Support programming for the Catherine Cummings Theatre

Take-A-Seat Campaign
Cazenovia College’s Catherine Cummings Theatre has stood as a multi-purpose facility in the heart of Cazenovia for over 100 years. Originating as a town hall before transitioning to an opera house, the theatre has welcomed generations of audiences with its many shows and presentations. After the theatre was purchased in 1968 by Cazenovia College, the historic building was renovated and refurbished to serve the growing arts and cultural economy of the region, which is nearly $6 million annually. 
The Catherine Cummings Theatre showcases events throughout the year, ranging from musical productions, plays, distinguished lectures, cultural events, children’s theatre camps, movies, and the annual Jazz-N-Caz event. The college is asking Cazenovia community members to consider contributing to excellence in local arts and cultural programming through the Take-A-Seat campaign.
Donors to the Take-A-Seat initiative have the opportunity for their name or their business’ name to appear on a specially crafted metal plate, which will be affixed to the arm of a theatre seat. While this tax-deductible contribution will not reserve a seat for theatre experiences, it will highlight the donor’s generosity in supporting arts and cultural programming.
“Our goal for the Take-A-Seat campaign is $75,000, which will allow us to present an even stronger sampling of shows and presentations that the Cazenovia community so enjoys,” says Colleen Prossner, Theatre Operations Manager.
