The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts is taking a unique approach to raising money for its upcoming show, Singin' In the Rain. For anywhere from $10 - $50 you can "sponsor" a prop in the production. Cosmos' gal, a cake, a camera or even the wall - the choice is yours. In return you'll be listed online as an official member of the creative team, and can have the pleasure of pointing to someone's umbrella during the show and saying "hey, that's MY umbrella!" No word on if there's a limit to how many people can sponsor a single prop.
