LEWISTON - The Public Theatre's 16th Annual Silent Auction opened April 28th and will run through May 10th, coinciding with the theatre's last show of the season, The Last Mass at St. Casimir's by Tom Dudzick.

“The Auction would not be possible without the generous support of the scores of businesses and individuals in our community. We are very grateful for their support, especially in the current economic environment.” noted Connie Bedette, Silent Auction Chair. “It is great to see how many businesses appreciate the value in participating.”

This year's Auction will feature over 200 items from area businesses, local artists, and theatre supporters, including original works of art, ski lift tickets, golf, tickets to arts events, and other great gifts. There will also be everyday items, from oil changes and grocery gift cards to spa treatments, yoga sessions, and massages. You can even bid on a pair of tickets to the Red Sox vs Oakland A's - July 8, 2009 at 7:05pm. The great thing about the Silent Auction is there truly is something for everyone.

Red Sox Fans take note: Two tickets to the Boston Red Sox vs the New York Yankees are being raffled off as part of the Silent Auction Event. The game is at Fenway on June 9, 2009 at 7:05pm. These are excellent seats and raffle tickets are only $1 each or $5 for six chances.

The Raffle and Silent Auction are open to the public. You may place bids on the Silent Auction items or purchase raffle tickets through May 10 during Box Office Hours, 12pm-5pm daily, and during performances. The Public Theatre is located at Lisbon & Maple Streets in Downtown Lewiston. For more information about this event, call The Public Theatre at 782-2211.
