Due to an email glitch, winners of the Saturday matinee lottery may have received an email confirming their Sunday matinee tickets, and vice versa. If you received a matinee winner's email, please come to the show you entered for. Your name will be on the list! We are very sorry for any confusion this caused. We blame the humidity. You should see what it's doing to the sheep's wool.
