Brick Campaign

You can be one of those who link the past to the future with a $125 donation. Not since the Wayne was opened in 1926 has there been a chance for you to put your thumbprints on the venerable structure and leave a mark for all those who pass by.

Questions?  Please call 540-943-9999.

Seat Campaign

We invite you to join us in the opportunity and privilege of leaving an indelible mark on our historic treasure from 1926, the Wayne Theatre.

While partnering with us to bring a tremendous cultural resource to Waynesboro, you will also gain access to the actual naming of a seat, handsomely etched into the armrest itself. Through the link below, you can find more information about the naming opportunity for as many seats as you wish, through a tax-deductible donation.

Become part of the history of tomorrow by putting your name on a seat, remembering a loved one, or proudly displaying your company name. Gifting others with the naming of a seat is a timeless token of affection that will be cherished for years to come. Gift certificates are available upon request.

Please join us in this exciting venture of creating a New Waynesboro through a new Wayne. Securing the naming opportunity of a seat is very affordable, while leaving a lasting inspiration to all who will tangibly see your invaluable part in bringing this state-of-the-art facility to Waynesboro.

Seats are available for a one-time donation of $1,000 or $1,250 when paid over three years. The first-year installment must accompany the seat pledge card.

Questions?  Please call 540-943-9999.

Leaving a Bequest

A bequest is a way to continue support of an organization that shares your values and will extend those values into the future. WTA has a prepared codicil that can be used to direct a portion of your estate or retirement funds to the Wayne Theatre.

You can also have your lawyer write a bequest to WTA into your will. The funds can be directed to the operational budget or restricted to any of the following WTA accounts: Programming Fund, Building Fund, Subsidize Fund or Endowment.
