Current sponsorship opportunities include:
Stage/2 Capital Campaign—Launched in our 40th anniversary year (2006), the Stage/2 building renovation project includes essential upgrades that will strengthen our historic structure while providing a more comfortable, modernized experience for our growing community of patrons, artists, and volunteers. This transformative project also addresses long-standing limitations of our historic building. Working with esteemed architect Michael Dowling, ASGT has developed an exciting concept design and completed Phase One, with many improvements made to the building’s exterior. With your support, we can begin Phase Two and create a beautiful, comfortable, functional new space that honors the building’s history and is usable year-round. Learn more about the project here.
Stage/2: Power Up! Campaign—This fall, ASGT will upgrade our historic building from residential power to commercial three-phase power. This is an essential project without which we cannot continue to run theatrical-grade lighting and sound equipment without potentially catastrophic results. The upgrade will also lay the groundwork to heat and cool the building for year-round use. Through the Power Up! campaign, ASGT aims to raise the funds necessary to ensure the theatre is fully charged for the future. Your gift will empower us to move forward with the upgrade this fall and continue bringing theatre under the stars to downtown Annapolis for years to come. Learn more about the project here.
Season, Production, Weekend, and Performance Sponsorships—When you sponsor a performance, a weekend of performances, a production, or the entire ASGT performance season, your support stays right here in your local community and provides essential resources that help us shine brightly. You also reach new prospective customers/clients and enjoy special benefits based on your level of investment. We’d love to help you explore the possibilities.
ASGT is happy to tailor a sponsorship package just for you. Please e-mail the Development Director and include your phone number and the best time to call.
