The Silent Auction supports Maine in two great ways; supporting a local Arts organization, and promoting Maine's diverse range of goods. When choosing your donation please keep this in mind. Any donation is greatly appreciated, but we will be featuring Maine Made items in a special section and clearly identifying them. Please be sure to let us know if your donation is a Maine product.

Almost 200 items will be on display in The Public Theatre Lobby, during the run of Crossing Delancey, May 6 - 15, 2016

You need not attend a performance to bid. Simply stop by The Public Theatre, at Libson & Maple Streets in Downtown Lewiston, during Box Office Hours. The Box Office is open 12 noon - 5pm Monday-Friday, and opens at 12 noon on performance days.

The Importance of the Silent Auction

The Auction is one of our largest fundraisers and is vital to keeping our ticket prices affordable to all. In past years this exciting event, which is our single largest fundraiser of the season, has raised thousands of dollars for The Public Theatre, contributing greatly to our ability to continue providing quality, professional theatre at a very reasonable price.
