Oakland's Broadway in the Redwoods Since 1967

Many Thanks to our Sponsors!

Producing any kind of live theater is expensive, and producing live musical theater is very expensive.


The costs of royalties and rentals, salaries and stipends, sets, costumes, props, lighting, programs and brochures, advertising, and Internet seem to get higher every year. We want Woodminster to continue to be an affordable family outing, and we have been able to keep ticket prices stable because of our many individual donors, along with corporations, foundations, and other organizations. Here, you will see the organizations that are  supporting Woodminster Summer Musicals in 2018. We hope you will patronize them, and tell them how much you appreciate their support of Oakland's Broadway in the Redwoods!


Producers Associates is a non-profit organization and donations are fully tax deductible. (Tax ID #94-1688232)



  • Program Advertisers 2019-2020

    We are very grateful to the following sponsors (listed in alphabetical order) that are supporting Woodminster Summer Musicals by purchasing advertising in our show programs in 2019.  Please let them know you heard about their generous support of Woodminster!


  • Kids Come Free Sponsors

    Since 1989, Woodminster Summer Musicals has offered free tickets to children and teens 16 and younger who are accompanying paying adults to any performance.  Many of us found our love of live theater as children, and we want to offer the same experience to future generations.  We want live theater to be affordable for all the families in our community who want to attend, and we are very grateful to the generous donors who make this valuable program possible.

  • Drawing Prize Donations

    One of our important fundraising traditions is our intermission prize draws.  Before each performance, board members and volunteers sell drawing tickets to picnickers and arriving audience, and during intermission, we draw numbers and lucky audience members win prizes donated by local businesses.

We attract business and community leaders, families with kids, professional organizations, church groups, etc.


    The paper programs we distribute free at our shows are in glossy booklet format, with large 8.5x11" size pages. They include many elements -- such as actor bios and lots of color photos -- that make them collectors’ items, and many of them get taken home and looked at again and again. They also get very high readership at the performances, before the shows and during intermission.
