Presented by Communication In Action

Ladies and gentlemen, ready your chequebooks, re-mortgage your houses and join us for the auction of the year!

You will have the chance to bid on a range of magnificent and rarely sighted collector items: Learn the dark history of the gun Roxy used to kill Fred Casely. Come and try a vintage jacket from the Rydell High School sports team. Feast your eyes on the original chimney sweeps broom used by Bert in 1910 – still in remarkably good condition for a working broom.

Do you fancy a piece of Pride Rock? Perhaps you’re more interested in taking home Oliver’s original workhouse bowl from the 1800’s? Or is your mantelpiece missing a magical lamp?

All this and more will be available for your purchasing pleasure. With songs from the Lion KingChicago, Oliver, Grease, Mary Poppins and Aladdin, we look forward to tempting you to raise your paddles for a chance to take home one of these exciting items.

Join us for the opportunity to dance in your seats while participating in this remarkable sale. No doubt it will be an auction to remember!

Performed by students of Communication In Action.
