Sponsorship & Underwriting

One of the most direct ways to enable us to entertain you is to help underwrite a specific performance or event that you are particularly excited to see.

You are then helping to make it happen! Rarely do the box office proceeds for an event cover the full costs, which include artist fees, and promotion and production costs.

We have a plethora of performance sponsorship opportunities for our season: On Stage Sponsor, Black Box Sponsor, and On Screen Sponsor. Please read below for more information on programs in need of sponsorship here at Orcas Center. We welcome your interest and appreciate your support!

On Stage Sponsor

These performances take place on our Center Stage, with a 213 audience capacity. We are seeking sponsor support at the following levels: $250, $500, $1,000, and $2500+ Sole Sponsor. Businesses, individuals, and families interested in sponsoring one of Orcas Center’s On Stage events will be featured as On Stage Sponsor in the Playbill program insert for whichever program(s) you support.
