Seat Naming Campaign


This is a call to all the arts supporters to put your name down in history! The Folly Theater has announced one of our biggest initiatives in our recent history, the Seat Naming Campaign! As a part of our endowment efforts, which reached its first phase goal of one million dollars in July of 2017. This was accomplished in part by individuals and companies putting their name down in history and metal that they will stand to support the Folly Theater and the growth of the arts in Kansas City. We have a bit to go to reach our second phase goal of five million dollars, but we can get there with your support!

A Folly Theater seat, inscribed with your name, a loved one’s name, your business, or in memoriam, creates a lasting legacy. For future visitors, your named seat serves as a reminder of your commitment to Kansas City’s performing arts.Your tax-deductible contribution to name a seat will be celebrated by family, friends, peers and the community. Most importantly, your contribution ensures the sustainability of the Folly to serve many generations yet to come.
