Shakespeare Opera Theatre brings together exceptional multi-talented actors, singers and orchestra to pair opera and incidental music with Shakespeare’s plays, and present other classic and classically inspired works.

Here are some fun ways of becoming SOT Royalty by showing your support through season underwriting and more:





If you are interested in underwriting the season as a major sponsor, please contact us to discuss a category that best suits your organization or business, with benefits to match your wishes. Examples: Orchestra: $10,000, Costumes: $5,000, General: $2,500, or any category and amount that feels right to you. To be considered a major supporter, make a gift of $2,500 or more. This level unlocks complimentary tickets and refreshments, special meet-the-artists events, priority seating, and more!

Examples of thank yous to sponsors include:

  • Tickets for you and guests to one seating for each show in both seasons
  • Special seating and complimentary refreshments at all events for you and guests
  • Advertisement/comments space in our printed program
  • Curtain acknowledgement
  • Website acknowledgement
  • Program acknowledgement as season underwriter/sponsor
  • Social media and YouTube mentions
  • Lobby display for sponsors’ featured business or nonprofit

Just let us know how you’d like us to thank you!

We can’t possibly express our extreme gratitude for your generosity in considering sponsorship of our organization. Thank you for your continued support of the arts in our region.
