Special Sponsorship Opportunities
Ticket Sponsorship - $5,000 or $20,000 for Exclusivity
Ticket Sponsorship is an opportunity for your business to receive maximum exposure by having your logo or advertisement professionally printed on the back of every Seacoast Repertory Theatre ticket sold during the 2013 season. These tickets will be placed directly into the hands of the estimated 42,000+ patrons who will attend a Rep show during our 25th Anniversary Season.
Sponsor a Resident Actor for a Season - $1,500
The Rep is proud to employ a talented troupe of resident actors. Many of these actors have entertained Rep audiences for multiple seasons and have become favorites of Rep patrons. This sponsorship recognizes an outstanding actor, chosen by the sponsor, whose standard of excellence reflects the mission of The Rep. This distinction and the donor's name/business logo will be noted on our website and in our playbill. A signed and framed photograph of the sponsor and their sponsored artist(s) will be presented to the donor at the performance of their choice.
Sponsor “Henrietta” for a Season - $1,500 or $4,000 for Exclusivity
Henrietta is The Rep’s multi-purpose vehicle. Dubbed Henrietta for her “hippo-like” proportions, she transports actors to and from the theater for rehearsals and shows and is utilized for day-outings. She is the main means of transport for theater errands, trips to the lumber yard and prop-shopping – often traveling out of state for specialized set pieces and large props. This vehicle is an essential asset for The Rep and requires regular maintenance. Henrietta can be a moving billboard for your business, painted to include your logo with a specialized message of support for The Rep.
Sponsor the Annual Gala
Each year, The Rep hosts a large fundraising event. The date and style of the event may vary from year to year, but the intent is the same. Sponsorship provides visibility on all press materials, invitations, programs, and signage.
Sponsorships via Trade
The Rep will gladly work out trade agreements in exchange for: rehearsal space, storage or shop space (for set-building), catering, or printing services.
