2020 Freeman Stage Sponsorship FAQs

1. Will the reserved seating for general admission shows be different for the 2020 season?

Yes! You asked for it and it's happening! When you purchase tickets for a General Admission — BYOC performance, as a sponsor, you will have the option to select your sponsor seats in the reserved sponsor seating area in the front of the venue. It will be just like the experience when you purchase tickets for a Fixed Seating Event.

2. Will we use clips to mark our sponsor chairs for general admission performances?

No, it will not be necessary. When you purchase your ticket, you will select a specific seat in a specific row and that’s where you will sit for the performance.

3. Will there be changes to sponsor credentials for the 2020 season?

Yes for Patron, Supporting Actor, Lead Actor & Director levels. There are no changes for the Associate Producer level and higher.

4. What are the changes to the sponsor credentials for the Patron, Supporting Actor, Lead Actor & Director sponsorship levels?

The credentials at these levels are non-transferrable. Each credential will have a picture of the owner on it. The owner is the only person who can use the credential and the benefits it provides. Each sponsorship at these levels will receive two (2) season credentials.

5. How will I receive my credentials and VIP Passes (if included with sponsorship)?

Credentials and VIP Passes, as applicable, will be mailed to sponsors approximately 2-3 weeks before the beginning of the season. Please safeguard your credentials and VIP Passes because they will only be issued one time even if they are lost or misplaced.

6. Why are you making these changes?

Audiences for our programs have grown steadily over the last several years and our existing facilities are not suited to comfortably accommodate our expanding sponsor base. We want to make sure we can continue to equitably deliver a first-class experience to all our sponsors now, as well as when we transition into the new Freeman Arts Pavilion that will soon be under construction with a target opening in our 2022 season.
