Interested in making a donation or being a corporate sponsor?
Shows are expensive, and though we keep checking, money still isn't growing on the trees outside the auditorium. The drama club would appreciate any donation that members of the community can provide. Ads are available for purchase in the spring musical program at the following rate: $25 for 1/4 page, $50 for 1/2 and $100 for a full page. If you are interested in making a more sizable donation, corporate sponsors and "private benefactors" will be featured in both programs for the year, thanked personally at the start of every show and offered complimentary tickets to all performances. Please contact Mr. Cossitor at the above email address or read the corporate sponsor letter for more information. Correspondence can be sent to:
