CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT OUR 40TH SEASON!
2019-2020 SEASON & PLAY SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Forty years of making inclusive theater that enchants and enthralls is an achievement that cheers and humbles us. Thanks to the generous sponsorship support of individuals and businesses, we have been able to develop and sustain an impressive repertoire of new and original plays and music, innovative audience accessibility programs, and projects for participants with disabilities. We have been the recipient of numerous awards—most recently the 2019 Community Partner Impact Award from Michigan Humanities. We appreciate when patrons reaffirm what a long-time, local treasure we have been:
Loved it as always! Used to bring my kids, now bringing my grandson.
• I have been coming for years. First with my son and now with my 5-year-old daughter. Thank you for a wonderful family experience that is affordable and valuable. I love your productions!
• Very professional performance + excellent actors + a great company for the community.
• I attended the theater years ago as a child and it was so special to bring my own now.
Wild Swan Theater has a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities available to individuals and businesses. Sponsorships come with many benefits, including marketing visibility to thousands of website visitors and more than 10,000 mainstage patrons; ticket vouchers which can be used to recognize employees and thank clients; and the pride of supporting local, award-winning theater.
