The Patrons Society

This society consists of members who are committed to bringing world-class artistic performances to Auburn University and the surrounding region. Through an investment of $100,000, individuals and members of this elite group of 20 founding members will have their name prominently displayed in the center’s majestic grand lobby. This permanent recognition will serve as a testament to the generosity and commitment of those who share our vision for providing exceptional cultural enrichment. 

Additional member benefits for two seasons of programming include:

  • Patrons Society event during the center’s grand opening show
  • Four tickets and attendance for four to pre- or post-show receptions for all shows presented by the center
  • Access to 10 discounted tickets for all shows presented by the center
  • Private dinner with Christopher Heacox, center executive director
  • Behind the scenes “hard hat” tour
  • Advance notice of tickets and season announcements
  • Designated parking

Theatre Seat Naming

We are offering an exciting opportunity to be one of the first champions of this landmark center by naming a seat with a custom plaque. Your plaque can be either in your name or to memorialize, recognize, or honor a loved one. Through a gift of $2,000, the seat plaque will be a lasting testament to your support for the arts and mark you as a dedicated member of our new performing arts center family. Your investment will make you eligible for invitations to events and early notifications about purchasing season tickets. Seat namings can be paid over a two-year period. A limited number of seats are available for seat naming. Naming a seat is not a seat reservation nor a subscription to a season. Make your gift online at
