Replacement Seating, New Layout!
As many of you are aware, at the end of the 2011 season, we advertised new seating with a new layout to start the 2012 season. (We had a seat naming campaign where many of you donated money to have your name engraved to a golden plate and put on the seats.)
Due to additional unforeseen construction and safety concerns & restrictions, we are fairly delayed and A LOT under budget on the project.
For that we would like to both apologize and ask for your help once again. Our budget has increased due to the overwhelming cost of a contractor to be paid by the hour to complete the project in a completely mishap-proof way. (Some of you may be familiar and can relate with these types of expenses, especially if you own a business where the public are affected by faulty construction should anything go wrong). These rates are far out of the range of the budget we set forth on this project. In fact if all 100 seats had a gold plaque, it would not cover the total cost of this project. WE ARE DETERMINED to see this project out to completion even though we have hit many road blocks along the way. Any monetary donation you can make towards this project or the theatre in general is greatly appreciated.
There is still opportunity to buy a name plaque for yourself or in honor of someone else. You could even get a group or former cast together. All donations to this cause are tax-deductible. We have already put some of the donors plaques on the seats even though the new layout is not complete.
We would like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation by thanking the following seat sponsors for your donation and support in this campaign thus far:
Jamie Howard & Kirk Lawrence
Lorri And Yoni Elia
John H. Bonslaver Sr.

Here are the details:
»» Money must be paid before queue number is assigned.
»» When the new seating is brought over from Kutztown U. and installed, we will email a map of the new seat configuration. If you do not have email, this will be mailed to you.
»» We will then contact people individually in the queue order, using the contact info on the application forms.
»» We will initially contact you by phone and by email, and ask you for your seat choice and for two alternate choices. We will give you a “reply-by” date.
»» We will assign your seat to you using your first choice, if available, and then moving on to your second and third choice, if not.
»» Once we have confirmed your seat choice, we will mail you a confirmation of your choice and the wording on your plaque.
»» If we have not received a reply to our initial request for seat choices within five (5) business days of our contacting you, we reserve the right to skip you, go on to the next person in the queue, and either reinsert you in the queue or give you your seat choice, if available, at our discretion when you do contact us.
»» As needed, we may email/mail updated seat configuration maps with already-claimed seats marked, as the queue winds down.
