Sponsors Needed For Our Summer Season!

The Soo Theatre Project continues to have an artistic impact on Sault Ste. Marie like no other. It is best seen downtown with storefront renovations that have changed the face of our small town. Music and dance classes with renowned faculty, artistic, and live performances are all a part of what is happening with our stately old theatre.

Unique to the Soo Theatre Project is the fact that while work continues, the shows will go on! The summer begins with a special presentation of Mozart's The Magic Flute and includes a full musical production of Annie with over 60 local artists and orchestra.

The Soo Theatre Project has begun to enhance the cultural health of our area, with dance lessons, instrumental education, art projects, and world class entertainment. The participation and financial support of hundreds of volunteers has helped the project move forward in swift fashion.

A unique opportunity now exists for you to participate with a seasonal sponsorship. The Soo Theatre Project is a non-profit organization and relies on the community's financial support with your tax-deductible donations.

Attractive as this aspect is, there is much more! For instance, a $1000 seasonal sponsorship will yield a full-page ad in all entertainment programs, a presence on the lobby signage, and a pair of season tickets! You will also be able to take pride in the knowledge that you are supporting one of the most important and vital projects in the history of the area.

For details on how you can become a sponsor, see the flyer on our website.

Be a part of the shaping of our future...good for you, good for the Soo!
