COSTUME SHOP CLEAN UP & COSTUME PURGE!

As we prepare to manage nearly 20 productions on two stages and seek to use our budgeted resources most effectively, Park Square Theatre has decided to restructure its costume shop/storage.

In order to do this we must dispose of our entire costume stock. Some will be donated to area theatres that are better equipped to handle a rental stock, some will be given away, but most will be sold!

Sandbox Theatre will be closing This Is A World To Live In at the City Center in Minneapolis in mid-November.  We filled a 22,000 square foot space with construction, so there is a lot of material to get rid of. 

Available material includes (but is not limited to):

  • 15+ - 4x8 flats faced with masonite
  • 6 - 4x8 flats faced with lauan
  • 4 - 4x8 platforms w/ 3/4" plywood decking
  • Several hundred feet of 4 mil flame retardant plastic sheeting (approx. 8ft wide)
  • Unused paints in a variety of colors
  • Lumber (mainly 1x4 and 2x4 of varying lengths)
  • Blank 24"x30" canvases
  • (and much more)

We will be dismantling it all November 17-18, and everything needs to leave the space during those two days.  We will not be dropping things in a dumpster, we cannot leave things on a curb, and we won't be able to make deliveries, so it's important that you are able to pick up during those days.

If you would like to get a tour of the set and stake your claim to something, please contact us before then.

Above is a picture of the Ford plant training center auditorium. The rows of seating on the right side of the picture and the tables in the middle are soon to be thrown away unless Ford can find someone that wants them. They’d like to see them reused.

Number of seats: There are 4 rows of seats that are separated into 2 mirror-image sections, left and right. The first row on each side has 15 seats, 2nd row has 16 seats, 3rd row has 17 seats and 4th row has 20 seats. The total is 136 seats. It looks like each seat can be removed from the base individually.

Tables in front of room: 3 rows of slightly curved tables. Row 1 is about 10 feet long on each side (again, mirror image right and left), rows 2 and 3 are about 25 feet long on each side. All the tables can be separated into 5 foot sections. Tables are bolted to the floor, but shouldn’t be too difficult to remove.

Timeline for removal: Training center should not be impacted by demolition until Fall 2013, but the sooner the seating and tables are removed, the better.

Terms for removal: Interested party will be responsible for removal and transport of the seating / tables.

As we get ready to take out the McKnight Theatre here in lovely St. Paul, in order to make space for the new concert hall, we are looking for a good home for the theatre seats. They are made by Irwin and a very nice Cadet Blue upholstery. They are original to the Ordway and extremely well maintained.

There are three different widths. In the plan (see link to PDF below), “A” seats are 19” wide (38 available), “B” are 20” wide (126 available) and “C” are 21” wide (78 available).

The removable seating Rows A – C listed are made for a raked seating riser and mount flat to floor. All other seats types in the Balcony Rows AA – DD s are made for flat risers and mount on riser face (6” face).

Chairs shown in boxes and loge are loose seats and are not a part of this package.

The Ordway will retain a dozen of the “A” size seat pans and backs as the parts will work with our Music Theatre seats and we need parts. The frames will go. This count is not included in the available list above.

We are looking at $100 per seat. We will be removing them in early May and would like to load them directly onto the interested party’s truck.

If interested please contact me with the number of seats and the seat width (A, B, or C) - First come - First served.

I have a large collection of wooden fence posts being used for a set in St. Paul that I simply can't store when we're finished.  I put an ad on craigslist offering "free lumber" that proved to be very popular, so I thought maybe I should find a theater company who could use it first.  There's a total of 24 round posts (rough-hewn, in lengths of 8', 10', and 12') and 8 square posts (12' long).

 
They're available beginning Friday, February 22nd and are FREE to whomever can pick them up.  Note--it is a large load, so plan on multiple trips with a standard pickup truck.

WANT
Savage Umbrella is seeking two robes for our upcoming production. Like a monk's robe (not a bathrobe), though they don't have to have hoods. We will use them gently - the production doesn't call for anything that would damage them.

CONTACT savageumbrella@gmail.com if you have something that fits to lend or rent to us!
 


WANT
Theatre Unbound is in need of some gym mats (like you would use for gymnastics or wrestling) for our fall rehearsals.  August 13 - September 28. 

CONTACT Stacey at spoirier@theatreunbound.com


AVAILABLE
Walking Shadow has some lighting gear we're happy to share when we're between shows. Includes (8) Source 4 jrs, (8) 6" Fresnels, some PARs, dimmer packs, cable, and booms & bases. All Edison plugs. Small, case-by-case fee to cover lamp use.
 
CONTACT david@walkingshadowcompany.org for full inventory. Thanks to MRAC and the people of Minnesota for funding gear the community can use!
 
AVAILABLE
I have 3 freestanding pillars/columns 13' high (made out of wood and cardboard tube) that we would love to get rid of (made for a show and never used.) I can give more details if you need them.

CONTACT Tory Stewart, Workhaus Collective, vita81068@yahoo.com
 


AVAILABLE
Savage Umbrella has a ton of cinder blocks left over from our last show. I think we have, like 68, or some ridiculous amount like that.  We're happy to lend them out.

CONTACT savageumbrella@gmail.com, and we'll be in touch!


WANT
Live Action Set would like to borrow 6 uniform chairs for our next production, Basic North. Simple in design. Ideally, they are light weight (i.e. not metal) as they will be carried and dragged across the floor by the actors. The sooner we have them in our hands, the better, but a must is by June 25th.
