Playbill Cover

Bas Bleu playbills are offered to every patron attending a Main Stage show. (We also have playbills for Readers’ Theatre and other Special Events, but those are different ad rates). They are printed to a finished page size 5 ½” x 8 ½”, saddle staple binding and are color on matte stock. Page number may vary but is expected to be a maximum of 40 including the cover.

Bas Bleu playbills (and therefore your ad) are seen by an average of 1200 patrons per show. Our patrons tend to be more mature, affluent consumers. Our ticket price for a Main Stage production is $26, so it is a consumer with discretionary funds.
