  2. Invitation to speak at opening night or a Saturday evening performance.
  3. Recognition in the program.
  4. Recognition on the IRT website.
  5. Recognition on other social media publicity.
  6. Recognition at opening night celebration if agreed to by director and actors in the play.

We have developed a four-tiered Patronage program
for the increased production schedule of IRT.

Banshee  ($250)  is a spirit in the form of a wailing woman. This term came to English from the Old Irish term ben side meaning “woman of the fairy mound.” Irish legend says only families of high rank and pure Irish blood would hear the shrill howl of the banshee.

Cluricaun ($500) is an Irish elf, or perhaps a fairy, in the form of a tiny old man. He exists in a state of perpetual drunkenness and loves to play practical jokes. W. B. Yeats writes: “Some suppose he is merely the Leprechaun on a spree.”

Fear Gorta ($750) This supernatural being roams the earth in the form of an emaciated man during times of famine. He begs for food, and gives good fortune to those who help him.

Leprechaun ($1000+) This sprite of Irish folklore is one of the world’s most recognized mythical creatures. You might think of him as a quaint little man who will reveal the location of gold to anyone who catches him.

Benefits of Patronage

Banshee: 2 tickets to each show of the season, listed in the program for each show of the season, listed on the web page for the season.

Cluricaun: 4 tickets for each show of the season and the other benefits for the $250 level

Fear Gorta 4 tickets for each show of the season, the other benefits for the proceeding two levels, dinner after a performance of the show of your choice with the director of the show and/or an actor of your choice if available, depending on scheduling.

Leprechaun: 6 tickets for each show of the season and the other benefits the same as all the proceeding levels.
