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

      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.
