WOS Awards Charity Stage One Launches Theatre Auction
Among the lots on offer is the chance to tread the boards alongside Mackenzie Crook and Mark Rylance in Jerusalem, an opportunity to meet the cast of Wicked, and a range of theatrical memorabilia including programmes signed by the likes of Cameron Mackintosh and David Tennant.
The auction will be held online at auction.stageone.uk.com until 24 February 2012 – five days after the results are announced at the glittering Whatsonstage.com Awards concert at the Prince of Wales Theatre.
