TICKET GIVEAWAY! Win a Four-Pack of Tickets to “The Story”

December 6, 2013 13:50 pm · 14 comments



Claycord.com is excited to announce a ticket giveaway to “The Story”, NorthCreek Church’s very popular annual Christmas presentation.

Believe us, you have never seen a presentation like “The Story” in your life.

Dozens of dedicated volunteers have spent over ten months recreating multiple works of art, including The Last Supper and The Pieta. The artists take multiple photographs of the art and scale them to life-size versions, and present the “living” art in front of a live audience.

Using almost every imaginable item found at a hardware store, they build, carve, modify, and paint each piece to amazing detail. Even more remarkable, live models are placed in the art whenever possible. As an example, The Last Supper: The art piece is 20 feet long and 14 feet high. Thirteen men are dressed in costumes and painted to match Leonardo da Vinci’s painting.

Backstage, the models walk into the piece, and when the curtain opens, they freeze in position. You, the audience, will be blown away by the detail. The experience is completed with a vocal team, and narration walking you through the story of Christ.

Last year, over 3,000 people attended “The Story”, and this year, all six presentations from December 12 to December 15 are all already two thirds sold out, so do not delay if you wish to purchase tickets. For times and ticket purchases, click on “The Story” ad on Claycord.com (top left-hand sidebar), or visit TheStoryInArt.com.

And now, to the ticket giveaway! Claycord is giving away a family four-pack to your choice of performances with an exclusive backstage tour. The ticket package value is $80, and the backstage tour is priceless!

All you have to do is send an email to news@claycord.com with the words “I WANT TICKETS TO THE STORY”, and you will be entered to win. All emails will be discarded after a winner is chosen, and will only be seen by Claycord.com.

Winners will be announced on Monday Dec. 9th on Claycord.com and on the Claycord.com Facebook page.

Winners must contact Claycord.com within 24 hours of being chosen. If no contact is made, another winner will be picked to fill the spot.

Ah man, I already bought my tix. Never heard of the show before I saw the ad on claycord. We are looking forward to seeing it.

We aren’t even very religious but we decided to go see this last year and were surprised by how detailed all the scenes are and how well produced the show is. This is something you would expect to see at a theater in S.F. or N.Y., not in Walnut Creek.

I went to last years performance with my family and loved it! The living art was absolutely amazing, I couldn’t believe that there were actually real people woven into the art itself. It was a very professional performance with wonderful orchestrated music, vocalists and narration. I already have my tickets for this year, and have invited my folks to join our family. This is definately a must see and will become a family tradition for all who go. Thumbs up!

My curiosity is piqued . It sounds so interesting, and such a departure from the traditional performances out there.

It’s actually a great event. I was in the choir last year and this year, I am part of the make-up team for the last supper. You will be amazed at the art pieces.

I attend NCC, and also attended “The “Story” last yeaor, and brought guests. The word “amazing” is so overused in our culture that I hate to use it, but this presentation is absolutely, unequivocally amazing.

You won’t regret attending.

I hope that those of you who’ve not seen it will come back and write about your impression of it.

It was a great show last year – going again.
The last supper was awesome the way they presented it – surprised!

Can’t wait.

I’m one of the models, and my piece will be presented during both Sunday services at NorthCreek Church this Sunday 12/8 at 9am and 11am. You can view it live via streaming at http://ncclive.org, or come to church and see it in person.

It is really fun to work on this performance. I have a pretty easy part: sit still and let someone paint me so that I match the picture background. Then get into the piece without messing the makeup, and hold still for a few minutes. The makeup artists do the hard work.

The artists that create the pieces are astounding. There is painting, sculpture, and construction in wood and steel. The pieces are big, and many have to support people standing in and on them. And they have to roll silently as they are brought forward and back on the stage.

Come and check it out!

Just a follow-up on my earlier comment. I’m not an art guy. My wife really wanted to go to this last year. I reluctantly agreed. I was blown away at how great it was. I thought it was just going to be staring at Art for two hours. Instead, I found it to be beautifully lighted, the music compelling, and the narration top-notch. This year, I’m looking forward to attending. Thanks Claycord for this cool prize. I already have tickets for this years performance but the people that win the prize will not be disappointed.

For those who attending last year, there will be some new pieces that we created this year.

OK, I give up. Where’s Waldo?
