Meet CTG's Show and Event Sponsors
Please join CTG in thanking—and supporting—our wonderful sponsors. Because of their generous commitment to CTG, we are able to fulfill our mission: Bringing our diverse community together to learn about, experience, and celebrate the joys of theatre.
Sponsor a CTG Show
A 2006 National Endowment for the Arts study found that people who participate in the Arts are people who help make communities thrive…and a vibrant, thriving community is good for business!
With well over 30,000 people participating in or seeing CTG productions and programs each year, corporations and other organizations certainly enhance their visibility across our community when they sponsor CTG shows. At the same time, these sponsorship investments support CTG in its quest to provide high-quality theatrical experiences to ever-greater numbers of children, teens, adults, and seniors.
When you invest in CTG, you are also investing in the education of children and teens across our community. Arts education and participating in art activities help young people build the tools they need to understand the human experience, adapt to and respect others’ ways of working and thinking, develop creative problem-solving skills, and communicate thoughts and ideas in a variety of ways.
Take advantage of CTG's wide range of sponsorship opportunities
CTG sponsorships are available for every 2011-2012 main-stage production and other programs (such as TRIAD IDOL and family-focused productions including The Wizard of Oz). Opportunities run the gamut from presenting sponsors to less expensive packages, and all provide outstanding benefits, including recognition in advertisements, programs, and other materials related to the production as well as blocks of tickets for the sponsors' employees, clients, and family members.
For information on specific opportunities, please e-mail CTG's Director of Operations Rich Gilliland or call him at (336) 333-7470, x202.

Fun Facts about being a sponsor and its benefits
83% of Americans wish more of the products, services and retailers they use would support causes.
Although supporting a cause has become a mainstream business strategy for many companies, its growth hasn’t deterred consumer interest, passion or behavior. In fact, Americans are as amenable toward cause marketing as ever:
88% of Americans say it is acceptable for companies to involve a cause or issue in their marketing. This record number represents a 33% increase since Cone began measuring in 1993 (66%).
85% of consumers have a more positive image of a product or company when it supports a cause they care about.
90% of consumers want companies to tell them the ways they are supporting causes. Put another way: More than 278 million people in the U.S. want to know what a company is doing to benefit a cause.
The opportunities for innovation and deeper engagement in cause are immense. The masses are incredibly attuned to cause branding, but they are not yet satisfied. This is quite clear, as 83 percent of Americans wish more of the products, services and retailers they use would support causes.
