Sponsors, Warm Wishes, And Business Ads

Have a Business? Your Ad Supports Theater In Our Community

We have an important opportunity for your business to support the arts in the Forest Hills community by advertising in the Playbill of The Garden Players’ family musical as well as being added to our sponsors page. Our original musical will premiere with two shows on May 11th and two on May 12th,  2024, at The Community House of The Church-in-the-Gardens in Forest Hills.  Our annual productions involve over 120 neighborhood children, their extended families, friends and neighbors with over 600 seats filled.

Arts education helps our children and our community thrive, and your support means a lot to the parents, children and audience members of our musical theater troupe. I started carrying the torch for Garden Players in 2003, a local theater group which has been around for over 100 years, and I am proud of our vibrant and creative community.

Our first in person show after the pandemic was a huge success due to our sponsors, local community, and volunteers. We had 4 packed performances. As the director and co-writer of the show and member of the BMI Musical Theater Writing Workshop,  I am excited to be working with composer Sunny Knable to bring fresh musical theater to our community.

Our annual productions have sold out each year to a local audience of over 600 people.  As a local business, you have an opportunity to support the arts in our community by advertising in our Playbill.
