CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP

Overshadowed Theatrical Productions delivers quality, family-friendly drama that entertains, inspires, and promotes a Biblical message. Reaching out to the suburban community, we seek to point the way to Christ. Attendance at Overshadowed Theatrical Productions exceeded 10,000 people during our 2013-14 season, and more than 200 patrons support us with their financial gifts. On Facebook, more than 1,300 people view and “like” the information we post. Additionally, we reach audience members in the Chicago land area and in a number of states nationwide.

Sponsors play a vital role in the production process. Ticket revenue only covers a portion of our expenses, so sponsor contributions demonstrate a commitment to the arts in our local community and enable us to fulfill our mission of delivering quality, family-friendly drama. These sponsorships also contribute to our plan to build our own building on land we have already purchased on Irving Park Road in Itasca, Illinois.

As a Corporate Sponsor, your organization will have unlimited access to advertise to this audience!

Overshadowed Theatrical Productions is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your sponsorship qualifies as a tax exemption donation. Your one-year sponsorship guarantees your advertisement is featured in four main stage production programs, two theatre camp production programs, and one theater for young audiences production program. Review the information in this packet and contact us regarding the level at which you would like to sponsor Overshadowed. We offer a number of different programs at different levels.

I invite you to sponsor one of our productions at one of the levels detailed in the table below. Your sponsorship is an excellent way to play a major role in bringing live theatre to Itasca and the surrounding area. Theatre sponsorship is rewarding not only for the positive marketing benefits but also as a statement that your company cares about your community.
