You don't have to be a performer to play a starring role at the
Mayo Performing Arts Center

The Seat Campaign offers you the chance to leave a lasting legacy and play an important role in enhancing your community’s way of life.

We have 1300 ways to honor that special person in your life.

Maintain the Dream
Donations to “Your Seat in the Spotlight” will fund ongoing Community Theatre renovations and future capital projects.  These contributions helped us complete the Balcony Lobby Renovations in spring 2011 and will continue to support the Lobby Expansion Campaign.

We Saved You a Seat. Now put YOUR name on it.

Take “Your Seat in the Spotlight,” and enjoy having your name, or that person you wish to honor, laser engraved on a plaque on the armrest of an elegant seat.

You can name one seat or an entire row and pledge your payment over time. When you sponsor a seat, we will acknowledge your gift to the recipient of your choice. Seat donations are 100% tax-deductible as allowed by law.  

Plaques are engraved metal and may include up to three lines of up to 15 characters each for 45 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

Seat Chart Gold - $2,500 (orchestra seats GCA through T)

Silver $1,500 (Orchestra seats U through HH, Balcony seats A through E)

Bronze - $500 (Balcony seats F through K)

We will honor all seat requests on a first-come, first-served basis. Click the seating chart to the right to view seat-naming options and those that have been reserved. Current seat sponsors can see which seats they have named by clicking on their seat location.

Note: Seat sponsors must still purchase tickets to any performance at the theatre.  Seat name recognition does not guarantee use of that particular seat for future performances.
