Dear Friend of MDI Drama, Click here to view or download the campaign letter
I am pleased to announce the
2016 MDI Drama Fall Musical Sponsorship Campaign for our production of Tarzan. As you may remember, in the past we have offered a chance to support the great work of our young thespians by purchasing production sponsorships. In return, we offer premiums such as the placement of your business ads or special messages in the program and pre-show video presentation, recognition in the show’s program, and tickets to the performances.
The pre-show slide presentation, which premiered in 1999, was the first endeavor of its kind on MDI — the idea is much the same as you may have seen before the feature presentation in a movie theater. At the $100 Director or above level of giving our full-color ad will be projected onto the downstage screen during the pre-show for each of our six performances of Tarzan. Along with photos from previous shows at MDIHS, interesting facts, and trivia, your ad will reach as many as 2400 local people.
All revenues generated by this campaign will directly benefit the Black Rose Fund to renovate the Higgins-Demas Theater in memory of Ashleigh Littlefield, a beloved MDI Drama thespian. The fund has already accomplished great things, including facilitating a rebuild of the entire stage and the purchase of new stage fabrics.
All that we ask from you is to submit your payment, ad information and/or camera-ready ad (.gif or .jpeg) for the $100 Director or above level on or by November 4th. That way we have time to put the finishing touches on the slideshow and program.
To get started, just scroll down this page to complete the convenient form.
This is a great opportunity to support the positive efforts of our young people on and off the island. Your sponsorship will help ensure our ability to continue providing performance opportunities to our young community.
