Why Advertise Here?
“That’s my favorite show! I wish I’d know they were putting it on, I would have auditioned, or at least bought a ticket!”

Since its start in January 2010, Backstage Utah has experienced rapid growth in visitor traffic, showing an increase of up-to 20,000 visits per month. These are regular, local  visitors, who look to this site as their primary resource for all information on upcoming theatrical productions.

If you are putting on a show, your audience demographic will always include theatre enthusiasts. When you advertise on Backstage Utah, you’re advertising directly to a large portion of your audience.

Advertise My Show

An ad for your upcoming production can display in the advertising banner on the right of this screen in the “Now Playing” rotator, in addition, your ad will also display on the Now Playing Page in a wider display. The ad acts as a link and will drive traffic directly to your website or ticket page when it’s clicked. This advertising is purchased and posted on a per-production basis, and will run from the date you send it until your final performance date.



SJCT_OliverAdAll graphical advertisements should be set at 250 pixels wide and at 72 dpi.

The rotator will force the graphic to the specified width, but to save on download speed, we ask that all graphics be set at the size listed.

Since you’re likely shrinking your poster from a large print size down to 250 pixels wide, it’s recommended that you check that your design doesn’t become unreadable once it’s rendered. The example on the right shows a design that fits the parameters, but doesn’t lose either its graphical quality, nor is any of the pertinent information left unreadable.


The advertising rate to have your ad displayed in the bar at the right, as well as on the Now Playing page, is $25/production. Your ad will run for the length of your ticket sales.

Can I still post my show announcement for Free?

Yes, that’s still free and will display as a text link on the Now Playing page. However, that will be a text link listed with all the other text links for all the other shows that have also posted. Your show may be buried under other shows that aren’t opening for a few months. A graphic ad for your show, displayed on the right of every page as well as above the text links, will have more people click it. Post your show here

Advertise Your Season

Don’t like sharing the spotlight with other companies? Do you have your entire season planned out with posters ready and your dates set? Then set up a season ad. Season ads display on the right in their own rotator dedicated to your company only.

Price for a Season ad is $125 and can feature up to 9 different posters.

PLEASE NOTE: For seasonal advertisement, please send your artwork, including your company banner in a zip file. If you are unable to send it in that manner, please indicate so in your message and I will contact you with options.

How Do I Pay You?

Once you’ve sent your ad and website link, it will be posted and a PayPal invoice will be sent to you. Payments are due upon receipt.
