Title: Can you help the Corbett Children's Theater?

Corbett Children's Theater is in the midst of producing Oliver! and could use some help. We are looking for a coffin for the undertaker scene. Nothing fancy, just an old fashioned pine box or Dracula type. Anyone happen to have an old Haunted House prop or anything? It needs to be fairly sturdy. We also looking for wooden barrels (like wine barrels?) wooden bowls, a long toasting fork, a tea cart, a sliver (looking) tea set, metal tankards, an old fashioned birdcage (preferably with a post and hook), lots of fake fruit and flowers, wooden buckets and a knife grinding contraption (rolls like a wheelbarrow, with a spinning stone grinder).

Our set designers mom became very ill a few weeks ago, and just this last week she passed away. Understandably, he is not available to us right now - but with the show just weeks away we are scrambling, not just for the coffin prop, but for our set in general!

Say a prayer, 57 student actors and 10 student techs working hard on this show, and there are days where it just feels a little overwhelming!
