Retired chairs are available for purchase for $20/chair (cash and carry) and may be picked up now through September 1, during box office hours, which are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Over the last decade and a half, the floor chairs have received more than 600,000 hours of use at approximately 880 staged events, providing thousands of patrons the opportunity to experience a show or event. The opportunity to sponsor a new seat by purchasing a nameplate is now being made available for $500/freestanding chair or $750/fixed balcony seating. Reserve your nameplate today by calling the box office at: (231) 941-8082.

The new chairs were purchased through the generous support of the Art and Mary Schmuckal Family Foundation and an anonymous donor.
