Center Stage auction to benefit theater

Arts Notes

February 16, 1997|By Karin Remesch | Karin Remesch,CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The audition notices in Sunday's Arts section listed an incorrect telephone number for information on the Young Victorian Theatre Company's July production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance." It should have read (410) 659-1308.

The Sun regrets the error.

Tickets to Orioles and Ravens games, airline bargains, accommodations in Tobago, Aruba and Toronto, city vacations, Bermuda cruises and lunches with celebrities are just a few of the more than 700 items going on the auction block next Sunday to benefit Center Stage.

Presented by WBAL Radio and The Sun, the 20th anniversary of the auction begins at 8 a.m. and runs to midnight.


The 16-hour nonstop on-air bidding on WBAL Radio last year raised nearly $150,000 for the nonprofit professional theater, bringing the 19-year auction total to more than $1.5 million.

A complete list of auction items will be published in The Sun next Sunday. For more information, call (410) 685-3200.
