Why Sponsor?

Sponsors help cover the costs of production, such as royalties, scripts, costumes, sets, props, theatre rental, and more! The offset of these basic expenses creates more opportunities for youth and adults in the community to experience the performing arts, higher quality productions, and events tailored to community interests and needs.

Program Graphic Information

The program graphic space that comes with most sponsor levels will be featured in the next five Main Stage and Youth Theater programs. This amounts to over 4,000 programs in hands over a one year period!

Sponsors have the option to change their ad graphic for each production program to correspond with the time of year the graphic will be seen, the production’s target demographic, or any events or promotions they may want to notify audiences of. Of course, we always appreciate a shout out to the arts, too!

Don’t have a graphic ready? We will help you create one that fits your needs!

See below for information on our next five Main Stage and Youth Theater productions. The New Sponsor Deadline indicates the date by which we need to receive payment and graphic in order to start running your graphic in that production’s program.
