2018 Buyout Program

As part of Circle Theatre's commitment to partnering with other community organizations, agencies and business, we invite you to participate in our Buyout Program. This program offers your organization a unique theatrical experience by providing a private performance, and a chance to mingle with and meet the actors and production staff! This program also allows your organization to fund-raise with little effort.

It's easy. You receive 400 tickets for the buyout price of $4,000 for musicals and $3,500 for plays. You have the option of giving the tickets to your group or staff for free or using this opportunity as a fundraiser for your organization. By selling your 400 tickets for $25 each, you have the potential of raising over $6,000 for your organization in one night!

You can also hold a reception before or after the show as part of your fundraiser. Aquinas College's Conferencing Department will be glad to assist you with your party planning & catering needs.
