Join the Show!

An important partner of any theatre performance is the sponsorship group. Tickets only provide about 30% of any theatre's annual income and the rest comes from fundraising and sponsorships. Buying a program ad not only helps us to defray our costs but it increases your visibility in the downtown Redwood City community. Highlight your support of Redwood City's flourishing arts community by purchasing a high value, low cost program ad or other advertising opportunity at the Dragon Theatre! We have several options for you to choose from. 

 

Program Ads
 

Ads in the Main Stage Season Program

The Main Stage Season has four different plays that perform 16 times each. At 65 seats a performance that means that as many as 1200 people will see your ad in our program. We keep our rates low to make it affordable for small businesses on a budget because we know that money is tight.

Ads in the 2nd Stages Program

Dragon's brand new 2nd Stages series launched in 2014. It's intended to give other artists the opportunity to fully produce their passion projects with funding and mentorship from the Dragon's staff. This series will develop new local theatre makers with the support of an established theatre company. 2nd Stages shows run for three weeks only on Thursays - Saturdays at 8p and Sundays at 2p. Therefore with 12 performances at a maximum of 65 seats your ad would be potentially seen by more than 750 people. This audience will likely be a more diverse audience than your traditional theatregoing audience as it pushes some boundaries. 

 

Ad rates for the 2nd Stages program are as follows: 

  • (pending)

An Ad In the Front Window

The Dragon Theatre has a large television screen that hangs in the front window adjacent to Philz Coffee and faces out toward the sidewalk so that passers by can see what's going on at the Dragon Theatre.

Ad space is currently $100 a month to run one image in the random shuffle rotation displayed on the screen. The display is highly visible and attracts a number of eyeballs from folks hanging out around the Philz and passing by on the sidewalk.

Your ad would need to be submitted as a JPG in portrait orientation at 1080 X 1920 at a resolution of at least 72dpi. If you're interested in buying ad space, please contact Kimberly Wadycki, Managing Director, at kim (at) dragonproductions.net. There is a bulk rate discount if you buy more than 2 months at a time.
