By supporting Near West Theatre as a playbill advertiser, you provide children, teens and adults opportunities to contribute to the community in productive and constructive ways.
Near West’s playbill goes home with audience and cast members from the inner city and beyond. It reaches over 20,000 arts lovers annually who come to our new state of the art facility. The largest concentrations of people who frequent the theatre are from zip codes 44113, 44109, 44111, 44107 and 44102. According to our surveys, they shop and dine at area establishments on a regular basis.
