Be a Panto Champion!
Sponsor the East Van Panto

By sponsoring the East Van Panto, you help bring .joy to countless families over the holidays.

As a Panto Champion, you’re not just introducing your brand to our unique audience, you’re contributing to what makes East Vancouver such a vibrant place to live, work, and play. This year the East Van Panto will be delivered entirely online, so you’ll have the unique opportunity to connect with patrons in the comfort of their living rooms. 

With our holiday family favourite The East Van Panto, innovative work by local artists, and acclaimed shows from across Canada and around the world, The Cultch holds a unique position in Vancouver’s theatre scene, and a special place in the hearts of our community members.

We are proud to have relationships with many organisations, from local businesses, to large national corporations. By partnering with us, you will reach our unique community in East Vancouver, build relationships with our incredible artists, and help us create a platform for marginalized voices, sharing stories that wouldn’t otherwise be heard.

We’d love to have you in our Cultch family! To learn more about becoming a sponsor, contact Louise Chapman Development Manager louise@thecultch.com
