Join us as a sponsor for the 2019/2020 Main Stage season and reap the benefits of advertising, promotion, and exposure to a sophisticated audience. Over 26,000 people come to shows and events throughout the year—over 26% coming from outside Cowlitz County. The exposure your business will receive (from radio ads and direct mailings to regionally placed posters, online marketing, and more) makes sponsorship a solid choice! The season runs from September 2019 through May 2020 and includes 14 main stage performances, 10 classic films and four Rainy Months shows for young families.
