is to cultivate in our schools and communities an appreciation and understanding of how the performing arts—music, drama, and dance—deepen and illuminate what it means to be human. For people of all ages, OPAC promotes a community of fluent learners, critical thinkers, and creative contributors to our society. The Orion Performing Arts Center is a cultural beacon in the region, allowing the community at large to experience first-rate live performances by students, amateurs, and professionals.
PURCHASE A SEAT PLAQUE!
You can become an important and enduring part of OPAC when you “Have a Seat” — your name engraved on a permanent commemorative brass plaque, attached to a seat in the theater. Your donation helps the capital improvements fund--for curtains, lighting, and other theater needs. People who come to performances will notice your name and appreciate
your support for the arts.
Or, buy a plaque as a gift for someone else—a new graduate, your parents or child, a favorite teacher, a friend, or someone you admire in the community. Click here for a brochure to learn more about the
seat plaque campaign.
