We are pleased to have launched a new corporate sponsorship program for SHN (Shorenstein Hays – Nederlander Theatres), the leading producer of Broadway shows in the San Francisco Bay Area and the owner of three historic SF theatres – the Orpheum, Golden Gate and Curran. SHN has had corporate sponsors in the past but allowed their program to wind down over the past couple of years so that a fresh new offering could be taken to market.
We are now seeking sponsors for the lead position of their season series as well as for targeted category positions. Perhaps most exciting is the opportunity for one company to place their name on the Orpheum Theatre, with brand integration throughout all related media, event promotion and at the venue. This will be the highest-profile naming opportunity in San Francisco since the opening of Pacific Bell Park in 2000 (also developed by BSS), and will be handled with just the right balance of corporate branding and historic preservation.
SHN has been the face of Broadway in San Francisco for 35 years, bringing the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed shows to Bay Area audiences. SHN presents celebrated new works, popular classics, and pre-Broadway World Premieres including Wicked, Mamma Mia!, Legally Blonde and Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway – all of which premiered at SHN venues before becoming smash hits in New York and around the world.
The sponsorships include integration into annual media valued at over $10 million along with access to all three theatres, visited by 800,000 people per year attending hundreds of performances. In the 2012-2013 Season, the wildly popular Book of Mormon makes its Bay Area debut. SHN audiences can also look forward to encore performances of The Lion King, Jersey Boys and Wicked, as well as the pre-Broadway World Premiere of Diner and the family favorite Mary Poppins.

With the incredible value included in the sponsorship offerings, we are expecting that the lead season position and the theatre naming opportunity will be snapped up quickly.
