Unlike some organizations who describe their donors as “members,” The Stage Company has always worked to keep those categories separate. Donors are those who help our company financially succeed and are usually faithful audience members. Members, on the other hand, are those who want to participate in our production activities – not just as actors—but also as part of the production staff. There are perks to being a member which include two free tickets to a production in which a member is working, special discounts on workshop fees and/or other productions (such as readers’ theater), invitation to our two social events of the year (our annual picnic in May and our mid-winter holiday party) and our annual Appreciation Gala held to honor our donors.

The fee structure is:

Family membership — $35

Individual membership — $20

Student membership — $10

The Stage Company expects all those who appear on our stage or on our production staffs to become members. This is an important source of income which allows The Stage Company to succeed. And note, if becoming a member is a financial burden, please see President Susan McLernon or Vice President for Operations Tricia Burns for possible scholarship assistance. If you know of someone who is not currently a donor, but you think might be a good prospect, please forward their name to Susan at
