color logoWhy Advertise With South Valley Civic Theatre?

South Valley Civic Theatre (SVCT) offers a variety of productions to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to explore their talents: children, teens, and adults; singers and dancers; comedic and dramatic actors.

For you, the advertiser, the shows draw varying audiences allowing for both demographic focus and/or “broad-brush” type advertising.

Like with all advertising, the more consistently our patrons see you, the more likely they are to seek you out when they need a product or service that you offer. With SVCT, you have five shows during which you can promote your business – choose one, a combination, or all five.

Unlike other advertising that is strictly “self-serving,” promoting your business through South Valley Civic Theatre also tells the community that you and your business support the arts, specifically performing arts, in both Morgan Hill and Gilroy.

Sponsorship Opportunities

$1,200 per show

A sponsor’s logo is placed on all posters, direct mail (2,500 postcards), bulk email (typicaly 3 emails per show to 3,500 email addresses), and program covers.

This type of advertising is more “institutional” in nature, promoting the sponsor as a supporter of community theater. It has the greatest reach of all advertising opportunities as it reaches all SVCT subscribers – over 3000 – in addition to the patrons who see the show.

The 2019-2020 Season

Children’s Musical, “Cinderella”

Based on the classic fairy tale, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s adaptation will be performed by local children. With its familiar songs and plot, it will provide family entertainment for all ages, with the audience expected to be composed of children and parent- and grandparent-aged, family-focused adults.

Heart Warming Play, “Steel Magnolias”

Set in a beauty salon in small-town Louisiana, this popular play features well-drawn characters. We expect it to attract new audiences, such as groups of women attending together..

Jukebox Rock Musical, “Rock of Ages” (High School Edition)

Rock of Ages tells the story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. The cast will be composed of youth aged 13 to 19. Our teen productions regularly play to sold-out houses and appeal to a wide range of traditional adult audiences in addition to teens, parents, families, and grandparents.

Seductive, Compelling Masterpiece, ”Cabaret”

This intense Broadway hit has instant name recognition. We expect it to appeal to a broad range of adult audiences with well attended performances..

Modern Broadway Sensation, “Beauty and the Beast”

Another timeless and enduring classic fairy tale, this musical–with its captivating characters, costumes, and songs–is anticipated to appeal to theater goers of all ages. Given the broad appeal of the show and its well-known songs, we expect many of the performances to sell out.
