Sponsor a Production

Every year, Illinois Theatre mounts productions in the Studio Theatre and the Playhouse Festival Theatre of Krannert Center. These productions are our laboratories, offering students opportunities to hone their skills with an audience; to stage manage our professional-level productions; to design and build sets, props and costumes; to develop media and lighting designs and see them realized; to work with resident and guest directors as dramaturgs and assistants.


Each production is a large undertaking. Not surprisingly, the larger our budgets, the more opportunities we have to hire leading guest artists, to invest in new technologies, and to offer our students more freedom to let their design and technical imaginations grow. Your support of a specific production helps us maximize those opportunities. Sponsors are recognized in the program, invited to the opening night reception, and have the opportunity to attend rehearsal.


The 2022-2023 season offers many opportunities for sponsorship. To sponsor one of these productions, please contact the Head of the Theatre Department, Valleri Robinson; Assistant Director of Advancement, Bethany Whoric; or call (217) 333-2371.
