Production sponsors allow The Depot Theatre to maintain the extraordinary quality of its programming. The cost of royalties, sets, and costumes quickly adds up, and our sponsors help us defray the considerable upfront expense of creating live theatre.
In addition to promoting the arts in our community, sponsorship is a great way to spotlight your business. Sponsors appear in all of our publicity – on our website, in posters, programs, and print ads, as well as receiving a personal "thank you" before each performance. If you'd like to sponsor a show, contact us and we'll be glad to discuss our upcoming productions. Thanks for supporting live theatre!
Want to be a part of something special at the Depot? We've got opportunities for GALA SPONSORS, BINGO SPONSORS, INTERMISSION SPONSOR... we'd love to put together a sponsorship package that fits your needs.
