The Bonifas Arts Center makes it easy to surprise someone you love (or someone who loves live theatre) with a unique gift. The Bonifas is offering theatre patrons or those who know and care about them the opportunity to purchase a brushed finish, brass plaque with an engraved “In Honor of (name)” or “In Memory of (name)” dedication on it and installed on a Bonifas Theatre seat.
When you make a donation of $100 or more, the Bonifas will provide you with a card that you can give to the honored person or the family of the remembered person and arrange to purchase, engrave and install the dedication plaque. The plaques will then be installed before the next musical in March.
You can even indicate your seat preference, but seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Bonifas will do their best to accommodate your request; however, they reserve the right to assign seats.
Funds raised through this campaign will be used to help restore the additional Bonifas funds that were used to install the new fly system and curtains in the theatre last year. A solid base of funds allows the Bonifas to continue to invest in the theatre and building infrastructure. When purchasing tickets for future Bonifas productions, you are welcome to request your dedicated seat.
However, because the "Take a Seat" campaign does not include a personal seat license, the Bonifas cannot guarantee that the seat(s) you have named will be available for you when you attend ticketed performances. The inscription you designate will remain on your Bonifas Theatre seat(s) until such time as they are replaced with new ones, a minimum of eight years. At that time, seats will once again be sold. When that happens, and to honor the original seat holders, a plaque will be designed and displayed in or near the Bonifas Theatre.
If you are interested in the “Take a Seat” campaign, you can pick up a form in the Bonifas lobby or contact Sue at the Bonifas at 786-3833 or send email.
