PRODUCTION SPONSORSHIPS, EVENT SPONSORSHIPS, PLAY BILL ADVERTISING AND MORE...
For decades, the Alexandria Area Arts Association has been producing quality community theatre that showcases regional talent and contributes to the economic and cultural climate that makes Alexandria a great place to live, work and play. But, we can not do it alone.
Many people are suprised to learn that ticket sales account for LESS THAN HALF of our income. In fact, without community partners, individual contributions and sponsorships, we would not be able to provide programming, productions or education to the community - and so we are asking you to join us by sponsoring a production or an event at the AAAA during our 2015-2016 season of plays!.
Sponsorships are a tax exempt means for maintaining and growing the AAAA – they help us defray the cost of producing and help us keep our ticket prices affordable. But sponsorships are also a great way to market your business.
- Sponsorships are direct access to a target market. The Alexandria Area Arts Association serves a vast population - around 10,000 patrons come through our doors each year for productions and special events... and Art in the Park draws 30,000 people each year to Alexandria. Sponsors have benefits such as logo placement, advertising, press releases and marquee placement to enhance their name and brand to their customers. Plus, arts attendees, on average, are more likely to support businesses that support the arts in their local communities.
- Sponsorships positively enhance business image. The AAAA is a trusted part of the community, and is open and accessible to all. Businesses sponsor the arts to build positive connections, attitudes and values in the mind of their customers by linking your business with innovative and creative thinkers.
- Sponsorships are a great way to invest in your community. Community Theatre not only draws several thousand patrons each year, but our programming directly employs around 50 area artists each year, from directors to designers. Additionally, around 100 adults participate in our programming each year (both onstage and off), and another 50 regional youth participate in our educational programming. Investment in the community theatre provides employment, cultural access and opportunities for many area citizens to get involved!
We have a variety of great productions and events this year - ranging from our mainstage productions, to our yearly events (New Year's Improv Show, Art in the Park) and our sizzling summer intensive programs for students, the Student Theatre Projects.
