Dear reader, do you find yourself burdened with extra cash this holiday season? Has your wallet become so over-stuffed with crisp twenties that you can no longer lift it without the aid of an industrial crane? Do you repeatedly injure yourself tripping over the piles of gold bars carelessly strewn across your bedroom floor? Well then please, allow me to help ease the burden of your oppressive wealth by suggesting you spend some money on the following awesome things:
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at Notre Dame de Namur University: This charmer of a show will be presented by my school the first two weekends of December. Tickets are a mere $20 ($15 for students and seniors; $5 for NDNU students). You can reserve your spot by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (650) 508-3729, and then you can pay at the door the day you come to the show. For more information about locations and times, please click here. It would mean the world for me if you all could make it out to see this!
The Oddman Family Christwanzaakuh Spectacular! at The Exit Stage Left Theater: A brand new holiday offering from the creator of Emo! The Musical, this bizarre comedy runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 PM, December 2nd through the 18th. Tickets are $20, and can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets, or by calling 800-838-3006. The cast features my gentleman caller, Tony, who is pretty dang funny; so you should shell out some cash to experience his awesomeness firsthand. You can visit the show’s website for more information.
Wise Up! at MCCSF: Yet another new musical, this one written by my dear friend (and Spelling Bee co-star) Mr. Wayne Self. Wise Up! takes the familiar Christmas story of the three wise men and re-imagines it as the tale of three drag queens who follow their star to some very unexpected places. It runs January 7th, 8th, 14th, and 15th at 8:00 PM at the Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco. Tickets can be bought from Brown Paper Tickets, and are just $15 if you buy in advance ($20 at the door). The advance ticket sales are crucial to helping Wayne & Co figure out their budget, so please go buy some tickets and support original theater!
There. I have single-handedly saved you from your own crippling avarice. YOU’RE WELCOME.
