We are grateful for your willingness to support artistic excellence in the Germantown community and we invite you to COME PLAY!

What are your options?



Our PLAYBILL is the in-theatre publication of Germantown Community Theatre—the most complete resource for audience members to learn about the productions they are watching and the business and community leaders who have stepped forward to help support entertaining and enlightening theatre in the area. Included in the Playbill is information about our productions (casts, crews, biographies), trivia about the play and its playwright, and attractive and informative advertisements and articles about our volunteers, staff and YOU—our sponsor or advertiser!

Our patrons read the Playbill in the theatre before the show, at intermission, after the show, and later—at home—when they want to remember the name of an actor or locate a coupon or phone number for a local business. Many audience members collect their Playbills!
