The advertisements in our programs fund a large percentage of the production costs. Therefore, we require all Theatre Guild members/families to help sell these ads as a fundraiser. Each ad sold appears in the programs for the current show and each show for the remainder of the year. So if an ad is placed in the program for our first production in fall, that same ad will appear in programs for the four other shows in the production season. In a typical year, the programs are seen by up to 15,000 people!
Each Theatre Guild member/family is required to make a deposit for one ad. If you sell an ad, your deposit will be refunded to you in full! If you choose to not sell an ad, the deposit will be donated to the Pioneer Theatre Booster Club. NOTE: if you requested a scholarship or are hosting an Exchange Student, you do not need to make an ad deposit.
The ad deposit covers the current and all subsequent shows for the season. If you pay the deposit for the fall production, you are not required to pay a deposit for additional shows throughout the season. If your student participates in any later shows, you do not need to make an additional deposit or sell an ad. If you pay via check it will not be cashed until the ad deadline, so you will have time to sell an ad if you choose to. You can also pay via PayPal below.
See our How To Sell an Ad document for guidelines and suggestions. You can use our sample text as a starting point when you sell ads. Feel free to edit it as you wish.
Advertisers will need to fill out an ad contract (click to open). Checks should be made out to "Theatre Guild Booster Club."
You only need to sell one of our smallest ad spaces (Business Card size) to get your deposit fully refunded, and you won't need to sell another ad for the rest of the entire year!
