Help improve Falcon's seating (and your poor posterior) by funding new risers and seats for our theater.

Short Summary

Falcon Theater performs some great theater.  From "Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical" to "Evil Dead: The Musical" to "Poseidon: The Upside-Down Musical" to "Hamlet" (we pride ourselves on diversity): you've laughed with us.  You've cried with us.  You've also shifted awkwardly in your seat, not because the serial killer in "Frozen" made you uncomfortable, but because...

Your butt hurts.  Your back aches.  You hope for intermission to stretch.

So help us make you more comfortable.  

What We Need & What You Get

We need to redo our risers, some HVAC (heating and cooling: important) as well as some new, comfortable chairs.  We've already raised $1200 in donations in the theater, as well as $6500 from both Summerfair and a William Purdy Foundation grant.  We've written other grants, too, and are waiting to hear if we've gotten them.

That said, we need to make sure we can do this project this summer so that when this fall's TBD opener opens, everyone can settle into comfortable chairs and enjoy the show.

What we need:

  • New Risers, with integrated lighting for safety and accessibility
  • New chairs, that are comfortable and more appropriate for a theater
  • Rerouting of our HVAC, to create more headroom in the audience

What you get:

  • A comfortable chair to sit in when you see our shows
  • A tax deduction (we are a 501 (c)3 organization, but of course consult your tax advisor)
  • Possibly a thank-you gift from Falcon
  • Lots of good karma

Other Ways You Can Help

We know.  We're artists.  We get it it.  You can't always help financially.  How can you help us?

  • Share this with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, smoke signals.
  • Volunteer!  That's free, and you get to see a show too.

  • $150USD

    You've always wanted to go into somewhere and say, "Please lead me to my chair." Okay, well, maybe it's just us. Anyway. For $150 you're an official chair sponsor, and any time you come to Falcon, you can request your seat (considering we're general seating, that's a big deal). Want to sit in the "splatter section"? It's yours. Want to sit in the back? You're good. Note: You must call ahead to reserve your seat.
