A naming plate with the message, name, or logo of your choice will be placed on the top of the seat back as special recognition for your gift.

Seat sponsorship is not a reservation of the seat itself for future events. Season tickets are purchased separately. Whenever possible, seat sponsors will be given a first right to reserve tickets for the seat they have selected.
Seat sponsorship is a naming opportunity for capital expenditures and is not a reservation of the seat itself for programming. Whenever possible, however, seat sponsors will be given a first right to reserve tickets for the seat they have selected. Specific seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but the HCHTA reserves the right to change seat sponsorship location (within the same sponsorship level) due to construction changes or seating reconfiguration. Nameplates will become part of the rich history of Peoples Bank Theatre.
Seat Sponsor Pre-Sale Ticket Opportunities
As a seat sponsor, you have first opportunity to purchase subscriptions to our Spotlight Series events and specific series tickets in advance of general public sales. Seat sponsors will be given a limited pre-sale time–typically one week—to make ticket purchases for their sponsored seats. After the specified pre-sale, sales will be open to annual members and the general public. Once sales open to the general public, seat sponsors may also purchase additional tickets beyond those available for their specific, sponsored seats.
Outside Promoters, Rentals, Add-on Shows, and Unassigned Seating Events
There are times when an outside promoter or rental party wants complete control of the theatre. In these cases, we cannot guarantee seat sponsor pre-sale.
Shows may be booked after the announcement of the Spotlight Series or other event series. Whenever possible, seat sponsor pre-sale will be made available. However, in some instances, the timing of the booking or terms of the artist’s contract may preclude the theatre from offering such pre-sale opportunities.
General admission and cabaret events are also unavailable for seat sponsor pre-sale, due to the nature of ticketing and seating for such events.
Pre-Sale Notification for Seat Sponsors
For Spotlight Series events—and other events when seat sponsors pre-sale is made available—the theatre will send notification by email and, if possible U.S. mail, approximately one-to-two weeks prior to general public sales. These communications will specify the events available for pre-sale and the seat sponsor response deadline, after which sales will be open to the general public. It is the responsibility of the seat sponsor to exercise their ticket purchase privileges within the pre-sale period and to ensure that the theatre has up-to-date contact information for these communications. Once the pre-sale period ends, any and all unsold tickets for sponsored seats are released for sale to annual members and the general public.
