Become a Spotlight Partner

From JACKIE AND ME, 2013First Stage offers a unique opportunity to “spotlight” local businesses and organizations in conjunction with our plays. We seek out partners with a focus that can be thematically tied to First Stage and one or more of our plays throughout our season, with potential for these partnerships to grow beyond your partner play. We aim to promote local businesses and organizations to our wide range of family audiences, while reaching new audiences through our partners’ staff, customers, clients or members.

How does the Spotlight Partner program work?

It’s easy! We will work together to align your organization with one or more plays in our upcoming season. Here’s an idea of how we put you in the “spotlight” in the promotion of your partner play.  

First Stage will provide:

  • Four free tickets to the opening night of your partner play.
  • Opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for groups of 10 or more.
  • Your name included on First Stage’s digital and print marketing materials promoting our partnership.
  • Promotion of your business/organization’s web, email, or social media content, as relevant to your partner play.
  • Opportunity to share special offers for your organization to the First Stage audience.
  • Opportunity to display marketing materials in the lobby throughout performances of your partner play.

Our Spotlight Partners will provide First Stage:

Timely promotion of your partner play in the most effective ways to reach your customers, clients, or members, including:

  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
  • Blog posts, Email and/or print newsletters
  • Contests or giveaways
  • Special offers
  • Display marketing materials for your partner play at your location
  • In-kind or underwriting support for a fundraiser in the theater lobby during your partner play
  • Other ideas and opportunities…the sky’s the limit!
