Your Support Makes a Dramatic Difference!

Our Sponsor-a-Seat Campaign is easy! 

Players of Utica has created this campaign to help generate funds to start construction in our mainstage theatre. Donors will be recognized by a brass nameplate permanently attached to the arm of a seat in our mainstage theatre. You can have a plaque made out in your name, the name of your group or business, or in memory of a loved one.

Seat Sponsorships will play an important role in assisting the Players of Utica with funding goals and allow us to open the mainstage theatre soon!

For your donation of $75, you will receive a nameplate and a certificate of sponsorship.
