University Theatre Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship opportunities

NINE EXCITING AND BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTIONS

Every year, approximately 20,000 patrons attend our exciting, beautiful performances. Sponsors of University Theatre benefit from advertising to arts supporters with discretionary income who engage with businesses which support the arts in our community. Our productions showcase the talents of our students of dance, drama, musical theatre and opera — and University Theatre features the work of up to 750 student performers, musicians, designers and technicians, at an annual cost of over $270,000 without taxpayer dollars.

University Theatre also extends into the local community and offers outreach and educational opportunities for those of all ages. University Theatre offers subsidized performance tickets to OU students, so that they may enjoy great arts and culture right on campus without financial burden. We also travel to local schools, showcasing the many talents of our students and giving young audiences the opportunity to experience the fine arts in a way they would not otherwise have. Many of those attending University Theatre productions are loyal to those businesses who help to support our local community in arts education.

Productions are designed by our students, who have regularly received regional and national awards for designs created for University Theatre productions. Without your support, University Theatre could not continue.

TO BECOME A SEASON SPONSOR, please contact David Barocio, Director of Development, Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts, at (405) 325-7376.
