Update: Congratulations to contest winner Karen Demerly.

Opening night of Enter Love is sold out, but you still have a chance to get tickets. How you ask? It’s easy. Check out our promotional video over at YouTube and leave a comment right below the video. Yep, that’s all there is to it.

We’ve been including a little bonus along with each of our weekly contests, and this is no exception. The winner (chosen at random from the comments over on YouTube) will receive two tickets to this Friday’s show, free dinner at the Bistro in Lafayette, and tickets to a show at the Cabaret in Indianapolis.

That’s quite a bit of reward for spending five minutes over on YouTube.

A winner will be selected at random from all comments left before the end of the day on 8/12.

Terms and Conditions

We’re a simple, homegrown show doing some grassroots marketing, so we’re keeping the legal verbage as straight-forward as possible:

  1. Prizes cannot be redeemed for cash
  2. Cast and crew of the show aren’t eligible to win (friends and family members ARE ELIGIBLE)
  3. Although we’d love to have some folks in the audience from abroad, for legal reasons only residents of the U.S. are eligible to enter
