Also, gotta love the little plastic cups of wine. =)

  41. RachelWednesday, June 17th, 2009 — 5:14pm PDT

    count me in !

  42. Carla ShoreWednesday, June 17th, 2009 — 5:25pm PDT

Good luck to me!
