Stage A Benefit

We love partnering with local non-profits to produce concerts that benefit us both. In January of 2012, for example, The State Theatre partnered with disabilities services charity Easter Seals on “Heart of Gold,” a concert featuring local musicians playing the music of Neil Young. The event was a smashing success, earning both organizations $17,000.

We recommend a 12-month lead time to plan and market these events, and we are mindful of not saturating the market with too many similar kinds of concerts. However, if you have an active organization with lots of initiative, let’s talk!
