We invite you to take part in an exciting opportunity to support the Appalachian in an affordable, meaningful way by participating in our Take-A-Seat Campaign. Your donation to sponsor a seat will give you the chance to be a part of the Appalachian Theatre Grand Opening this fall and leave a legacy for generations to come!
Funds raised through seat sponsorships will play a leading role in equipping and operating the theatre during its startup year. Help us bring great entertainment to the region!
Seat naming is a great way to:
· Honor a loved one
· Give a unique gift
· Commemorate a special occasion like an anniversary or the reopening of the ATHC!
· Mark the arrival of a child/grandchild
· Share a favorite quotation
Be serious, poetic, sentimental, or clever—just be a part of the future of this beloved theater. Starting at $500, your name or message will be elegantly engraved on a brass plaque affixed to the armrest of a theatre seat for the life of the seat.
Take-A-Seat today and join the family of dream makers who believe the Appalachian Theatre will make the High Country a better place to live, work and play! We look forward to welcoming you to the family!

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is my contribution tax-deductible?
A: Yes! It is 100% tax-deductible.
Q: Am I guaranteed to be able to sit in the seat I dedicate?
A: Tickets to all performances are sold first-come, first-served, so unfortunately we cannot guarantee that you will be able to sit in “your” seat. However, if your seat is available, we will do our best to accommodate your request to sit there.
Q: I’ve sent in my ORDER FORM. Now what?
A: There is a priority signup window for current donors through July 14 and open signup begins July 15. A member of the Appalachian staff will contact you to help you choose your seat(s). We will send a proof of the nameplate for your final approval before having it engraved.
Q: What will my inscription look like?
A: Inscriptions can be up to two (2) lines of type & twenty (20) characters per line including spaces. Donor plaques are 7/8" x 2-1/2" solid brass engraved with up to two lines of centered type and installed in the seat armrest. Management reserves the right to reject inscriptions deemed unreasonable or inappropriate.
