Sponsoring a season, a series or a program at Mount Baker Theatre offers the business community-major corporations and small businesses alike-an opportunity to advance Bellingham as the place to see highly acclaimed national touring shows including Broadway productions and world-class dramas, dance and musical performances. Sponsorships help defray the cost of the artist fee and keep ticket prices affordable for a wide segment of the area's population.
Support the Education Program
The MBT Education Program provides youth with genuine learning experiences that engage their minds, hearts and bodies. Each year, thousands of local school children come to the Theatre for a live, professional theatre performance. They include a mix of matinee performances from our regular Main Stage season as well as shows that are exclusive to the Education Program. This is often the students first, and sometimes only, connection to the performing arts. If your community involvement includes children’s education, sponsoring the Education Program will give benefits that last a lifetime.
