Name A Seat


The Phillip England Center for the Performing Arts is in need of a total replacement and upgrade of the sound system within the theater. The estimates have ranged from $125,000 to $150,000. One way to raise these funds is through this "Name A Seat" program of donations. If all seats are named, we can meet this goal.

By naming a seat at the Phillip England Center for the Performing Arts, you make a lasting impression and support your regional performing arts center.  For a one-time, tax-deductible contribution of $250 we will engrave the inscription of your choice on a name plate on the arm of one or more of the 424 seats. 

Seats are assigned beginning with the first row in each section, or you can indicate the section or exact seat(s) you wish to name (subject to availability). All orders are processed on a first-come basis. Naming a seat does not reserve the use of the seat(s) for ticketed performance. Your name plate remains in place for the life of the seat, making this an essentially permanent naming opportunity.

You can name your seat(s) in any way you like, but here are some suggestions:

  • Place your own name on a seat as a statement of involvement and support of the arts center

  • Place the name of your business or organization on a seat to demonstrate corporate support

  • Name a seat in honor of friends, family, teachers, ministers -- even your pets!

  • Name a seat in memory of a loved one

  • Name a seat as a unique gift for that hard-to-buy for someone
