Corporate Sponsors

Corporate sponsors provide invaluable support toward developing Enlightened Theatrics’ year-round theatrical and educational offerings. Sponsoring Enlightened Theatrics’ Broadway Series Season provides Salem businesses a rare opportunity to make a tax-deductible donation to a non-profit organization, support the necessity of performing arts, all while increasing your company’s goodwill exposure and involvement in the Salem community.

Sponsorships apply to our yearly season. Tickets may be redeemed for any of our three Broadway Series productions. Committed Sponsorships can be invoiced quarterly (February, May, August, November) or a month prior to production opening dates depending on your preference.

While Season Sponsors can enjoy the convenience of scheduled invoicing and other benefits to all productions, we understand that certain programming suits different organizations better than others, which is why show-specific Sponsorships are also available.
