Dear Friends of Weathervane Playhouse,

Weathervane Playhouse has been producing premier, professional live theatre for Licking County and the Columbus area for 50 years. As a non-profit, charitable arts organization, we are committed to providing quality theatre and arts education for people of all ages.

Preparations are also underway for our 50th Anniversary Season. The 2018 Summer Season will be filled with thrills, laughter, and musical entertainment and includes A Chorus Line, I Hate Hamlet, 42nd Street, Merrily We Roll Along, and Pippin, as well as the 2018 October show, The Full Monty, and the 2018 December show, Gypsy. Weathervane Playhouse would be thrilled to partner with you as either a sponsor or program advertiser during one or more of our year round productions and seasons.

Throughout the year, Weathervane Playhouse productions have the potential to reach an audience of over 10,000 people. This presents your company with two unique opportunities: first, you can show the community your support for the arts, and second, you will be marketing your company to our audience and informing them about your products and services. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your customer base! Please find information below on how your company can help support the arts in our community through becoming a Weathervane sponsor or program advertiser.

We make it easy for our sponsors and advertisers to be part of all we do at the Playhouse. Our appreciation for and commitment to those who partner with us have been proven time and time again, and we intend to see that partnership continue for many years to come.

We look forward to seeing you shine as one of the starring members of the Weathervane Playhouse family. Don’t miss being part of Weathervane’s continuing success story!

How your sponsorship helps your business:

Weathervane Playhouse audience members are your customers, or potential customers. The majority of our Season Ticket Subscribers are long-standing, loyal patrons who reside in Newark, Heath, Granville, and Columbus area. Through your Sponsorship, you will receive many advertising and marketing opportunities to expose your business to our audience, as well as our community.

How your sponsorship helps the Community:

Many people agree the arts have a positive sociological impact on communities. There is also an economic impact. Weathervane Playhouse, with the aid of our Patrons and Sponsors, contribute to our local economy in various ways: Increased tourism (approximately 75% of our 2016 Season Ticket holders reside in the Newark, Heath and Granville area, while the remainder travel from Columbus, Pataskala, Reynoldsburg, New Albany, Westerville, Buckeye Lake, Zanesville, Lancaster and beyond); shopping (many of our purchases for show items are spent at local businesses and stores); employment (approximately 40 people were locally employed or contracted to live in Licking County throughout the 2016 Summer Season).   Weathervane Playhouse has a long history of drawing talented actors, crew, and staff from around the country to live, work, and become an active member of the Licking County community.

How your sponsorship helps Weathervane Playhouse:

 Your financial sponsorship directly contributes to the production of each of our main stage shows. There are many behind-the scenes, as well as on-stage elements, that go into producing a high-quality, professional play or musical: costumes, props, scenery, lights and sound; plus, the designers, technicians, and actors who bring the stage to life are just part of the work and dedication it takes to create live theatre.
