Restaurant, Pubs & Hotel Suppliers - €1,000/Performance
With 25 actors and crew members and audiences of 1,000 per performance, there are ample opportunities for local pubs and restaurants to become the official pre-show dining and/or post show drinking establishments of the production.
Official Picnic Suppliers - €1,000/Performance
One of the benefits of producing Summer Shakespeare in large, outdoor venues, is that audiences can bring pic-nics and dine during the show. Picnicking at Summer Shakespeare is one of the most fun and unique aspects of our event. Picnicking at the venue has become such a tradition that many revelers bring enough to share with newbies who come unprepared. This creates a fantastic opportunity for local restaurants and food vendors, who can sponsor the production and offer picnic supplies or picnic hampers exclusively for the shows. Average audience attendance for each performance is between 800 to 1,000 which can drive a huge return on investment. Picnic suppliers will be promoted to our audiences through all media channels.
The CSR Imperative
Corporate Social Responsibility has become essential in today’s competitive market and one of the biggest hurdles is finding the right partner.
Fortune’s Fool Productions wants to create long term, sustainable CSR partnerships that can grow with us over the next 3 to 5 years.
We are a professional artistic organisation that strives for theatrical excellence, we engage in education through entertainment, our shows are free and available to everyone in our community, and we perform in Irish Heritage Sites across the country. (We tick more than a few boxes.)
We will perform for 20,000+ people this summer and our publicity will reach more than 500,000. That’s a lot of reach, a lot of promotion of sponsorship and a lot of potential brand loyalty from our audiences. Many CSR initiatives don’t have this kind of impact.
Our Finishing Touch
Invite stakeholders to take part in this fantastic event. You’ll get VIP seating at any venue and we will set up meet & greets with the cast after any show. For sponsorships of €10,000 or more, we can also come perform excerpts from the show or we can provide team building and creative workshops for your staff.
"Staging [Taming of the Shrew] in Ireland with the referendum for marriage equality a recent memory, Fortune’s Fool Productions succeeds in making us think about love, power, society, the construction of unjust hierarchies, and the strangeness of social ritual, where the absurd and the sublime often collide."
--- Emily Y. O'Brien, Shakespeare in Ireland
“We had an AMAZING time and I would especially like to thank the Picnic Angel who was sitting behind my friend and I...who handed me a fleece blanket when it got chilly. Thank you so much.”
