Amana - The Iowa Theatre Artists Company (ITAC) will hold its sixth annual Garage Sale AMANiA (and Wee Flea Market) on Saturday, March 28. The hours of the sale will be from 8 am until 4 pm at the ITAC building in Amana.
“Each year just gets better and better,” states Co-Producer, Meg Merckens. “We hope to fill the hall with a huge number of area sellers, as in years past, and to have several hundred attend. The record has been over 500 coming through the doors. We hope that we can break that record this year!”
For information on renting tables and selling garage sale items, please call 319-622-3222 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tables are still available. The sale will take place downstairs in the dance hall and lobby and upstairs in the theatre lobby. A $1.00 admission fee will be charged to attend this large indoor sale on Saturday, March 28. All proceeds from the admission price and the rental of tables will go toward the fundraising goal of the not-for-profit Iowa Theatre Artists Company. Individual sellers are responsible for their own sales.
Merckens adds, “This year, the Clear Creek Amana Color Guard will once again be included in the day’s event and will be fundraising for their organization with a bake, beverage and lunch sale. This selling event has always been a fun way to raise money for some very worthy organizations and projects as well as offer some terrific bargains for area residents.”
The Iowa Theatre Artists Company is a small, professional not-for-profit theatre operating as a 501(c)3 organization since 2008. 2015 will mark ITAC’s eighth year of producing live theatre in Eastern Iowa, and its seventh year in the former Barn Restaurant in the heart of Amana. Though co-producers Tom Johnson and Meg Merckens have announced their retirement from producing full seasons of theatrical productions, ITAC will continue to offer special projects and workshops in the coming year, as well as presenting musical concerts and offering their space for traveling theatrical troupes. The building also serves as an event center for wedding receptions, graduation and birthday parties and other special occasions. For more information, visit their website.
