The Salem Hills drama department is looking for prop and costume donations, as well as sponsors for their upcoming production of Beauty and the Beast.

“We have a limited budget and are looking for items that might be laying around in the storage rooms of this community,” Director Jan Hunsaker, said in the recent school newsletter.

The need fabric (of any kind and length) for costumes. “We need to create about 40 'townspeople' costumes, and those can be colorful and fun." If you have fabric laying around that you aren’t going to use, consider donating it to the theatre department.

Hunsaker said, “It’s a great tax write-off and I will give you a receipt for your donation.”

The department would like to rent five backdrops for the play but the total cost will be over $2500. Consequently, they are also looking for advertising sponsors. "Product placement" is available for businesses.

"Imagine the name of your business showing up on a dancing dinner plate or singing teapot," Hunsaker said. She said the options are endless, comic, and "exactly what we need to put on a spectacular show for the community."
