THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE IS THE ONE WITH YOUR NAME ON IT!

The State Theatre of Ithaca is launching the SAVE YOUR SEAT campaign, a new public fundraising initiative to help close the budget gap the Coronavirus shutdown has created. The not-for-profit organization that owns and operates Tompkins County’s last remaining historic performing arts venue has had all of their live performances postponed or canceled since the middle of March. As a result, the theater has lost 100% of its show-related revenue.

The State Theatre of Ithaca is inviting their friends, patrons, partners and supporters to take part in an exciting opportunity to support the historic venue in an affordable, meaningful way. For just $100 per seat, the SAVE YOUR SEAT initiative allows anyone to have a personalized plaque affixed to a seat in their honor, offering a visible way to commemorate their support of this vital arts venue.

The SAVE YOUR SEAT – “Giving Tuesday” Benefit Concert will feature performances from a wide range of nationally acclaimed artists that have a deep connection to Ithaca and The State Theatre. With assistance from their Exclusive Talent Buyer, DSP Shows, they have already lined up distinguished artists such as Graham Nash, The Avett Brothers, Keb Mo, Béla Fleck, Margo Price, The Wood Brothers, Sam Harris of X Ambassadors and more. The free, online event sponsored by CFCU Community Credit Union will stream simultaneously on The State Theatre of Ithaca’s Facebook page as well as their YouTube channel.
