Tom Hanks Auctioning Off Broadway Role on eBay

Ever wanted to be on Broadway? How about star alongside Tom Hanks? Well, your dream job is here. Tom Hanks is auctioning off a role in the Shakespearean adaptation of The Comedy of Errors.

The point of the auction is to raise money for the Shakespeare Festival/LA, of which Tom and his wife Rita Wilson are co-chairs. The organization raises money and awareness for the theater community. SF/LA creates high quality and professional community-based productions whose proceeds go to summer youth employment and enrichment.

And each spring, some of the finest actors donate their time to participate in a staged reading. This year’s cast members include Martin Short, Christina Applegate, Peter Graves, Arte Johnson, Shirley Jones, and of course Tom and Rita.

The winner will also take part in rehearsals, get a chance to party at the post-show VIP bash, and take a group photo that will be signed by the cast. The auction will end on May 11th.

The Comedy of Errors takes place at the Geffen Playhouse in LA on May 18th. Click click here to place your bid and star alongside Tom Hanks!
