We are always looking for businesses, organizations, and individuals to support our company by advertising in our Playbill magazine. Ticket sales cover only a portion of our annual expenses, even when shows sell out. As a professional not-for-profit organization, we depend on the generous support of our advertisers, production partners, and individual contributors to help balance the budget. Your advertisement helps to subsidize production costs (such as sets and costumes) and allows us to maintain our standard of presenting professional high-quality productions.


The performance Playbill is an exclusive magazine that provides information to patrons that is necessary to the understanding and enjoyment of the production. The professional booklets include biographies on company artists and creative team members, details of upcoming productions, feature profiles on company donors, corporate partners and other significant contributors, and of course advertisements that highlight and promote entertainment, travel, fashion, dining, and other categories geared towards the lifestyle of active theatregoers.


Designed with a stylish, classic, and high-quality interior and exterior, our Playbills highlight advertisers in a professional, sophisticated, and chic manner by providing promotional opportunities to further advance their public image, brand, and products directly to our captive audiences. In addition to reading their Playbill magazine before each performance and during intermission, most audience members take their programs home for further browsing. This provides advertisers with an additional opportunity to capitalize on their investment.


The National Stage Company of Canada will produce on average between 24,000 & 40,000 Playbills per season. With your support you will not only be reaching tens of thousands of potential new consumers within a wide and diverse market; but also have the chance to broaden your reach in cities and towns across the region when the National Stage Company is on tour.


Play a leading role...become a distinguished advertiser and join our network of supporters today.
