Toilet Seat Auction
(2008-02-27)
(wgvu) - A community theater group in Royal Oak
is lifting the lid on its latest fundraising plans.
The Detroit Free Press reports toilet seats ornately decorated
by artists will be auctioned March 20 to raise money for
Stagecrafters.
A public preview is Wednesday at the Baldwin Theatre.
A production of "Urinetown: The Musical" starts next month,
and the group wanted an appropriately irreverent fundraiser.
The seats' names include "Royal Flush," for one with playing
cards, and "Bottom of the 9th," for another with Detroit Tiger
stripes.
Development Director Lesley Phillips says most of the seats are
functional.
"Urinetown" is a Tony-winning Broadway musical about a town
where people have to pay to go to the bathroom.
