Deadline Extended: Name a Seat in the New MCC Theatre by March 22 for a Chance to Win Tickets to “Hamilton!”

Celebrate our VAPA students and the new MCC Theatre!  Educating future communication and performing arts professionals requires facilities and technology that reflect real-life workplaces. MCC’s newly renovated theatre offers an opportunity for alumni, faculty, friends and students to support the Visual and Performing Arts Department (VAPA) by purchasing a personalized nameplate for one of the new theatre seats. In addition to community members seeing your name or your group’s name on a seat, your gift will help the MCC Foundation raise funds, on behalf of VAPA, to update essential technology and equipment in campus art and production studios and computer labs, as well as the Mercer Art Gallery. Personalizing a theatre seat now celebrates both the new theatre and the success of future MCC students.

Name a seat in the new MCC Theatre!  The MCC Foundation is presenting two simple and convenient options for naming your seat in the fabulous new Theatre.  Use payroll deduction giving to make your pledge today! 

*       Lower level seats: $10.42 per pay period ($10.42 x 48 pay periods = $500).   
*       Upper level seats: $7.30 per pay period ($7.30 x 48 pay periods = $350)
*       Annual, semi-annual and quarterly billing is available for those who do not wish to use payroll deduction.

In recognition of your support, a plaque bearing your name, or the name of someone you choose to honor or memorialize, will adorn one of the theatre’s seats for a minimum of 15 years.

Win two tickets to Hamilton!  To kick off this special initiative, Anne Kress and Ned Davis have generously donated two tickets to the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton. Members of the MCC community who name a seat in the MCC Theatre between February 1 and March 22, 2017 (new extended deadline!) will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the April 19, 2017 performance of Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City!
