STAGE A PARTY.
Think Theatre for Your Next Benefit or Group Event
The 410-seat Mainstage Auditorium
Our intimate 117-seat Cattell Auditorium
Many non-profit organizations choose to use our benefit performances as a fundraising opportunity. Here's how it works: Your organization can pay a flat fee for use of the theatre for an evening, usually a Wednesday evening which is ordinarily a "dark" night for TWS between the two performance weekends (availability listed below). You can sell tickets, serve food, host auctions, whatever you like. Your attendees then get to watch a TWS performance that is put on EXCLUSIVELY for them!
Rates are $1200 for a Mainstage/Holiday benefit (410 seats.) Your organization can charge an amount equal to or more than these ticket prices:
$20 for Mainstage or Forum productions
$13 for Holiday production
$12 for Children's Theatre productions
The Benefits of Having Your Benefit at TWS:
Let's take a minute and do the math...
Let's say you want to have a fundraiser that nets $6000. You book our mainstage, and you sell tickets at $25.00. (That's an arbitrary figure, although you may charge more.) If you sell 300 tickets (out of 410 maximum) that's $7500 in ticket sales, minus $1200 rental fee. That nets $6300. Another modest $1200 from a silent auction or refreshments in the lobby at intermission, and you've exceeded your goal by $1500, while our actors and technicians have done most of the work. It's simple, it's effective, and it's not labor intensive.
