Series Sponsorship

A series is a grouping of like genres or performances by different artists. The Opera House collects these artist and performances and bundles them for our guests to purchase. Throughout the performing arts industry this is a best practice which allows guests to purchase tickets for a genre they truly enjoy without purchasing other tickets to other performance. In addition, it assists in offering a discount to the guest for purchasing more than one performance instead of a purchase by performance scenario.

A series is no less than 4 shows per genre; meaning the exposure is very high for your organization or name.

Benefits:

  • 10 (ten) complimentary tickets to each performance in the series selected for sponsorship

The Newberry Opera House has been fortunate to have a number of generous donors to assist with the cost of the Renovation. There is a particularly touching story about Walter Sims - one of the first donations the Newberry Opera House received.
