Central Alberta Theatre is installing more comfortable seating in its Studio Theatre and is asking for the public's help.

 "Our Buy-a-Seat Fundraiser is an exciting opportunity for the community to contribute to the enhancement of our beloved black box Studio Theatre while leaving a personal legacy," states a release from CAT.

The theatre group wants to improve the viewing experience for people attending a performance in the Studio (formerly Nickle) Theatre. Wider, cushier and more flexible chairs have been ordered and are expected to be installed by the fall. 

Community members and businesses can purchase a seat dedication for $100. This will allow for a message with up to 25 characters/spaces to be etched onto a dedication plaque that will hung on the studio wall.

“This fundraiser is a wonderful way for our community to show support and become a part of the Central Alberta Theatre legacy,” said Cynthia Edwards, president of CAT. “Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, honouring a loved one, or promoting a business, your contribution will be a visible and cherished part of our theatre for years to come.”

An additional line of text can be added for $25, for a more personalized message. Contributions to the "Buy a Seat" Fundraiser are 100 per cent tax-deductible, as CAT is a registered charity.

All surplus funds raised will go towards further improvements and maintenance of CAT's theatre facilities, "ensuring a top-notch experience for all attendees."
