It's that time of year again!
Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) is thrilled to be preparing for its next great season! The 2018-2019 season is just around the corner and what an amazing season it’s going to be. In addition to an exciting new line up – the TCA is also looking to update equipment including our air conditioning units and boiler system, the theater's sound and light control boards, and repairing the stained glass window in the TCA lobby just in time for the new season.
Last year’s season broke many records. We had the highest number of season ticket holders in a decade, an increased number of patrons overall and an increase in sponsorships. We also had more shows, more renters, and increased community support.
To help the theater move forward year after year, we need the support of local businesses. The TCA brought in over 20,000 people to Tecumseh last year. Our website traffic increased by 64%, compared to just one year ago! Patrons traveled from 32 Michigan counties and 13 states to attend TCA events last season. And we’re not done yet!
We want to continue highlighting business sponsors in our playbills, in our lobby, through posters and advertising and social media channels. New this yea, the TCA is giving Business Sponsors the opportunity to have their logo printed on show tickets and their logo or message included in our pre and post event emails. Just think of the possibilities to remind patrons about their upcoming show and encourage them to grab a bite to eat at one of our local restaurants before or after the event.
To say exciting things are happening would be an understatement. The TCA staff and volunteers have been hard at work to make all these things a reality. However, we cannot accomplish all our goals without the financial support of local businesses and donors. To keep the theater thriving and moving forward, we have set a couple of hefty goals this year and we’re looking for support from local businesses to help us reach our sponsorship goal of $18,000.
The money raised from Business Sponsorships help us book amazing talent through our National Touring Season. Your business sponsorship will help us reach our goals this season and in turn, we will gladly promote your business to the thousands of people that visit the theater each year. I hope you'll consider partnering with us, so we can continue to bring high caliber shows to the community.
