Cinnabar Theater is a professional non-profit 501(c)3 regional theater with an Equity contract serving an annual audience of over 15,000, and more than 1,200 students attending performances and class programs each year. Roughly half of our total annual budget is earned through ticket sales and Special Events like the Chili Cook-off. Each year, Cinnabar Theater must raise the balance from individuals, sponsorships and grants in order to maintain our programs. Our donor community performs an integral role in fulfilling Cinnabar Theater’s mission and we are grateful for the support.

As a Sponsor of Cinnabar Theater, your organization will have the opportunity to contribute to Cinnabar’s artistic and educational outreach programs while enhancing your company’s involvement in the community and building your visibility among targeted audiences. Our customized partnership program can add value to your business through a variety of acknowledgment and marketing opportunities. We’d be happy to discuss your bonus options for entertaining clients and employees.
