Current Advertising Rates — Summer Season Playbill

What is Available?

Program advertising in the summer season program is divided into eighth page, quarter page, and half page vertical and horizontal slots. Full page ad slots are also available inside, and on the insides of the front and back covers. One program is produced for the entire summer season so advertising slots are limited, but will connect to our audiences for the full seven to eight weeks of our season run.

As an added bonus, our summer playbill will also be available online for patrons to read. The program we use automatically highlights and links web addresses, so we encourage advertisers to include their website in their ad.

How to Submit Ads

The advertiser must submit camera-ready ads in the form of electronic PDF files for publication and assumes liability for all content and layout of the copy submitted. Ad placement is made at the discretion of Playhouse staff. Ad copy should be e-mailed to Brenda Bourdon.

E-ticket Advertising Rates

When patrons print their e-tickets at home, or when box office staff print e-tickets at the City Hall Box Office, your ad will appear below each ticket, up to two per page. We recommended this option for coupons or deals requiring that patrons show a Playhouse item to receive discounts. Advertisers may pick the show for which tickets will display their ad, based upon availability.

Approximately 4,000 e-tickets were printed during our 2016 Summer Theatre Festival!
