We saved you a seat . . .

. . .Now Put Your Name On It!

The engraving you select can celebrate your family, friends, or business, commemorate a special occasion, or honor the memory of a loved one. It's the perfect gift for an arts lover or the person who has everything.

You can dedicate a seat:

  • as an individual, family, or group
  • with the name of your business or organization
  • to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion
  • to honor a graduating UMBC student
  • with your favorite quotation

Plaques are ¾ " by 2 ¼ " and are limited to 3 lines, with 26 characters per line, including spaces and punctuation.

See a sample engraving here.

Please note that seat locations will be determined by UMBC staff, who will notify you of the location. Seat sponsors must still purchase tickets to any performance at the theatre, and are not guaranteed seating in the chairs bearing their names.

All contributions are administered by the UMBC Foundation for the benefit of UMBC.

How can you help?

Your $500 gift to name a seat in the new proscenium theatre directly benefits the arts and humanities at UMBC. In return for your contribution, a plaque engraved with your name (or text of your choice) will adorn a seat in the theatre or concert hall.
