Capitol Theatre Chair Campaign


The time is now! Take your seat in history by donating to the Capitol Theatre Chair Campaign. Your donation directly supports the creation and production of top-tier performances by Capitol Theatre resident artists:

Ballet West
Utah Opera
Salt Lake County’s Innovation Development Fund

Naming your chair is easy:

Step 1: Visit the “Take Your Seat In History” page on and select your chair.
Step 2: Complete your donation.
Step 3: Enter your engraving request.  Directions will be sent with your donation confirmation.
Step 4: Enjoy your place in history!

You will be the first to see your named chair: all campaign donors are invited to attend the grand re-opening of the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre in the fall of 2019.

Donations will directly support programming initiatives at Ballet West and the Utah Opera, and spearhead Salt Lake County’s Innovation Development Fund to support new works from local artists and organizations.

Chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Your name will appear on the chair for a term of ten years, at which time you will have priority to renew its naming. Donations are due in full at the time of purchase.

Chair Campaign donations may be fully tax deductible; please consult an advisor regarding your individual circumstances. Your donation does not guarantee your selected chair is available for any Ballet West, Utah Opera, or other performances.
