Become A Sponsor At The Sunrise Theatre

The Sunrise Theatre for The Performing Arts is an important social, economic, cultural and educational resource. And with an overall economic impact of $12 million dollars, for every $1 dollar spent, The Sunrise Theatre is a solid foundation for a positive, healthy downtown Fort Pierce. The Sunrise Theatre generates millions of dollars in annual revenue, and provides an economic catalyst on the local, county and state levels. These economic impacts are felt by restaurants, hotels and retailers who benefit from traffic generated by our arts programming, educational and outreach offerings, summer camps and non-profit benefits.

Approaching our 17th Season, we have seen continued growth and development every year in terms of attendance, ticket sales, memberships, number and diversity of programs offered, but especially the breadth and depth of where our patrons and visitors are coming from. In addition to the continued support and recognition within St. Lucie County, the most impressive number is the growth and support from Indian River and Martin Counties each year. Last year, over 53% of our total ticket sales came from the counties north and south of our beautiful, historic downtown Fort Pierce location with many others coming from counties even further away.
