"TOY is a treasure in Buffalo and has been enriching children's lives for 45 years. By supporting TOY, you create memories and magical moments that children will remember for years to come."

-Angela Hamister, Board President




Theatre of Youth is offering our supporters the opportunity to “buy” seats in the Allendale Theatre, saving the seat for the future of children’s theatre in Western New York.  Supporters may choose one of the beautifully restored original seats from 1913, or any of the quality reproductions throughout the theatre.  A bronze plaque attached to "your" chair will be inscribed with your name, the name of your child or any recognition you choose.
