Ladysmith Little Theatre raising money at weekend garage sale

Find a unique Hallowe'en costume at the Ladysmith Little Theatre garage sale this Saturday (Oct. 20).

Looking for a unique Hallowe’en costume?

The Ladysmith Players Society is hoping you will look no further than the Ladysmith Little Theatre.

The society is hosting a fundraising garage sale this Saturday (Oct. 20), featuring costumes, props, furniture and odds and ends.

“Some of the props, as you can imagine, are quite interesting,” said David Brown, marketing director with the Ladysmith Players Society.

The garage sale will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ladysmith Little Theatre at 4985 Christie Rd.

The Ladysmith Players Society is raising money to keep the Ladysmith Little Theatre in the community.

“We have to raise a lot of money,” said Brown.

The Ladysmith Players Society submitted an offer to School District 68 to purchase the property at 4985 Christie Rd., and the school district is currently considering the offers that came in. If the society’s offer is successful, it will need to raise $150,000 in five years.

Brown hopes to see many people come to the garage sale to support community theatre and to see the old Diamond School, which was built in 1912.

“If they come to the garage sale, the bonus is they get to see the theatre as well and see what’s been done to the old school,” he said. “While they are there, they will get a taste of the set for our next play.”
