Corporate events

Hosting an event at Berkeley Rep has become an important part of client cultivation and employee recognition strategies by some of the Bay Area’s top firms. Many of Berkeley Rep’s corporate sponsorship packages include discounted or free rental of Berkeley Rep’s event spaces, along with performance tickets. Companies that have recently hosted their clients or employees at Berkeley Rep include American Express, Mechanics Bank, Peet’s Coffee, and Wells Fargo.

Volunteer opportunities

Corporate partners are offered a team-building opportunity for up to 14 employees. Your company’s staff may serve as volunteer ushers for a student matinee performance, where many students will be seeing a professional theatre production for the first time. Corporate volunteers are welcome to wear their company’s branded gear during their ushering service and are invited to watch the show afterward in complimentary seats.

Employee benefits

The employees of Berkeley Rep’s corporate partners enjoy a number of benefits at the Theatre, including:

Ticket discounts

Employees of partner organizations receive 20% off full-priced tickets for any performance in the seven-play subscription season, and employees under 30 years of age receive 50% off full-priced tickets (restrictions may apply).

Special ticket offers

School of Theatre discounts

Corporate Council

The Corporate Council is a group of business leaders—including Berkeley Rep Trustees and other senior managers and executives from top financial services companies, law firms, retailers, and consultancies—who help to strengthen Berkeley Rep’s relationships in the Bay Area business community by advocating the Theatre’s value as a key community and cultural resource. Council members work to sustain artistic excellence at Berkeley Rep by engaging the Bay Area business community as corporate partners, individual donors, audience members, and key community partners. At the same time, Council members gain access to valuable networking opportunities and exclusive behind-the-scenes events.

For a full list of current members or to learn more about Corporate Council membership, please call Daria Hepps, Associate Director of Development, at 510 647–2904 or email dhepps@berkeleyrep.org.
