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