What does it mean to be a sponsor of Essential Theatre or one of our programs?
Being an Essential Theatre sponsor means that you care about what we care about and you want to be a part of that process – maybe not up on stage, but in other, equally important ways. By choosing to become an Essential Theatre sponsor, you are supporting the longest-running theatre dedicated exclusively to supporting the work of Georgia playwrights. You are helping to give Georgia playwrights a voice by supporting the production of their work here at home and providing a launching pad for their work to be seen and appreciated around the country and the world! You are saying, “I am committed to good theatre. I believe that Georgia playwrights are producing some of the best theatre around, and I want the world to know!”
Who should become an Essential Theatre sponsor?
Anyone interested in supporting Georgia’s writers and artists; anyone who enjoys seeing great theatre; anyone who believes that Georgia’s playwrights are great American playwrights, too; anyone who wants to support Essential Theatre’s work, or who has enjoyed our work in the past; anyone who is excited to see new creative and cultural opportunities in West End, where our Festival takes place, and in Georgia as a whole.
