Season Underwriter

Sponsoring a Purple Rose production is making a personal investment in American theatre and in a community we all share.

Sponsor benefits are offered at varying levels of support and appeal to a wide range of interests. Depending on your sponsorship level, exclusive benefits may include priority seating, complimentary and discounted tickets, recognition in publications, invitations to new play readings, rehearsals, and opening night galas, VIP event tickets, complimentary signed scripts, private backstage tours and more.

We want you to have the very best sponsorship experience possible; so we will work closely with you to customize your benefits to respond to your specific interests that best meet your needs.
