SENECA COMMUNITY PLAYERS TO AUCTION OFF ROLES FOR WILLY WONKA!
Seneca Falls, NY, April 28, 2016 ——On Friday, May 13th, 2016, Seneca Community Players will give away every role for their summer musical production Willy Wonka to the highest bidder during the “Willy Wonka Auction” at the Seneca Falls Elks Club on Bayard Street. Doors open at 6:30p and the auction will begin at 7p.
“This is an unique opportunity to build community interest in theater and involve those who have always wanted to be on stage without the fear of auditioning”, Susie Cornett, the Auction Chairperson said, “It also gives families and friends the opportunity to do something fun together!”
All roles will be bid on by silent auction with the highest bidder securing their role. If bids go beyond a certain point they will be moved to a live auction. Sponsor sheets are available to help boost opening bids and can be found at www.senecacommunityplayers.org or WomanMade Products, 91 Fall St. Seneca Falls.
In addition, up for auction will be many baskets, goods and services that have been donated by local businesses and individuals.
Willy Wonka is scheduled for July 15-17th at the Delavan Theater at the NYS Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls. The show’s director is Deb Bly and the musical director is Deane Balcer. Adults of all ages and children currently enrolled in 5th grade and higher are encouraged to come out for this unique opportunity to perform in this much loved musical.
All money raised will support SCP’s mission to foster, arouse, and help broaden the interest, availability, and appreciation of the theatre arts in Seneca and the surrounding counties. The Elks Club will also be hosting a fish and steak dinner prior to the auction that same night for $10-$15 and dinner reservations are recommended. Doors for the dinner will open at 5:30p.
