Kentucky Repertory Theatre brings new comfort with permanent seats

HORSE CAVE — The installation of permanent seats began this week at Kentucky Repertory Theatre and is expected to be completed by the opening of the theater's production of “Sherlock Holmes” on Friday.

The new seats will replace folding director's chairs the theater has used since the removal of the theater's original seats in April 2011.

Ken Hailey, producing artistic consultant for the theater, said he has been working with the theater's board of directors to get permanent seating.

“When we decided we were going to be able to keep the place open, the seats were like the highest priority,” he said. “There are literally people who will not come back into the theater until they get the seats in, so that became a big priority for us.”

Only 150 to 175 new seats are being installed at this time, with plans to install additional seats later.

The seats are not brand new, but rather are ones that were purchased at a discounted price of $80 each from a company dealing in used and renovated theater seating.

The replacement seats are also slightly wider than those the theater had previously used.
