APT has several sponsorships that directly support specific programs within the organization and offer unique recognition opportunities. For more information on any of the sponsorships, please contact Aleta Barmore at 608-588-9210 or Beth Ferstl at 608-588-9209.
This sponsorship supports the 115 performances staged at APT and gives the greatest visibility. Your logo will appear in a pre-season newspaper ad, on the APT website, on a display in the theater lobby, and in the season brochure (circ. 120,000). Season sponsors also receive 10 pre-show “thank you” announcements throughout the summer, a half page ad in the playbill, 20 complimentary tickets, a picnic tent and speaker for your group and special pricing for employees/clients for selected dates.
Education Program Sponsorship
As a Major Education Sponsor, you will serve a dual need: supporting APT and supporting the region’s schools. Through our Student Matinee Series, each year more than 670 teachers and 16,000 students see an APT performance, and many also receive workshops in their own classroom. Recognition includes a playbill ad, prominent logo recognition on the "Exploring the Classics" page of the playbill and on the educator newsletter, APTeacher. Sponsors also receive pre-show “thank you” announcements at Student Matinees, 10 complimentary tickets and special pricing for employees/clients for selected dates.
This sponsorship underwrites the scores of costumes that appear on the APT stage each year. Everything the actors wear - from corsets to suits of armor, from wigs to bucket-top boots - is conceived by our costume designers and either pulled from stock, rented from other theaters, or built from scratch by our costume staff of 40 talented people. As an underwriter of this great creative process, sponsors receive recognition in the playbill and on a costume display in the lobby up the Hill; a tour of the costume shop; and eight complimentary tickets.
Core Company Sponsorship
Sponsors provide support to ensure that APT’s Core Company remains strong and that the work on stage is second to none. Recognition will appear on the "About the Core Company" page of the playbill and on a core company display in the lobby up the hill. Sponsors are invited to attend an exclusive event with the core company; provided special pricing for their employees on select dates; and receive eight complimentary tickets.
Actor Apprenticeship Program
This program underwrites the academy for young actors to learn APT’s aesthetic and begin their grooming for inclusion in our Core Company. Sponsors receive recognition in our playbill, a picnic dinner with the Apprentices; an invitation to the Apprentice showcase and two complimentary tickets.
Spotlight Sponsors underwrite a single performance, nurturing APT's artistic excellence and contributing to the theater’s success. In thanks, Spotlight Sponsors will receive a thank-you sign in the lobby on the night of their sponsored performance, four complimentary tickets to a show of their choice, an invitation to an APT donor event and a listing on the APT website.
