Show Sponsorship: Prime Placement, Full Color
Program sponsorships are available in limited quantities each year.

There are four mainstage shows to choose from and each has its unique benefits and market/target audience. Please click on the below Sponsorship Presentation to see more information about these unique marketing partnerships.

More Bang for Your Buck!
Why Purchase an Annual Ad?
Each year WCSPA's Season Playbill program is circulated at all four mainstage productions performed in the 800-seat WCS Performing Arts Center.
Advertisements in the Season Playbill run for the entire season of productions (November to May) and are circulated four times during the school year. So in effect, you are getting four Ads for the price/hassle of one!
Printing and circulation occurs quarterly through the academic year when WCSPA is in session at each mainstage production. The first hits in mid-November (Fall Play), the second in early February (Winter Dance Concert or Musical), again in mid-March (Children's Musical) and last in late May (Spring Musical). In a sense, the advertiser is getting four Quarterly Ads, spread throughout the calendar/academic year. These Ads reach a wide demographic of audience members due to the variety of shows produced each year, and growing support in the community at large.
100% of all advertising donations are spent on our students and the productions for the current season. Donations and sponsorships help defray expenses such as printing costs, publicity, orchestra fees, construction materials, tools, costumes, dance shoes, make-up kits and other production costs. All monies raised will be spent in order to ensure consistency and excellence in production quality.
Deadline for advertising placement is October 31st of each year.

We Thank our Sponsors and Advertisers in advance for their support! You make it possible for us to continually advance the Arts In Education!
