Use your wits to win tix! July 1 deadline!

Use your wit to win two tickets to a 2011 Barnstormers play of your choice!

Listed below in bold are this summer’s eight plays at The Barnstormers. There are 30 words in total if you add up the words in all the titles. The challenge is to create a vignette using all 30 words. It can be as long as you like, but less is more—as in fewer words will more likely win. Entries will be judged on creativity, the story’s punch, and how few extra words are used. Please “bold” the 30 Barnstormer words in your story. Email your entry to: with the subject line:  “Barnstormers Contest” or drop it off at the theatre box office. Deadline is July 1. Winner may pick any show where tickets are still available.

2011 Barnstormers season line-up: You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown; Lend Me a Tenor; A Life in the Theatre; Gold in the Hills; Bus Stop; Murder on the Nile; Bedroom Farce; The 39 Steps.

Here’s an example:
As they paused on the theatre steps, the man said, “Charlie, you’re a good tenor.  I’d murder him for saying that.” Charlie felt his life was a farce, and he yearned for the gold and brown bedroom in the hills overlooking the Nile. As Bus 39 screeched to a stop in front of them, Charlie turned to the man, “I left my wallet; will you lend me the fare?"

We’re sure you can do better!  Have fun.
