In honor of our 25th anniversary—our Silver Jubilee—we are mixing things up a little with an online auction! We’ve curated an exciting selection of items for you to bid on, which celebrate the history of Book-It, as well as the first show of our anniversary season, I Am of Ireland.

As you may know, ticket sales cover only about 54% of Book-It’s production costs, so your support is essential to making our work possible. This year we are working with eBay to create our first-ever online auction; it will be live October 3 through October 12. All proceeds benefit our mainstage programming.

[medium]Auction items include:[/medium]


 the handcrafted New York City backdrops from our record-breaking production of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay


an Irish Tea package complete with an assortment of Irish teas and vintage tea cups


an overnight stay on a houseboat on Lake Union (live out your own version of Sleepless in Seattle!)


an exclusive invitation to hear Garth Stein, author of the blockbuster The Art of Racing in the Rain, read from his new novel, A Sudden Light, at a special Book-It event with an exclusive group of Book-It VIPs

Mark October 3 on your calendar, check out the complete list of Silver Jubilee Online Auction items, and, as always, thank you for supporting Book-It Repertory Theatre.

Let the fun begin!
