There are many ways to support the theater!
Purchase a Memorial Chair
Honor a special person or organization by purchasing a memorial seat. For $250, you can adopt one of the theater’s beautiful velvet chairs and have it inscribed with the dedication of your choice. By purchasing a chair, you create a lasting memorial and contribute to the theater’s success.
Inscription text is limited to two lines. Most unclaimed chairs are in the balcony area.
If you would like to purchase a memorial chair via mail, please send a check of money order for $250 along with your desired inscription, to:
The Ontonagon Theater
PO Box 73
Ontonagon MI  49953
Please include a telephone number or email address in case we have any questions. For more information, call Jim Jessup at (906) 884-6866.
Consider a Cash Donation
Although all workers and board members are unpaid volunteers, there is great cost involved in purchasing, operating, and maintaining things like lighting, rigging, sound equipment, dressing rooms, and other ongoing projects. Because of its volunteer structure, 100 per cent of monetary contributions to the theater are applied to the aforementioned expenses and are greatly appreciated. The Ontonagon Theater is recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by the IRS, so all donations to the theater (including seat purchases) are tax deductible.

Volunteer Your Time and Talent

Volunteers are always needed. Offer to take tickets or join a committee. Housekeeping is a never-ending job, and if you know anything about theater sound or lighting, we’d like to hear from you.
Musicians and performers willing to donate their talents for benefit shows, etc., are also sometimes needed.
