Theater Seat Campaign

TheaterOptionalHero 2

Please take your seat!

We need your help to refurbish our theater seats. Since its opening in 1997, over 3 million people have passed through the doors of the Hopkins Center for the Arts. Many of these patrons have attended plays, concerts, meetings or other events in the theater. After nearly 20 years of use, the theater seats are showing their age. Many have been repeatedly repaired but are literally reaching the breaking point. The cost of replacing over 700 theater seats is substantial - we need your help.

Name a Seat

Now you can commemorate your family, your business, or a loved one when you “name” a seat. Your gift of only $250 honors your memory for decades to come! Commemorations will be engraved onto a metal donor plaque on a seat as well as listed in the lobby - and will continue to acknowledge your generosity for the next 12 to 15 years.

How to Make a Donation

To make this special gift, send your check or credit card information along with a copy of the Seat Naming donation form (PDF) to the Center. Thank you for considering this once-in-15-years request.

If you have any questions please email Lynn Anderson or call at 952-548-6487.

Tax Deductible

Your contribution is tax deductible as allowed by law. 

Seat Ownership

Naming a seat does not in any way apply ownership of that seat. You are not guaranteed to be seated in the named seat when attending events in the theater.
