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

BECAUSE OF YOU, WE DID IT!

The School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts wants to thank all of our donors for making the S.I.T. campaign a success. We have raised over $100,000 thanks to you. The replacements of seats will take place this summer and we will be reaching out to everyone who purchased a seat(s) to verify the inscription(s). 

We are keeping the campaign open to provide the opportunity for those who may still want to donate or to purchase a chair (as long as seats are still available). All donations will go to replace seats and improving the theatre experience for patrons.

Seat naming 

Donate a seat in either 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. 

 

FAQ

  • What message may I have engraved? 

You may engrave any name or phrase that does not contain profanity, obscene or vulgar language and meets the character limit of 90 characters. 

  • May I split my seats between the 2 theatres?

Any single seat may be designated for a particular theatre. If you purchase two or more seats, you may select which theatre each seat should be located. 

  • Can I pick a specific seat that I like?

Seats are granted on a first-come, first-served basis but we will do our best to accommodate requests. 

  • Can I make a donation without naming a seat?

Yes. Donations of as little as $10 help contribute to the success of the campaign. Any gift of $500 or more gives you the opportunity to name a seat, but you may wish to decline the opportunity.

  • Do I have the option to name as many seats as I want?

Yes. Seats naming opportunities are $500.
