04/07/2016

Actors' Summit Theater is "auditioning" some set decoration help.

We're looking for a PORCH--Glider ; circa 1930's to 40's ;
metal frame ---rust is fine--- it needs to "swing";
whatever color---shy of--NEON anything-- is okay.

I also need a wooden row boat---it will NOT be in water;
no one will sit in it...it's "set decoration. "

we can pick up. message me....or call me at 330-374-7568
