Honor fellow classmates, your graduating class, beloved teachers, administrators, family and friends by purchasing a theatre seat. Seats are available as a donor recognition item for $600. Consider purchasing a group of seats.  The honoree will appear on a plaque on the arm rest of a seat and the donor and their honoree will appear on the Donor Wall

*The purchase of seat plaques is for naming purposes only.  Seats are for ticket holder use, not for donor use.

All donors will be shown on our Donor Wall in the main lobby and listed in programs for every event.  Naming rights donors will have their names displayed in or on the designated space or equipment. We greatly appreciate all donations made toward the success of this fabulous project.

Historic Landmark Beautifully Restored

Fort Hill Performing Art Center is located at 20 Fort Hill Avenue, Canandaigua, NY, 14424 in the existing Fort Hill Apartments complex. The Arts Center occupies the 1928 Annex portion which formerly served as Canandaigua Academy's auditorium. It has been beautifully restored as the new Sands Family Foundation Theatre complete with lighting, sound and rigging.  The theatre is designed for performances by orchestras, chamber groups, bands, dance, dramatic and musical theatre productions, instructional programs, recitals, demonstrations, presentations, conferences and ceremonies.

The inner lobby/gallery is designed to serve as a lounge area during productions and a gallery for visual arts exhibits. The space is ideal for corporate meetings, dinners, wedding receptions and small gatherings.  Naming rights for this area are still available.
