Cincinnati Playhouse to Host Scenery Shop Sale, 6/7
It's garage sale season, and the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park will offer its unique take on the tradition with a sale of props, furniture, dresses and more from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 7, at the Playhouse's Scenery Shop, which is located at 2827 Gilbert Ave. (across from Thomson-MacConnell Cadillac).
Sale items from the theatre's storage vaults include distinctive pieces from Playhouse productions, such as the glass-topped platform coffee table from this season's A DELICATE SHIP, two bus station-style benches and the ticket booth from THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, a blue wooden pedestal table and four chairs from THUNDER KNOCKING ON THE DOOR and a gaming chair from LEVELING UP. Also included are a china hutch from DEAD ACCOUNTS, two claw-footed ottomans from THE FALL OF HEAVEN, the iconic bathtub from BEHIND THE EYE, a chair and chaise longue from SPEAKING IN TONGUES, white and red area rugs from AS YOU LIKE IT and the "Skip's" surfboard bar sign from HIDING BEHIND COMETS.
Additionally, the sale will feature a selection of china and glassware, a matching set of four dining chairs and various single chairs, several pedestal tables and office desks, bookshelves and cabinets, end tables, a library cabinet, a metal drafting table, area rugs, throw pillows and chair cushions, several ladders, a concrete cherub planter and other miscellaneous items, including spools of ribbon and trim.
There will also be a collection of 20th-century day dresses, along with some formal dresses and fabric yardage, from the Playhouse's Costume Shop.
Prices will range from $1 each for glassware and china; $5 and up for dresses, pillows and chair cushions; to $10 and up for furniture items. Fabric pieces and bolts will be sold in their entirety, and ribbon and trim will be sold for $2 per bagful. All items will be sold "as is."
Payment is by cash or check only. All proceeds will benefit the Playhouse, a
not-for-profit organization. All sales are final, and all items must be taken on the day of the sale.
The Playhouse is supported, in part, by the generosity of the tens of thousands of individuals and businesses that give to ArtsWave. The Ohio Arts Council helps fund the Playhouse with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. The Playhouse also receives funding from the Shubert Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
