BLAINE COMMUNITY THEATER NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!
Sponsoring Blaine Community Theater helps keep theater and performing arts alive in Blaine.
Sponsorship money received by Blaine Community Theater goes first into the production costs of individual shows: scripts, costumes, make-up, sets, props, and space for performances and rehearsals (the majority of our production costs are in renting space!). Next, sponsorship money goes to operational expenses, such as performance rights, insurance, and other incidentals. All other money goes to a savings account as we save up to afford our own performance space, reducing the largest portion of our overhead and giving us more options for performances. Blaine Community Theater is an all volunteer organization–we have no paid employees!
Sponsoring Blaine Community Theater can benefit your business in several ways. Sponsorship options will bring your advertising directly to BCT’s audience through our show programs and posters. Sponsorship also includes tickets to the shows, which make great gifts to friends, family, business partners, and employees. And since BCT is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all donations to BCT are write-offs for your next tax season!
