Advertise in Our Program

Audience members attending our productions are greeted with a high quality program upon entering the theatre. Within this program is a description of the play and additional information about the production. Local businesses are encouraged to advertise in our program as a way of sponsoring the production. Our performances reach out to a variety of people working and living within our community. Please consider placing an advertisement within our program.

Donate Goods or Services

Artistic productions require a lot of props and costumes and the work that goes on off stage is integral to our performances. If you are able to donate goods or services that can be used to create high quality costumes, work as props, or build the stage, please consider donating. Donations of goods and services also fuel our concession stand and the printed programs that are given to audience members.

San Jose Youth Shakespeare is generously supported, in part, by a Cultural Affairs grant from the City of San Jose. We are also grateful for grants from Silicon Valley Creates and Links Through Learning.
