Save Your Seat! @ State Theatre of Ithaca

The Coronavirus Pandemic has put a great strain on our not-for-profit Theatre – without show revenue to sustain us, we are looking at a $160,000 deficit for this fiscal year. That’s where you come in. For just $100 per seat, our Save Your Seat campaign allows you to inscribe a plaque placed on a seat within the Theatre, offering a commemorative way to help close the gap the pandemic has created.

Celebrate a loved one, honor an arts enthusiast or give a gift to the person who has everything. Saving Your Seat with a personalized plaque not only guarantees a visible legacy in our beautiful, historic space, it will also directly help us remain sustainable through this unprecedented shutdown.
