Our 50th Anniversary Theater Dedication to You

Take Your Appalshop Seat! image

Build Appalshop's 50th Fund by Taking a Seat!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Besides celebrating with you, a big goal of Appalshop's 50th Anniversary is to build support for the next 50 years of art & media making in the mountains. As you know, this takes infrastructure investment. We have a vision for Appalshop grounds, from our new Solar Stage, to artist studios and critical upgrades to our training facilities. Proceeds from Theater Seat Dedications will seed our 50th Building & Grounds Reserve Fund.

This is your chance to engrave a piece of Appalshop's living history and legacy with name(s) of your choice on Appalshop Theater seat(s)! Whether to recognize a key partner in Appalshop's journey, our own part in this fifty year adventure, or to honor loved ones we've lost, this is an opportunity to create a brick & mortar snapshot of all those who built Appalshop.

The seat(s) of your choice (when possible) will be personalized, up to 40 characters, with a silver plaque centered on the back of each seat.

We'll unveil the new Theater additions at a free and public Appalshop 50th event to culminate this theater fundraising effort and dedicate the intimate Appalshop Theater in a special 50th ceremony. We hope you can join us, Friday, December 6, 2019, whether you purchase a theater seat or not!

Please note that purchasing a seat does not provide exclusive use, indefinately. However, we’d be happy to reserve your special seat if given enough advance notice. Maybe you don’t really want to own a seat? We realize there’s a lot of responsibility that comes with it ... the cleaning, the repair, the making sure it’s always in use. No, we’re kidding, we’ll take care of all that. But, seriously, if you’d rather not buy a seat, please consider making a donation. A contribution of any size will help keep the world-renowned Appalshop buzzing and blooming. Thanks!
