Storefront Theatre of Indianapolis is a small, non-profit theatre company that produces new work by underrepresented playwrights. We also host the work of Indianapolis artists in our gallery. We opened in 2016 and are located at 2416 E. 55th Pl in Broad Ripple.
Storefront pays fair wages to actors, stage managers, designers and playwrights that are consistent with small Equity theatres, and we do not take commissions from visual artists.
Our admissions are donation-only in order to increase access and inclusion to our performances.
We are supported by our individual donors, The Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, The Arts Council of Indianapolis, The Indiana Arts Commission, The Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, The Central Indiana Community Foundation and The Nicholas H. Noyes Memorial Jr. Foundation. Our primary form of earned income is via rentals to other performing arts companies. Our contributed vs. earned income split is 60/40.
Storefront offers sponsorship opportunities to individuals and organizations. Sponsorships are a great way to support Storefront's mission and annual goal, while giving the funder visual recognition in our facility and marketing materials. There are three ways to sponsor Storefront:
- Naming Rights
Storefront has several rooms in our facility including our gallery, dressing room, greenroom, box office and two offices. Each room comes with a suggested donation over the course of a certain number of years. Naming rights sponsors receive different benefits depending on funding level and a plaque next to the entryway to their funded space.
- Seat Licenses
Storefront's theatre chairs allow for flexible arrangements in our performance space. We offer seat licenses to sponsors at $1,000 a chair. Our seat licenses are custom built fabric overlays with the sponsors preferred credit embroidered on the front. The overlay is permanent.
- Show/Exhibition Sponsorships
Sponsoring a Storefront production or gallery exhibition is a great way to help us support our artists. Storefront productions typically cost between 10-12k. Production sponsors will receive credit onsite during the production/exhibition run. Individuals or organizations donating more than $3,000 will receive a sponsor night with the house reserved for their families, friends and colleagues.
