Why businesses are partnering with YMTC

  • Access to a captive audience: YMTC sells an average of 7,000 tickets each season (1800 - 2200 per production) to loyal audiences that include families with young children and teens, senior citizens, and music and theater aficionados of all ages..  Our performers, crew, staff, and musicians number over 100 families per production.  The YMTC community hails from Berkeley, Oakland, Albany, El Cerrito, Lafayette, Orinda, Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Marin and beyond.  Let us introduce you!
  • Make your presence known: YMTC distributes 2,000 postcards to Bay Area households per show (6,000 per season), 1,000 posters per season displayed in prominent East Bay locations and businesses. The YMTC website receives over 17,000 unique visitors and 68,000 page views each year.  As a Season Sponsor, your logo and corporate identity will extend it’s reach.
  • Enrich your community: YMTC trains over 200 young performers ranging from age 12-21, annually. Drawing students from diverse backgrounds and Bay Area communities, we sponsor 40% of our participants through full and partial scholarships. Our students leave YMTC with a deeper capacity to imagine, create, and perform at a professional level. They develop self-confidence, a greater sense of community responsibility and learn to participate energetically in the collaborative process with adult professionals.
  • Support Youth Education: In the current harsh economic climate, opportunities for young artists to develop these strengths are diminishing along with financial support for the performing arts. YMTC is committed to ensuring this doesn't happen in our community, because our young people are not only the next generation of artists, but the next generation of engaged citizens.  YMTC graduates have gone on to the nation’s top performing arts programs such as NYU’s Tish School of the Arts,  UCLA’s School of Theater and Film, and Carnegie Mellon University. Be a part of their success!
