Kurtheater Baden

A concept for two million francs

Category: Other references

With around 600 seats, the Kurthe­ater Baden is the largest the­atre in the can­ton of Aar­gau. It was built in 1952 accord­ing to the plans of archi­tect Lis­beth Sachs, but has nev­er been com­plete­ly ren­o­vat­ed since then. A com­pre­hen­sive ren­o­va­tion with a slight expan­sion between 2018 and 2020 ensures that the Kurthe­ater will be able to serve in its role as a venue for first-class the­atre pro­duc­tions, attrac­tive for-hire guest per­for­mances and high-qual­i­ty enter­tain­ment out­side the realm of the­atre for decades to come.

Pub­lic author­i­ties, var­i­ous organ­i­sa­tions and pri­vate indi­vid­u­als are con­tribut­ing to the total costs of the forth­com­ing ren­o­va­tion and expan­sion project. As the own­er of the Kurthe­ater, The­ater­s­tiftung Region Baden-Wet­tin­gen is respon­si­ble for its oper­a­tion, main­te­nance and admin­is­tra­tion. The The­ater­s­tiftung has com­mit­ted itself to inde­pen­dent­ly con­tribut­ing two mil­lion francs to the Kurthe­ater’s ren­o­va­tion costs until it reopens in Jan­u­ary 2020. The The­ater­s­tiftung com­mis­sioned cometris to devel­op a fundrais­ing con­cept that will serve as the basis for the dri­ve to col­lect the two mil­lion Swiss francs.

cometris devel­oped a dual strat­e­gy con­cept. On the one hand, it pro­vides instruc­tions for approach­ing foun­da­tions, com­pa­nies and sol­vent pri­vate donors. On the oth­er hand, it con­tains mea­sures to also pro­mote an ide­al lev­el of sup­port among the gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion. The core of the con­cept was formed by the matrix with spon­sor­ing cat­e­gories and com­pen­sat­ing mea­sures as well as the imple­men­ta­tion plan with a cost cal­cu­la­tion. A detailed con­trol­ling sheet and an exten­sive list of pos­si­ble spon­sors round out the ser­vice package.
