The S.I.T. Campaign: Seats in Theatres

The S.I.T. (Seats in Theatres) Campaign

The School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts needs your help to replace all seats in both the Quirk and Sponberg Theatres. We are seeking to raise a minimum of $200,000 between September, 2019 and August, 2020. 

You can help us reach our goal by making a gift for individual or multiple seats in one or both theatres. Or you can make a contribution of any size to support this important cause. 

Seat naming 

Donate a seat in the Quirk or Sponberg Theatre for only $500 per seat. 

Every seat donated will receive a personalized nameplate on its armrest. Purchase a seat for yourself; to celebrate your student; to memorialize a loved one; to honor the legacy of a mentor/professor; or even in the name of a group, organization, or company. The choice is yours!

Donate

Cannot afford to purchase an entire seat? Donations of any amount will assist us in reaching our goal. Remember, every little bit helps!

Can I pick my seat?

Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We will do our best to accommodate your requested seating location. 

Will I be able to sit in my seat(s) at performances?

The S.I.T. Campaign does not include a seat license. We therefore cannot guarantee that named seat(s) will be available for personal use during ticketed performances.

Pledge option

If you would like to make a pledge commitment, please send an email to Kathy Stacey at kstacey@emich.edu. Or click here to print your own pledge commitment form.
