University Theatre Sponsorship Opportunities

University Theatre Sponsorship

 

We invite you to be part of our new season as a University theatre sponsor!

Sponsors who purchase at the producer level and higher will receive the added value of OU social media. OU University Theatre reaches a global audience and over 30,000 local patrons of the arts. Our email blasts reach nearly 4,000 individuals with a click-through rate that is double the industry average.

Productions are designed by our students, who have regularly received regional and national awards for designs created for University Theatre productions. With your support, University Theatre will continue to produce quality performances.

Go online for safe and secure sponsor application.
