Advertise with Blank Canvas Theatre

Why should your business advertise in our Playbill?

Advertisers in the Playbill enjoy a relationship with excellence. Blank Canvas Theatre provides professional high quality theatre, at affordable prices, using local talent both onstage and behind the scenes. We have continued our commitment toward a sustainable and affordable ticket price (only $18).  However, our theater could not exist without the generous support we've received from the Cleveland community and your ad purchase helps to ensure our success.

“In a handful of years, Ciamacco, the artistic director of the hole-in-the- wall company, has built an enviably broad customer base, as evidenced by devotees who flooded the 78th Street Studios on opening night to see "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," selling out the house. And even better, for the future of theatergoing in Cleveland, many seemed not to be regular patrons of the stage.”

– Andrea  Simakis (The Plain Dealer)

Our advertisers receive exposure to a large, captive audience. Our season is carefully chosen to offer varied assortment of theatre and entertainment selections, which in turn attract a diverse audience of season subscribers and single ticket buyers. The Playbill is distributed to every patron at each performance and is a “must read”. It contains director’s notes, cast biographies, upcoming theatre events, donor information and your advertisement.

BCT advertisers appreciate a long shelf life. Our season includes over 65 performances at which a Playbill will be distributed. Many patrons take it home to peruse at their leisure or save as a keepsake. In fact, audience members are often seen asking the actors to autograph the Playbill.
