For the past two seasons Milwaukee Repertory Theater has been warehousing costumes, hats, shoes, accessories, fabric, props, set decoration, furniture, draperies, surplus tools, materials, stage equipment and specialty items from past productions and THERE IS NO MORE STORAGE SPACE LEFT. Sound and light equipment, scenic and architectural elements, tools, set decoration, props from shows you know and love and a lot of other weird wonderful stuff at Garage Sale Prices. We’re not making money here; we’re picking up real estate. Everything is for sale at “Get This Stuff Out of Here” prices on Saturday, April 20 from 10am – 2pm in the Paint Shop at Milwaukee Repertory Theater (108 E Wells).

Items of note include: Furniture and lots of snowy Christmas trees from Christmas at Pemberley, glorious draperies and swags from The Chinese Lady, super modern table from Junk, baskets from Guards at the Taj, American flag window shades from All Night Strut, the Wingfield family couch from The Glass Menagerie, Christmas finery from A Christmas Carol and Christmas at Pemberley, light fixtures from the Stackner Cabaret’s past life, set dressing, book cases, furniture, hand props, a couple of spinet pianos, scenic “stained glass “ church windows from A Christmas Carol and Doubt, huge sparkly blue stage curtain from Dream Girls, newel posts, stair spindles and doors from many past productions, and so very much more!

You could be the answer to the age-old question, “Who would buy that?”

The sale is one fabulous day only, Saturday, April 20 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the Milwaukee Rep Paint Shop, 108 East Wells St. Get there early for best selection.

Items will not be held for pickup later in the day without full payment. All paid-for merchandise must be removed from the Rep by the end of the sale. (We’re not selling this stuff off so we can keep storing it, after all.) Everything is sold in “As Is” condition.

Side effects can include irate partners, awestruck friends, frightened pets, and confused bystanders.
