Hartung Seat Campaign
Grab Your Seat Today!
In December, 2021, the Department of Theatre Arts held a dedication ceremony and renamed the auditorium in the Hartung Theatre as the Fagerbakke Stage. Star of stage and screen, U of I alumni Bill Fagerbakke's generous gift allowed us to purchase new theatre seats, re-carpet and paint the interior of the auditorium.
Now that the Fagerbakke Stage at the Hartung Theater has a fresh look and brand new seats, it's the perfect time to make one yours!
Starting at $350, your name or the name of a person you would like to honor will be engraved on a plaque affixed to the armrest on one of the brand new chairs.
This seat naming opportunity is a great way to:
- Pay tribute to your years of enjoyment at The Hartung Theater
- Give a unique gift
- Honor a loved one
- Commemorate a special occasion
- Celebrate the arrival of a child or grandchild
To reserve your seat, make a gift here.
