Advertising Opportunities

The Marquee is the official Broadway program of The Orpheum Theatre. Printed on high-quality 80lb gloss text paper, it is handed out to every patron at each Broadway show presented at the Theatre. During a single show week, The Marquee is seen by nearly 16,000—that adds up to over 160,000 viewers per year!

The program contains information on the cast, acts and musical numbers as well as other information on upcoming theatre special events and activities.

Advertising in The Marquee places your business and message before an upscale, mobile group that supports The Orpheum and our advertisers.

The Typical Orpheum Theatre Broadway patron:

  • Is 35-64 years old
  • Has a household income of over $100,000 a year
  • Has a college degree

“With the number of advertising options available today, effective media selection can be very confusing. Having been a Marquee advertiser for several years, we have found this medium to be extremely effective in targeting our demographic and creating the image we want through this high-quality publication.”
--Philip Gould, President, Gould's Day Spa & Salon, Inc.
