Be a Part of the Anything Goes Playbill!

Opening night for our production of Anything Goes is just 65 days away!  Rehearsals are in full swing, the set has be started and so has the playbill.

We want to have a playbill like last year’s full color program for In The Heights, and once again we are asking for advertising to cover the printing costs of such a beautiful program and souvenir of the production.  We’ve attached here the advertising form for the playbill with the costs for the various ad sizes.  Just click the download link below and print it out.

Last year, over 3500 people saw at least one of the 2000 copies of the In The Height’s playbill.  Whether your are advertising a business or wishing all the best to a member of our cast, putting an ad in our playbill is certainly the way to go.

It is best if you provide a copy ready ad in either a jpeg or Adobe PDF format and email as per the instructions on the form.  If you need us to put your message together, send an email with what you’d like and we’ll take care of it.
