CALL FOR HELP: Burien Little Theatre Needs a 1950s-era Chair

Print This Post  Email This Post

Our friends at Burien Little Theatre want our Readers to know that they’re in need of a chair.

That’s right – a chair.

No, they’re not going to re-create Clint Eastwood’s silly performance from a recent political convention – they need it for use in their upcoming play “A Tuna Christmas,” which begins Nov. 23 and runs through Dec. 16.

“Volunteering at BLT is nothing if not interesting,” reads a note on their blog. “BLT’s current search is for a chair to go with the one pictured. A match would be “special” and one that went with it would be grand. You can see the table in the picture. BLT is looking for something 1950’s with chrome. I know these chairs came in red, green, white and off white. Maybe a few other colors too.”

BLT needs to borrow the chair – preferably a 1950s-era one like what’s pictured above – through Dec. 16, 2012, and they promise to be nice to it.

In addition to the chair, BLT is also looking for a couple of dressers, as well as helpful people backstage to help actors make quick changes. There are also a few stagehandish things to do, lower a ramp, spin some Christmas trees and run a fog machine. All great stuff and more than enough to keep people busy. BLT only needs people for tech week (Nov. 18 – Nov. 22, and for the last two weekends of the show, Dec. 7 – 16.)

“This is a great way to experience better live theater,” they added. “Come help out BLT!”

If you’ve got a chair you can loan (you can keep Clint), please contact Eric Dickman at [email protected].

      Thanks Illjo but that is not the kind of dresser BLT is looking for. BLT is looking for people to help the actors with quick costume changes – a dresser; not a place to store clothes. I sent you a text but am posting here to help clear up any confusion. Thanks again for the offer.
