A seat in the Weiss Theater is waiting for you. Give that seat a name and give yourself a legacy.

An Invitation

The Department of Theater at Lafayette College invites you to HAVE A SEAT and join in a legacy that will benefit students, faculty, alumni, and audiences well into the future.

With a tax-deductible donation of $500, you can name a seat in the newly opened Weiss Theater in Buck Hall on the Williams Arts Campus.


An Inscribed Plate

An inscribed plate will be attached to the seat, etching yourname in Lafayette’s theater history and creating a lasting memory in your name, in the name of a loved one or a friend, or as a representative of an organization, corporation, fraternity, sorority, theater production, or community group.

An Endowment FundĀ  for the Theater Department

Your generous HAVE-A-SEAT contribution will help build an endowment fund for the exclusive use of the Theater Department to:

  • maintain the flexible interior of the Weiss Theater
  • upgrade and repair equipment for theater productions and classes that guarantee our students train and learn with state-of-the-art technology
  • support our goal of sustainable and eco-friendly practice that will distinguish Lafayette’s Theater Department as the first entirely green educational theater on the planet.


An Interest in Doing More

If you are interested in providing further support or possibly honoring or memorializing a classmate, loved one or favorite professor, several naming opportunities are available within the Weiss Theater and Buck Hall. All HAVE-A-SEAT campaign donations are tax-deductible.
