Vancouver Island University’s Malaspina Theatre in Nanaimo has launched a fundraising campaign.
Leon Potter, VIU Theatre Chair, says the seats in the theatre are 40 years old and in pretty rough shape.
He says the theatre is often the first impression people get of the university so it’s important to get them upgraded…..
In an effort to raise the $220,000 that’s needed to replace those seats the theatre is selling sponsorships for new seats that range from $100 to $500.
Those who buy a seat will get a permanent plaque affixed to it.
