Naming Opportunities

Inscribe a Brick

The Brick Campaign provides a unique opportunity to support the Wayne Theatre and leave your legacy through the purchase of engraved bricks installed in the theatre's front entrance.

The tax-deductible bricks are $250.00 each. They are 4″ x 8" and will display your specially chosen message.   You may add your name or the name of a friend, colleague, loved one, or organization. Bricks are a great opportunity to celebrate special accomplishments or honor a loved one.

For more information about our brick campaign, please call 540-943-9999

Inscribe a Seat

This is an excellent opportunity to leave an indelible mark on the historic Wayne Theatre by naming a seat for you, your spouse, your children or grandchildren, a friend, a colleague, the memory of a loved one, or your company.

With your tax-deductible gift to the Wayne Theatre's seat campaign, we will have a name plaque engraved and installed on one of the 350 seats in the Wayne Theatre. For years to come,  audience members will be reminded of your support to make the Wayne Theatre an outstanding setting for noteworthy performances and events.
