Dedicate a Seat


Dedicate a seat in our theatre with a beautiful brass commemorative seat plate in your name, or to honor a relative, friend, or organization of your choice.

As the longest standing Washington performing arts institution, the history living in our Broadway-style theatre is rich and compelling. From our nation’s Presidents to our countries’ most treasured stars, we have been a cultural home for this city and for America for over 180 years.


We invite you to add your name to this heritage and contribute to the future of The National. 

For over 180 years, The National Theatre has been emblematic of the Capitol’s growth and development, and considered one of America’s premier theatrical treasures. Since it’s earliest days, Presidents from Andrew Jackson to Abraham Lincoln to John F. Kennedy traveled the short distance from the White House to The National. Virtually every major theatrical star in the nation’s history has graced The National’s stage. Among them: Robert Redford, Sarah Bernhardt, Katherine Hepburn, Angela Lansbury, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Ian McKellan, Pearl Bailey, Sting, and Idina Menzel. This theater has meant so much to so many. If The National has a place in your story, your name deserves a place in our theatre.



Like theatre tickets, the seat contributions vary by location – from $500 in the Balcony to $1,500 in the center Orchestra. Since The National Theatre is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cultural organization, your contribution is deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent of the law.
