E. J. Thomas Performing
Arts Hall, Lock 3 Live! and the Akron Civic Theatre’s marketing campaign includes significant schedules
on region-wide TV and radio stations, as well as a weekly print presence
in the Akron Beacon Journal, West Side Leader and area weekly papers.
Community-wide distribution of direct mail pieces reaches more than
300,000 people each year. Season sponsor benefits include additional
exposure with exclusive logo placement on advertising and promotional
activity, including the theaters’ web sites, with combined
hits of 387,000 each year.
Sponsorship provides a connection and identification with two of
the region’s most prestigious arts organizations. This
connection links a sponsor with our mission of providing the
world’s best performing arts to the entire region. Sponsorship
also highlights your organization’s commitment to serving
the northeast Ohio community.
The events held at all three venues are the recipients of substantial
media coverage in the form of reviews, pre-views, and feature stories.
Local media frequently interviews Guest artists, and many events
are featured in print, including the cover of the Thursday Beacon
Journal Enjoy! section.
Sponsorship includes access to outstanding facilities for post-show
VIP receptions. Available spaces include E. J. ’s dramatic
lobbies, the Civic Theatre’s new donor recognition lobby
located on the mezzanine level, and a wonderful outdoor patio
overlooking Lock 3 park.
