Name a Seat

Adding the name of a loved one to the permanent history of the magnificent Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center is a unique way to pay tribute to a family member, treasured friend, or beloved pet.

Permanently named seats are available in every section of the theater and may cost as little as $500.  An engraved brass plaque will be affixed to the arm of your chosen seat(s). Seat pledges can be paid in installments over time, and are 100% tax deductible.

“I am delighted to have named seats in this splendid theater, and hope that others join me to ensure the future of this wonderful cultural center. It is an invaluable addition to life here.” — Roberta Silman
