Show that you care and name a seat for someone you love.

You Can Sit With Us

Whether you like to sit front row center, middle aisle, or somewhere in the back where no one will hear you chew, there's always a place — and a seat — for you at Rattlestick. And as we renovate our theater to become a better space for our community, we want our community to feel at home. So, we invite you to carve your name – so to speak — on a seat in our new space and invest in Rattlestick’s artists and future.

I'm Feeling 22

We’ve called 224 Waverly our home for 22 years. Now, we’re renovating our theater to enhance accessibility and give YOU a more comfortable space to gather with other audience members and artists. In addition to adding an ADA-accessible elevator and bathrooms, Rattlestick will lower our stage to the floor, allowing for greater artistic innovation and accessibility. Our new and improved space will feature a flexible seating arrangement that can accommodate a proscenium, thrust, or theater-in-the-round configuration, so the chair that you name will become part of the fabric of each show.

It's a Match!

Until August 15th, all donations under $5,000 to the Artistic Home Campaign will be matched two to one by the Victor C. & Clara C. Battin Foundation. So, make a gift today and triple your impact!

What's My Name?

For a fully tax-deductible donation of $1,500, you can name a seat in our space — for yourself, or a beloved family member, or maybe even a childhood pet — and join Rattlestick's future as we support brave works and artists who are challenging the theatrical landscape. Whether you're seated next to a new friend, an old friend, an invisible friend, or someone you're meeting for the first time, we can’t wait to invite you into our new space, and hope you’ll stay awhile.

To name a seat, donate $1,500 or more to the Artistic Home Campaign or send a check to 224 Waverly Pl, New York, NY 10014.
