Mountain Playhouse Sponsorship Opportunities
We can give you 25,000 reasons why becoming a Playhouse sponsor will benefit your business: Our Audience!
Each season, we welcome approximately 25,000 visitors to the theater. Let us introduce your business to each of them!
The Mountain Playhouse is:
- A Professional Equity Theater (we hire union contracted professional actors and musicians mainly from NYC– not community theater).
- A 501 (c ) 3 Nonprofit Organization (since 1998)
- An Irreplaceable Cultural Resource now in its 77th consecutive season of live summer stock theater, welcoming an average of 25,000 visitors in each
- 6-month season.
- An Important Educational Resource providing a first-experience of the performing arts to more than 4,5000 students from 11 school districts (2015).
Why We Need Sponsors
Producing live professional theater is a very costly endeavor – with expenses including:
- Actors’, Directors’, Producer’s & creative staff’s salaries and full benefits
- Production costs – theater rental, props, sets, costumes, lighting, sound, utilities, maintenance
- Box Office operations and technology expense
- Administrative & Management Staff Salaries
- Marketing & Advertising
- Rights and royalties
Although we have increased our ticket sales by 18.6% in the past two seasons, our ticket revenue still only covers approximately 63% of our annual expenses, making it imperative to garner support from foundations, individual donors and community-minded BUSINESS SPONSORS such as YOU!
