Dear Imagination Theater Supporters, Sponsors, and Friends:

Imagination Theater is excited to hold our fourth annual Silent and Live Auction, An Affair to Remember on Friday, August 19 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at a new location—the Smith Flat House, located on Smith Flat Road. Please join us for a wedding themed evening of food, wine, and desserts from local businesses. The reception features the cast from our September production, Father of the Bride.

We want to make this event as successful as possible and with your help it can happen. This is our major fundraiser so your support is greatly appreciated. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 corporation and our tax I.D. # is 680448569. Your financial support or product donation is a tax deduction. The money raised will help toward our outreach programs in the community as well as workshops and theater improvements.

We also hope you will attend and bring your friends and family. Grab that bridesmaid dress or tuxedo in your closet and join us for this fun-filled event. We have already started receiving some unique and interesting auction items, and we look forward to including your donation in the mix!

All contributors will be given recognition in the auction program. Thank you in advance for your help. We hope to see you on August 19. If you have any questions related to this event, please contact Lanny at (530) 903-6361.

Supporting roles open for adults of all ages, with two roles (one man and one woman) for adults over 50, and one child role for a girl aged 8-12. Strong Tap and Jazz dancers needed for chorus parts.

HGTV Casting You and Your Living Room (for your friends in LA)

CASTING: Fun, energetic, creative homeowners or renters* to appear on an HGTV design series (mid-20's - mid-40's)! Submit, asap!

Additional Notes:
Homeowners must be willing to appear on camera & provide strong opinions about their likes/dislikes as it relates to design. The show features imaginative room makeovers reflecting a variety of styles that appeal to design-savvy viewers. Our designers & contractors "do" the work. Homeowners do NOT pay for anything! The professionally designed room will include thousands of dollars in materials & labor. This isn't about shopping showrooms, but it IS about getting a cool, sophisticated look that is customized to the homeowners needs, personalities and tastes.

It'd be great to have a few pieces of furniture to work with! We'd like to feature favorite items (special to you) or something personal you want to work into the room!

Best wishes!
