Take a Seat

× Showplace welcomes thousands of visitors each year. By attracting celebrated performers and diverse entertainment, we will continue to contribute to Peterborough's history of being a vibrant place to live, work and play.

Part of welcoming so many guests is the wear and tear it takes on the seats. the current seats were purchased in 1996 and were previously used at that time. With well over a million people coming through the building since opening, the seats are tired and need to be replaced. Part of this replacement will include the installation of cup holders so you can enjoy a beverage without worrying about spilling (and will also reduce the workload for our dedicated volunteers!)

You can help make this dream a reality by putting your name on a plaque as you "Take a Seat" to help Showplace replace the seats in the theatre. Seats are $1000 each and can be purchased either in one lump payment or as a pledge up to two years!
