How Much Does Membership Cost?

Membership dues are $20 a year. This entitles you to a $20 discount on the purchase of a season ticket, and all of the activities and awards mentioned above, while offering you the opportunity to give back to your community in a very fun and enjoyable way.

I have 200 points, now what?

You are now a Lifetime Member! The Membership Chair will award you a Lifetime Member Card and Pin at the Awards Banquet in July, and your name will be added to the Lifetime Member list on the website. You do not have to pay your $20 dues anymore, but you will continue to receive a $20 discount on a season ticket purchase. You also have a great sense of accomplishment in knowing that you have completed a goal, and can continue to work with this theatre and encourage others to do the same.
