Since 2012, Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College has served more than 100,000 visitors as audience members, performers, and workshop participants. We’ve hosted icons of American music like Mavis Staples, contemporary dance titans Pilobolus and Abraham.In.Motion, and up-and-coming superstars like Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox and Committed. Our HT@MTC Performance Incubator has launched four touring productions starring locally-based, professional performers.

Hundreds of local arts students and community members have tread our boards and filled our hall with their songs.

Your participation as an audience member and a donor are critical to this good work. Together, we will continue to think deeply, laugh heartily, and imagine a brighter future for ourselves, our families, and our community. Please give today via an opportunity below.

Take Your Seat Campaign

The Take Your Seat campaign at Harbison Theatre allows you, your business, or your favorite organization to become a permanent part of this state-of-the-art facility. A beautiful brass plaque, engraved as you wish, will be installed on the back of a seat in permanent recognition of your generous support. Naming a seat exemplifies your support of the arts in the Midlands; it can also serve as a one-of-a-kind gift for that special person or place in your life. The benefits to joining this prestigious group of donors include:

  • A brass nameplate on a seat in Harbison Theatre
  • Invitation to the President’s Circle event with MTC President Dr. Ronald L. Rhames
  • A season opening champagne reception

This unique opportunity is only available for a limited time. The cost of each seat is $1,000, payable in installments of $84 per month for a year or in a one-time payment. Please call Holly Powers at 803.732.5354 for more information.

Donate any amount today!

Donations of any denomination are accepted throughout the season to support the theatre’s ongoing endeavors.  Any amount you give today will help with our year-round operations, and ensure a bright and ongoing future for HT@MTC.
