American Southwest Theatre Company invites sponsorships

The American Southwest Theatre Company, in conjunction with New Mexico State University Department of Theatre Arts, is looking for season and single production sponsors for their 2007-08 season.

"Sponsorships are the lifeblood of our organization," said Tom Smith, producing artistic director and an associate professor of theater at NMSU. "They help us bring nationally-renowned guest artists to Las Cruces and support our community outreach and Theatre for Young Audiences programming. For example, a $1,000 sponsorship will allow 200 Las Cruces elementary school children to see our production of 'A Walk in the Desert' free-of-charge."

In exchange for financial support, sponsors enjoy a host of benefits including complimentary tickets to productions and recognition in all playbills.

"Upwards of 15,000 people are exposed to our sponsors' ads in our playbills," Smith said. "There are no other arts organizations in this area that provide that kind of exposure."
