Do You Have the Right Stuff?

Four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris is coming to Sacramento next Friday, April 30. YOU could be there to meet him… If you’re lucky…

Harris stars in the new film Touching Home, based on the bestselling memoir Either You’re In or You’re in the Way written by Northern Cali twin brothers Logan and Noah Miller. The story follows the brothers’ efforts to save their homeless father (played by Harris) by pursuing professional baseball careers–despite their working class background. The publicity folks call it “a coming-of-age drama, an account of overcoming enormous odds and a tale about family and the bonds that matter.”

The movie premiers red-carpet-style with a VIP event next Friday that’s selling for $100 per ticket (proceeds benefit the B Street Theatre). The ticket price gets you into a pre-party with the stars where they’ll be serving up free apps, wine, and Lagunitas beer, followed by a red carpet walk with the stars (and local dignitaries), the movie premier followed by a Q & A with Harris and the twins (who also star in the film), and finally, an after-party at Social Nightclub. The best part? Your favorite SacRag writer (that’s me, GreenBeet, right?) will be there, too. Now that’s what I call a party!

But wait… There’s more! If you have the right stuff, YOU can win a free ticket to join the fanfare. I’ve got one ticket each for the first two people to 1) email me with the correct answer to my Ed Harris trivia question (below), and 2) write “Ed Harris tickets” in the subject line. My email is greenbeet AT SacRag DOT com.

On your marks. Get set. Go!

Q. Which director gave Ed Harris his first leading role?

P.S. If you don’t win and would like to buy tickets, visit www.bstreettheatre.org or call 916.433.5300

  4. John, you got the right answer, but you needed to respond to my email box. Sorry!

    If it’s any consolation, I just read that folks can buy $25 tickets to the premier of the movie (no VIP pre- and post-events).
