All the fun of a classic Speaking of Stories Holiday Chestnuts performance in Carolyn Butcher and Michael Perry’s home in Montecito. Tom Hinshaw and Henry Brown will reprise favorite stories from past Holiday Chestnuts performances.

The afternoon will include a performance of one of our most popular stories, Stuart McLean’s Dave Cooks the Turkey, a hilarious glimpse into the extreme measures people will go to make their Christmas perfect — and stay out of trouble.

All proceeds will support Word Up, a dynamic education program. It works with at-risk and incarcerated youths, teaching them to perform and write poetry, developing public speaking and communication skills and improving their reading, writing, critical thinking and self-confidence.

The Holiday Chestnuts party will be from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Montecito home of Carolyn Butcher and Michael Perry, 754 Winding Creek Lane.

Tickets are $75, and $300 and $500 sponsorships are available. Ticket purchases and donations are tax deductible. To reserve tickets, call Speaking of Stories at 805.966.3875. Visa, Mastercard and American Express are accepted.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
