Our Buy a Brick donation program allows you to make a donation to The Smith when you inscribe a brick with a name or message of your choosing. Your brick will be installed in the sidewalk directly in front of The Smith Opera House by one of our volunteers. You’ll “pave the way” with a lasting memento of your love of the arts in the Geneva community. The donation for each brick is $100. You also have the option of purchasing a Donor Certificate for $10 and/or a Souvenir Brick for $25*.

The cost of running and maintaining the historic Smith Opera House greatly exceeds income generated from ticket sales, sponsorships and rentals. Generous contributions allow this not-for-profit organization to stabilize its finances. Your support keeps The Smith fully engaged in its mission of bringing live performances and films to delight visitors and the residents of the Finger Lakes.

*Certificates will be mailed to the address of your choosing. Please contact us at or 315-781-5483 to let us know where you would like it sent. Souvenir Bricks must be picked up at The Smith Box Office, which is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.We will contact you when the Souvenir Brick arrives.
