Grand Island Little Theatre has been going strong for almost 60 seasons! And most of that is attributed to our volunteers who offer their time, talents and creativity to put on live productions that enrich the community, appeal to a wide audience and put a smile on everyone's face. Our mission at GILT is to entertain, educate and enlighten.
Of course, we also receive support through individual ticket purchases, season ticket purchases, additional giving, and corporate and show sponsorships.
There are different giving levels, ranging from $70 to $500+. As the giving level increases, so do the perks! Season membership at certain giving levels receive name recognition in the season program and are given the first opportunity to request seating preferences. Season memberships are sold between July and September, giving ample time to include donor names in the season program.
For more information on the different giving levels, please download our Season Brochure or call our Box Office at 308-382-2586
SPONSORSHIP & advertising
Every season, Grand Island Little Theatre extends multiple Corporate Sponsorship opportunities to businesses that are looking to reach a captive audience and show their support for local fine arts.
There are sponsorship levels to match every business budget. Each sponsorship includes a set of benefits including program advertising, season tickets, lobby signage and additional name recognition.
Because ads appear in the season program, sponsorships are typically sold in July and August. Thank you to those businesses who have sponsored our 2019-2020 season.
Show Sponsorships allow businesses to advertise during the run of a particular show. These sponsors receive show tickets, program advertising and recognition in the show's promotional materials. This level of sponsorship allows you to have an intense presence during one show. It's a good fit for businesses who may have a tie to the show, either by having employees or friends in the show, or by topic. For instance, the show, "Is There Life After 50?" would be a great fit for a retirement community. Contact us to see if there's a show perfect for your business!

Grand Island Little Theatre is proud to provide live theatre through the dedication of volunteers. Obviously, a successful theatre season requires the talent of actors and actresses. But there are various behind-the-scenes people involved with GILT. Directors, producers, costume designers, stage builders and ushers are just some of the people that help pull off each and every show.
Whether you have a creative spark or business savvy, we could use you.
