As a high school teacher, our drama program has to survive on ticket sales and program ads.  I've never had much luck with fundraising--we usually lose money or work for 10 hours to earn 50 bucks.  I would rather work a second job for $20 an hour and donate it than waste my time with "fundraising." 
We usually have a set fee to participate in the program, as it is considered an after-school class--just like a karate class or music class.  To avoid paying the fee, the students may "fund-raise" by selling a set number of tickets to offset the cost of the fee.  Most students like the opportunity to sell tickets to pay for the expenses instead of trying to sell candy bars or wash cars.  Selling tickets fills the seats and helps people to see that we aren't the "average high school theatre program."
We tried selling ads in the program, but it just didn't work.  We got three ads for $30 bucks, and it really wasn't worth the effort.  I might try the "break-a-legs" in the future, though.
