Theatre-goers will have extra leg room when the seats are replaced as part of a £60,000 revamp next January.
The 180 seats in the auditorium at Sheringham Little Theatre will be replaced with 162 new ones. Some will be slightly larger and the front row will be removable to improve wheelchair access.
Toilets will also be improved – and there are also plans to improve the building exterior and the Hub coffee bar including new tables and chairs.
Theatre chairman Richard Ellis said: 'We have been fundraising for improvements for some time, and we are grateful for all the public support.'
The revamp will be paid for using the public appeal money, sponsorship and grants.
The theatre will also be seeking public sponsorship of the new seats, which can bear the donor's name. Once the fabric has been chosen a sample seat will be on display in the theatre foyer.
