Take a Seat

For a gift of $300 or $500, you can name a seat in the YBCA Theater and support the YBCA Fund for New Performance.

Take a Seat

Your name, or the name of someone you’d like to honor, will be featured on a handsome plaque affixed to a seat in the YBCA Theater. Your generous gift to the YBCA Fund for New Performance will make a difference in the life and work of an artist. If we reach our goal of $500,000, YBCA will be able to commission one new contemporary performance work every year for the next ten years. Become a visionary—take a seat today.

Orchestra $500 per seat plaque | Rear Orchestra* $300 per seat plaque

Rear Orchestra seats are limited, so please respond quickly to guarantee your place.

Tell Your Story

When you purchase a seat, we invite you, if you like, to share a story about how the arts have affected your life.

Share a personal story about a meaningful experience at a performance, or pay tribute to a family member, friend or hero. Have you ever felt transported by a dance, moved to tears by a piece of music, provoked by a performance artist into thinking about something in a whole new way? Why do you love performance—what do you get out of an evening in the theater? We want to know. Stories can be submitted with your mail order or via email to Emily Lakin, Development Manager at elakin@ybca.org.
