TAKE YOUR Seat in CAC's Theatre


The CAC Theatre — a cornerstone of the CAC community experience—is a reminder of CAC's long tradition of excellence and innovation in education. It is a gathering place for our greater community, providing space for dramatic and musical performances, art exhibitions, student-led events, and thought-provoking lectures.  

Our current theatre is well worn, well loved, and in need of a complete renovation. This year we invite you to help breathe new life into this space. Make a one-time donation to have your name engraved on a seat plate in the CAC Theatre. Sponsoring one of the theatre’s 521 new seats will generate funds for renovations and updates to technical equipment.

As you "take your seat" - or seats - you will become a part of both the CAC Theatre's history and its vibrant future. Every time you remember past performances, see audience members arriving, or sit in the theatre yourself, you will have the pleasure of knowing your generosity is making it possible for someone to experience the unique joy of entertainment, understanding, and self-discovery that only comes through live events at CAC.

Naming opportunities for seats are limited. Hurry to take your seat today!
