Dallas — For today's giveaway, we have tickets for the cinema screenings of the Bolshoi Ballet's season-opening production of the classic Giselle. Oh, and also for a little play from the National Theatre called Hamlet. Maybe you've heard of him. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch. Maybe you've heard of HIM.

Yes, we're giving away tickets to both events, at both the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano, so listen up:

Giselle screens at:

  • 11:55 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 11 at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano
  • 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano

To enter for a pair of tickets to Giselle, email tickets@theaterjones.com and put GISELLE BOLSHOI in the subject line. In the body of the email, put your name, number and best email contact, and include which screening AND which theater you prefer, Dallas or Plano. Deadline to enter: 11:50 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9 (for the Sunday screening) and 11:50 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11 (for the Tuesday screening). We'll notify winners Saturday and Monday.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Hamlet

 

NOW FOR HAMLET

Benedict Cumberbatch plays the Danish prince. And we'll remind you we were behind his stage career before he got all movie-famous, back when he and fellow Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller, took turns playing Frankenstein and the Creature in the National Theatre's Frankenstein.

Lyndsey Turner directs, and the cast also includes Sian Brooke as Ophelia, Ciarán Hinds as Claudius, Anastasia Hille as Gertrude, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Laertes, Jim Norton as Polonius and Karl Johnson as Ghost/Gravedigger.

The screenings are:

  • 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano
  • 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano

At the 6 p.m. screening in Dallas, some TheaterJones staffers will be on hand, and we'll have some surprises for you. Lance Lusk will introduce the play on Thursday.

To be entered into a drawing for a pair of tickets, email tickets@theaterjones.com and put HAMBATCH in the subject line (sounds better than Cumberlet, huh?) Include your name, number and best email contact IN THE BODY of the email. Also, include which location and date you'd like to attend; you won't be considered if you don't include this info. Your deadline to enter for Hamlet is 11:50 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12. We'll notify the winners on Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Again, your Hamlet choices are:

  • 6pm Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Angelika Film Center Dallas
  • 6pm Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Angelika Film Center Plano
  • 2pm Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the Angelika Film Center Dallas
  • 2pm Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the Angelika Film Center Plano

TheaterJones staffers and contributors, and their family members, are ineligible to play. Thanks For Reading
