Each production at Cygnet requires countless hours of work by many devoted artists. In addition to paying these talented people, there are costs for supplies and equipment, marketing and program printing and upkeep of the theatre and rehearsal hall. As an Associate Producer, you help defray these costs and allow us to provide high quality productions to the community.
As a Technical or Orchestra sponsor for a production you provide vital funding to purchase various behind the scenes technical equipment from lighting grids to microphones. Your generosity also allows us to hire the backstage staff necessary for the show to run smoothly, night after night.
At Cygnet we hire a live Orchestra for each of our musicals and although the musicians may not be visible to the audience, they play a critical role in creating a complete and exciting musical experience for our audience. Musicians begin rehearsals several weeks before they actually start working with the actors. They then provide the score for subsequent rehearsals and the run of the production. By sponsoring the Orchestra, you help us hire top-quality professional musicians that are among San Diego’s finest.
As a Production Sponsor you help underwrite the costs of producing a show. From keeping the lights on in the theatre to renting the rehearsal hall; from paying actors and designers to printing the programs and marketing materials; from paying box office staff to purchasing props and costumes, your support is like rain on a garden, allowing all aspects of the production to come to fruition.
Each season, Cygnet produces at least six main stage productions and performs to more than 45,000 patrons. Presenting a year-round season of classics, musicals, and off-Broadway style shows, Cygnet has garnered over 130 awards in 15 years. By becoming a Season Sponsor, you give Cygnet the freedom to continue to present a wide variety of high-quality, daring and diverse programming at an affordable price.
Most donors at the Angel level direct their gifts toward general operating expenses, allowing the flexibility to use the funds where and when they are most needed. Whether used to pay the rent or hire staff or purchase equipment, gifts at this level have the largest impact overall.
