Dedicate a Seat

Promotional image for a seat dedication campaign. Text reads "The best seat in the house is the one with their name on it. Honor someone special by dedicating a seat in The National Theatre."

Dedicating a seat at The National Theatre is one of the most personal and special ways that an individual can support The National Theatre Foundation’s operations. Give someone the gift of a lifetime by engraving their name in American Theatre History! Dedicate a seat for a friend, loved one, organization, or just for you. 

As the oldest cultural institution in Washington, DC, The National Theatre has hosted countless stars onstage and in the audience. Your seat will be among those dedicated for Bob Fosse, Helen Hayes, Pearl Bailey, Cab Calloway, a host of American Presidents, and many more!

When you dedicate a seat, we will provide you with a framed copy of your dedication plaque and a certificate that you can share with your honoree. We will also work with you to schedule an in-person unveiling of your dedicated seat. 

Funds raised from dedicated seats are used to support The National Theatre Foundation’s three free educational programs, as well as to help maintain and preserve our beautiful historic theatre. 

We look forward to working with you on selecting the perfect seat and making sure you have a memorable experience. Please email us at to find out what seats are available.
