Lights, camera…audience! The auditions, the rehearsals, and the set construction have all taken place, and now it’s time for the last step: spreading the word about your performance. This is the perfect time for theater flyers to take center stage.
If you want to learn more about theatre flyers, keep reading! We’ll explain what you need to know and give some examples of effective theater flyers that encourage people to show up on opening night.
Everyone in your production has worked hard to make a great show, and inviting as many attendees as possible makes everyone’s efforts worth it. Flyers are easy to hand out, post on walls, and mail home.
Great theater flyers attract eyes and get people excited about attending the show. They act as a preview: what sort of show will take place? What can the audience expect? Your theater flyers give a sense of what the show will be like.
Flyers are also great keepsakes after a show. Cast members can hang them on their walls, put them in scrapbooks, and even sign them for adoring fans.
As you’re designing and printing your theater flyers, take these ideas into account.
Flyers are supposed to grab people’s attention and get them excited about your show. Therefore, use your inner drama queen when you create your flyer design. Bright colors and bold text are your friends! If your flyers get people thinking about the show, you’ve succeeded. Printing in color helps your flyers attract the attention they deserve.
You can distribute flyers in a few ways: post them on walls, hand them out at events, leave them in local businesses and organizations, and more. Different sizes work best in these different situations. For example, smaller flyers (such as 5.5x8.5) are easier to hand out, whereas larger flyers (such as 12x18) are easy to read when posted on walls.
Have you ever printed a large number of copies of a document, only to realize that the design wasn’t quite right? Luckily, working with a professional printing company can help you avoid this issue. One of the advantages of working with a professional printing company is that we can make sure your design will look great, fix your design if you’d like, and send you a proof so you know exactly what the finished product will look like. No more unwelcome surprises!
Here are some theater flyers that make a great impression.
This flyer uses design to illustrate the play’s themes in a creative way. Even without using color, the flyer conveys the emotions and main ideas behind the show, and it gets potential audience members excited about attending the performance.
Flyers don’t only advertise performances; they also help new actors find your group. Whether you’re looking for new cast members within your school community, city, or even an entire region, well-designed flyers can help new talent find your organization. This flyer is double-sided, which provides even more space for the organization to include details about the event. As well, the bright colors grab attention.
This theater flyer provides a glimpse into the content of the show, both through the photograph and the description that it’s a parody of Romeo and Juliet. Using a range of blue colors throughout the design sets the stage–pun intended–for the coming performance.
