A Game of Musical Chairs

The Women’s Board of Beck Center invites the community to play A Game of Musical Chairs. WB/BC volunteers have been busy for months refinishing and intricately hand-painting gently used chairs, stools and a children’s desk as part of their Painted Furniture Project fundraiser. These unique creations, based on musicals performed at Beck Center, are now on display around town during the month of April and will be raffled off at the Women’s Board Victorian Tea Party on Sunday, May 5 at Beck Center for the Arts. All raffle proceeds benefit Beck Center’s quality theater productions and arts education programs.

The chairs are currently rotating between 20 different area businesses throughout the month like a game of musical chairs. Raffle tickets are $5 each or six for $25 and may be purchased at these participating locations:

  • Buckeye Beer Engine
  • Carol Lynn's Salon Plus
  • Crafty Goodness
  • Dirty Town Guitar and Amps
  • Geiger's Clothing & Sports
  • Goddess Blessed
  • Holistic Lakewood
  • Landfall Travel
  • Lion & Blue

  • Metropolitan Home Design
  • Paisley Monkey
  • The Root Café
  • Rozi's Wine House

The Women’s Board of Beck Center would like to thank all of the participating businesses for their support of this fundraising project and encourage residents to shop local! Click here for addresses of participating locations. Raffle tickets are also available at Beck Center Customer Service.

Chair designs are inspired by past Beck Center productions. The first in the series, the “Joseph” chair, which featured a colorful rainbow design based on the hit musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, was raffled off at the Mayor’s Ball this past November and raised over $500. The Beck Center Women’s Board hopes to match that amount when it raffles off each of the following five furniture pieces: a bright red and sunny yellow “Annie” chair (left), a chocolate-colored “Willy Wonka” chair, the 1950s themed “Marvelous Wonderettes” chair with a custom-printed fabric cushion, a beautiful blue “Spring Awakening” stool (shown above), and an Elle-pink “Legally Blonde” children’s desk (law books and all).
