Nutcracker Ads 2018.jpg

Here are some examples of last year's program ads:

City Ballet is pleased to offer all families and businesses the opportunity of placing a business ad or personal piece of artwork with a special shout-out to your dancer. This will appear in programs for all three performances of our very popular Nutcracker at the Palace of Fine Arts.  As long as your artwork meets the specs (see below), you may be as creative as you like with photos and special messages. Best of all, every ad helps support the City Ballet Foundation with its support of the school, performances, and community outreach.
