ONLINE Auction Fundraiser – our Silent Auction has moved online!

There’s something for everyone at our silent auction featuring items from businesses, and craftspeople from around the state.

Vacation trips, gift certificates, coveted products and crafts—our silent auction has it all, thanks to the generous support of businesses and individuals in our community.

JUNE 10-26 The Public Theatre will present an ONLINE Silent Auction and we are inviting you to be a part of it!

This year we hope to be able to feature a selection of items in the lobby during the run of Be Here Now, June 17-26, as well.  But patrons loved the convenience of our past Online Auctions and bidding will start on June 10th.

The Silent Auction is our single largest fundraiser. Support The Public Theatre by donating an item or service to be auctioned off, or bidding on an item!

Boston Opera House Bus Trip

This summer you can take a trip to Boston to see Wicked | July 10, 2022

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin – smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
