Advertising

Advertise your business to our educated, affluent audience. Every patron who comes through our door for a professional performance or a youth show is handed a copy of our souvenir program.

You can reach 10,000 people at more than 80 performances of 9 different shows throughout the year – and we limit the number of ads we sell to ensure that folks actually read the program and see you in print.

So reserve your ad early by filling out and returning our Spec-Sheet. Mid-year advertising opportunities may also be available. Contact Elly Lichenstein at 707-763-8920 or elly@cinnabartheater.org.

In-Kind Gifts

Whatever your product, whatever your skill, you can donate it to Cinnabar. Vintners, printers, brewers, designers, photographers, programmers, artists, accountants, and more…

As a nonprofit, we depend on you to create artistic miracles and still balance the budget. Do you have a product you want to get into people’s hands? Do you have a talent you want to offer our team?

Please contact Artistic Director Elly Lichenstein at 707-763-8920 or elly@cinnabartheater.org.

Why Cinnabar?

Yes, you’ll attract customers, raise your profile, and score a tax deduction – yet it’s so much more than that. Thanks to you, parents will access positive and productive activities for their kids. Children will learn essential skills such as communication, collaboration, and leadership. And audiences will unite in the transcendent experience of art. You can make it happen!

As a not-for-profit theater, we count on our community. To keep tickets and tuition affordable, and to provide scholarships for kids in need, Cinnabar depends on the generosity of its donors.

In fact, ticket sales only cover half our costs. With your support, we can continue presenting exquisite performances and youth enrichment programs right here in our hometown.
