Fall In Love...All Over Again

The iconic Folly Theater embodies Kansas City’s love for the performing arts. This fall, we completed the most transformational revitalization undertaken by the Folly in over 40 years, including wider, more comfortable seats, upgraded lobbies, and enhanced dressing rooms.  Now we need your help to keep the Folly’s spirit alive!

We are committed to presenting extraordinary performances, featuring diverse international and local artists, and welcoming all people to experience the power of the arts in this jewel box theater.  Will you show YOUR LOVE with a financial contribution – helping propel the Folly into a new chapter of profound arts experiences?

We need your help to launch the Folly into a future full of diverse possibilities.

Show your love and Donate Now.

Seat Naming Campaign

Arts supporters: Put your name down in history! Announcing the Folly’s Seat Naming Campaign! As a part of our endowment efforts, which has surpassed $2.5 million thus far, this initiative allows individuals and companies to write their name down in history (and metal) and show their support of 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 that can be done 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. 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.

Ready to put your name down in Kansas City history as a pillar of society? Give us a call! Reach out to Brian Williams, Director of Development, by phone at 816-768-6886 ext. 102 or email him. He will gladly walk you through the process, your options, and even tour the seats with you so you know where your seat will sit in history.

You can also download the full booklet of information here. If you already know the section you want (broken down in the map below), fill out this form and email it to Brian Williams,, or mail it to 1020 Central Street STE 200, Kansas City, MO 64105. Brian will contact you soon to start the process.

Below is the map of seats and commitment level for each section.


The Folly Theater’s legacy is only possible through the generous donations of our donors and patrons. Through community and individual giving, the Folly continues to thrive as Kansas City’s oldest theater. The Folly will continue to showcase artists and productions that enrich the lives of Kansas Citians and will be more than gracious to receive monies in support of this effort.
