2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

Seacoast Repertory Theater is a professional non-profit theater with a mission to enrich the culture of the Seacoast through the shared experience of live theater. With the help of our community, we’ve been pursuing that mission for nearly 32 years now. While ticket sales and tuition helps keep that mission going, we can not do what we do without our community sponsors.

We understand that your charitable dollars are valuable. We hope you’ll find that Seacoast Rep offers great value, impact, and visibility for your dollar. We also have a variety of ways to sponsor at all levels.

Sponsor the Season 
You get your name all over everything – all year long – at the Seacoast’s only year-round professionally producing theatre. We’re planning nine mainstage productions, over twenty Red Light productions, three Teen Mainstage productions, two HomeGrown, locally written, shows and one-off events, and more. This work will be seen by 40,000 ticket holders. You’ll be in every program, thanked at every speech, put on every poster, and more. Plus you’ll get some free tickets to pass out as gifts to clients or employees (or another non-profit). 

Red Light Season 
Would you like to get your business on the cutting edge of entertainment on the Seacoast? Red light is for you. We have at least twenty shows going on, and they’re all going to #KeepPortsmouthWeird. You get everything listed under the sponsorship, plus whatever our co-Artistic Directors, Ben & Brandon, can come up with as a bonus. 

Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts Season 
We have 200+ students in our PAPA program every year, making us the largest youth theatre program on the Seacoast. Their shows are well attended by friends, family, and parents. If your business benefits from getting in front of families, this is your sponsorship. Our PAPA kids range in age from 4 – 18. Between day camps, overnight opportunities, our Teen Mainstage, workshop productions, and more, we have something happening all year round. A sponsorship of our PAPA Season allows us to provide more than $20,000 each year to students in need of financial assistance. 

Senior Repertory Theatre
Our offering for theatre-folk of a certain age. Senior Rep members meet weekly all year round. We offer four sessions each year and each session offers something different. Whether it be writing original pieces, performing skits, singing in cabarets, or taking theater classes, our seniors continue to learn new skills while giving back to our community. A sponsorship of Senior Rep allows us to keep fees low and offer tickets to Senior Rep productions free to other seniors. 

Jamie Bradley’s HomeGrown Series 
If you’re a fan of local, this is your sponsorship. HomeGrown gives a voice to local playwrights and is entirely cast and staffed with local actors and production teams. We give these shows the full professional treatment, and our sponsors get the same. This year we’ve added sketch and playreading.
