Centerstage Theatre needs your help to make it through the storm.
Celebrate Centerstage 2020: Staying Afloat online auction and virtual fundraiser will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 20 to Wednesday, June 24.
Similar to many arts organizations, Centerstage Theatre is facing critical shortfall for 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theatre was forced to cancel shows for the spring and summer.
While still planning to open their season on Oct. 2, great uncertainty remains regarding social distancing or allowance of live audiences, the theatre wrote in a recent news release.
Centerstage is hoping to raise $35,000 to help pay staff and theatre artists and plan for next season while keeping the lights on and helping professional theatre survive in the South Sound.
The virtual benefit event opens at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 20. An online auction allows bidding for items such as a South Africa safari for two, Porsche driving skills certification course and much more.
A Golden Ticket raffle gives donors a chance to win a night of pampering at Cedarbrook Lodge near SeaTac.
On the fundraiser’s closing night June 24, a live stream wrap-up of the event includes performances by Centerstage’s favorite actors, raise the paddle and a live auction of select items.
The event is free, however attendees must register to participate.
