Advertising Opportunities

Ads in the Ithaca Shakespeare Company's season programs can help your business reach thousands of playgoers each season, while demonstrating your support for the arts in Ithaca.

Our Shakespeare program has been growing for more than 12 years and can offer local businesses great exposure to a wide spectrum of customers:

  • Our total annual attendance is approximately 5,000 people, which can include as many as 500-600 spectators at individual outdoor performances.
  • Audience members in 2014 came from 37 states and 31 foreign countries, from every major city in New York State, and from throughout the Central New York region.
  • Our productions have proven to have a very broad appeal, with audience members ranging from families with young children, to university professors, students, and alumni, to business and community leaders, to retired seniors. We take special pride in making Shakespeare's works exciting and accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and our audience demographics reflect that commitment.
  • Our program has received enthusiastic support from the Tompkins County Tourism Program, the Cornell Council for the Arts, Cornell Plantations, the Cornell and Ithaca College Theatre Departments, and the Tompkins County Community Arts Partnership.

We invite you to join us in building a world-class Shakespeare festival by purchasing a reasonably priced program ad.
