Curtain Goes Up on Boston Court’s “Stages of Love” Online Auction

Published on Sep 3, 2020

Boston Court Pasadena, the nonprofit theater at 70 N. Mentor Ave., is holding an online auction from Sept. 7-13 to raise funds for upcoming programs, mostly virtual, in the remaining months of 2020 and into next year.

“We have a lot of virtual programming planned in the coming months and are creatively brainstorming for what 2021 will bring. But to make any of that happen, we need your support,” Boston Court officials said in a post on the theater’s website.

Called “Stages of Love,” the weeklong fundraising event goes live at 12:01 a.m. Monday, Sept. 7, and closes at 11:59 p.m. Sept. 13, according to the announcement.

The public can take part in the campaign in three ways: by bidding or donating in the online auction, with items ranging from the practical to the ridiculous; watching fun videos online each day and look back on all the fun Boston Court and its audiences have had together; or simply sharing a love of Boston Court with family and friends whether by email, social media, or telegraph.

Boston Court’s website will be posting videos from shows gone by, stories from the theater’s friends and patrons, and links to exciting items people can bid on to support the theater.

Boston Court Pasadena has set a $50,000 goal to support its planned programming.

The nonprofit has posted many of the items for the online auction, and people can preview them by visiting Most of the items on display were donated by Boston Court’s partners, including The Los Angeles County Arboretum, The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens, Bertrand’s Music, No Drama Mamah, Vroman’s Bookstore, and other Pasadena-based organizations and individuals.
