Naming Opportunities

Naming opportunities are available as individual or corporate gifts. It is a wonderful way to preserve a family’s legacy or to publicly show your commitment for culture in the Waynesboro community. GET STARTED

Brick Campaign

You can be one of those who link the past to the future with a $250 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. GET STARTED

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 $1500.
