Every seat has a story
Since our inaugural performance on June 24th 1993, these chairs have played their role for over 7,000 performances.
Now in our 25th season, over 1.3 million people have enjoyed dramas, musicals, comedies and mysteries. That’s a lot of bot-toms, and as one would expect the seats are in need of some TLC!
Here’s the plan for restoration
These venerable chairs still have lots of life left in them. In fact, we think that by replacing the internal cushioning, these chairs may well last another 25 years. The mechanics and structural parts are in good condition and with some spot repairs – the up-holstery is fine.
A charitable donation of $225 will sponsor restoration of one of our theatre chairs, while $425 will restore a pair of chairs. Your gift provides vital support to the theatre and will be recognized by a personalized silver plaque affixed to the bottom of each seat that you sponsor. As most chairs were initially sponsored in 1993, the plaque for the restoration will be mounted right below the original. Your name will also appear on the campaign seating chart in the lobby.
