Triad Stage is holding a warehouse sale.
Although Triad Stage is calling it a sale, the announcement on its Facebook page states, “MOST ITEMS ARE FREE! TAKE WHAT YOU LIKE!”
The three-day sale is being held at the Nussbaum Center for Entrepreneurship at 1451 S. Elm-Eugene St. The sale or giveaway will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, April 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 22 and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 23.
Triad Stage announced on Friday, April 14 that it was “pausing” its operations. The production of “The Cake” that was scheduled to open at the downtown theater at the beginning of May has been cancelled.
However, according to a post on the Triad Stage Facebook page, the warehouse sale does not mean that Triad Stage is closing down and not just pausing operations.
The post titled “A NOTE FROM TRIAD STAGE” states, “Nothing should be read into our upcoming warehouse sale, as nothing has been decided yet by the board. We are clearing out unneeded things / space. It has been on the to-do list for a while now, but with non-essential operations on hold, this is the first time our staff has had the bandwidth to do it.
“We appreciate your outpouring of support.”
Items listed for the sale include metal shelving, ladders, tools, costumes, wood platforms, backdrops, miscellaneous hand props and set pieces.
For the items that aren’t free, Triad Stage will accept cash or credit cards with the caveat that you have to haul off what you buy.
Also, while Triad Stage has paused its own operations, rentals of the space are still up and running. This weekend, “Eduardo’s Noche Flemenca Comes to Greensboro,” will be in the Upstage Cabaret.
Triad Stage was closed for two years because of COVID-19 restrictions and reopened in 2022.
