Seat Sponsorships

Seat sponsorships are a way to support the ongoing restoration and maintenance of the Colonial Theatre while memorializing your loved ones, friends, and family. Sponsor an aisle or row seat in the 1903 Colonial Theatre auditorium through our ongoing Take-a-Seat campaign. You can also currently sponsor a seat in the future Experimental or Luxe Theatres being constructed through our current building expansion.

Take-a-Seat Campaign

Become a permanent part of the Colonial Theatre through our Take-A-Seat Campaign. The campaign was initiated to 2003 to fund the purchase of new seats for the 1903 auditorium. Seat sponsorships contribute to our capital fund, which supports maintenance of the Colonial Theatre. You can “purchase’ an aisle seat for $500 and a row seat for $250. Your seat will have a brass plaque to commemorate the donor, which you may personalize.

Please note that your gift to the Take-a-Seat campaign does not guarantee your placement in this seat for any/every performance or film.

If you’d like, you can purchase your seat online. Or, click here to download information about the Take a Seat Campaign which you can fill out and mail in to us if you prefer to pay by check.
