Empress Theatre Products Available

Do you like the artwork we've used for Empress Theatre shows? Would you like to take some home with you? Well, now you can!

For Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, we ordered a bunch of t-shirts with the plan that we'd sell them to patrons that wanted them, and sell whatever was left over to the stage crew. Turns out that there weren't any leftover, and now I have a couple of crew members ticked off at me, so...

We've hooked up with a company called Cafe Press to create "print on demand" items from t-shirts to coffee mugs with Empress Theatre poster art. We've got t-shirts and mugs with Heather Atkinson's design for The Foreigner available now, with more products coming in the future. Prices range from about $13.00. If there is a specific product you'd like to see offered, please let us know.

This is a great way to support the Empress Theatre, and it's also a great way to support the artists that design our posters and other art. Our poster artists donate their work for use in our marketing materials, and spend many hours working on on them for free. For each item sold through CafePress, the artist will receive a small royalty for the use of his or her artwork, and the Empress will receive a little to support operations and future productions.
