    The production sounds absolutely charming and if I won tickets i’ld give them a nice donation as they are not for profit and a lot goes into producing a play.

  26. Jennifer November 3, 2018 at 9:33 am #

    I have always wanted to go to this show, but have never been able to make it due to various reasons. This is my shot!

  27. James Njoroge November 3, 2018 at 11:27 am #

    A childhood friend whom we did theater together and I haven’t seen for 13 yrs will be visiting me from out of country and this would a great experience for her to see a production like this since she still does plays and it will be her first holiday season in the U.S.
    Thanks.

  69. Christopher "Moonshocker" Griffin November 20, 2018 at 12:43 pm #

    I really think those “life-size puppets” are not really puppets but I won’t spoil the fun for the children! Shhhhhhh as far as they know, they are real!

    Would love to go for the theatrical quality mostly and the production of it, see how well its put together, and if the “Christmas spriit” is still alive & well! Is it? Christmas is the time of year where we can let go of politics and just enjoy the season…and each other. Let’s say bless everyone and all just get along. I want to go and have fun to tell everyone how great it was!

  75. Greer Martin November 21, 2018 at 4:30 am #

    Tanja is coming in from Holland and I would love to show her the best Portland has to offer. This would be a great for her experience
