The Ojai Art Center is preparing for its 80th anniversary, and officials there are hoping the community will stand up to help patrons sit down.
Starting July 15, they will begin accepting donations for new seats for the Center’s theater. The perks of donating include a chair nameplate, season tickets, wall plaque and commemorative poster; among other items. The item or items received depends on the amount donated.
The theater is the longest continuously operating community theater in California and has hosted events of all types, including the Ojai Shakespeare Festival, Ojai Film Festival and Ojai Film Society awards.
