Battle of the Bards VI
ANNOUNCEMENT: Pre-sale tickets for both performances have sold out. There will be a very limited number of tickets (~10) available at the door on a first come first serve basis. These tickets will go on sale at 6:30 pm both nights and will be available for night of purchase only. Ticket purchasers should arrive no later than 7:55pm to ensure that their ticket is not released back to the general public.

A ticket to either night or a $1 donation will allow you entrance to Saturday night's party, which will begin shortly after 10:00pm!


In BATTLE OF THE BARDS VI, three ensembles compete for a spot in Ghost Light's 2012-13 Season. Each ensemble has 20 minutes to perform a scene from a new adaptation of a classic work and the audience chooses the winner! Admission includes one vote - additional votes are only $1 each. All proceeds support the work of Ghost Light Theatricals.

The cast, crew, and audience will celebrate right after the Saturday performance with drinking, dancing, and voting! At midnight, Ghost Light will announce the winning show and the rest of our 2012-2013 season. A ticket to either performance of BARDS VI or a donation is admission into the party.

YOU CAN VOTE FOR SHOWS TODAY! Visit our webpage for links to Paypal, F.A.Q.s, and a list of past Bards winners. http://ghostlighttheatricals.org/battle-of-the-bards-vi/
