Theater At Monmouth to Hold Quilt Raffle

Theater At Monmouth to Hold Quilt Raffle

In honor of TAM's 50th Season, Cumston Area Quilters have created a beautiful, handmade quilt to be raffled off as part of TAM's 50th Anniversary Celebration. Raffle tickets are $10 for one; $25 for three. The raffle will continue through TAM's 2019 What Dreams May Come Summer Repertory Season and the winner will be drawn at the final performance of Sense and Sensibility on September 22.

Michelle Young and Pam Mason of Monmouth and Tina Barden of Wayne pooled their talents to

create the celebratory quilt for Theater at Monmouth. The Pride & Purpose Quilt was designed by Kaye England, machine pieced from fabric designed by Wilmington Prints and machine-quilted by Dee Roberge. In addition to the quilt itself, which measures 80" by 93", the winner will receive two shams and a quilted carry-case.

TAM celebrates 50 years of producing Classic Theatre in Maine in 2019. The What Dreams May Come Season is bursting with works to make you laugh, cry, gasp, ponder, and experience a sense of wonder. Through classic Shakespearean thrillers, contemporary romances, and classic comedies, TAM's Golden Anniversary with sparkle and shimmer all season long.

"We were totally overwhelmed by the support of the Cumston Area Quilters," said Producing Artistic Director, Dawn McAndrews. "The time and commitment they put into creating this beautiful work of art was awe-inspiring. I'd like to win it myself but I bet there is a patron out there who has come to nearly every play for 50 years-and they deserve the right to win it!" Members of the Cumston Area Quilters agree and have said they plan to purchase raffle tickets to win the quilt themselves.

Raffle tickets can be purchased at the Theater at Monmouth Box Office before and during intermission for all performances of the 2019 Season. The winning ticket will be drawn from the stage after the final performance of Sense and Sensibility (it seemed appropriate given the name of the quilt) on September 22. All proceeds will benefit Theater at Monmouth's Artistic, Education, and Community Engagement Programs.
