Being a member of the Director’s Circle makes me feel a part of the Northern Stage family. I think often about how lucky we are to have such an exceptional theater in our midst, and how empty our lives would be without it!!” – Brucie Hubbell

“In our small communities it’s not often we find arts organizations whose quality rivals that of the best theaters in the country. We have that in Northern Stage. Being Director’s Circle members lets us observe the organization up close, and provides the financial support to help them continue to produce extraordinary theater experiences.”  – Jon & Wendy Spector

Membership Makes a Difference

The Northern Stage Director’s Circle is a membership program offering arts lovers the next level of access to and engagement with the theater; benefits include behind-the scenes-access, ticketing perks, and special event invitations. Members most commonly renew each spring, investing in the next upcoming season months before rehearsals get underway. Membership benefits include:
Early subscription renewal and ticket booking: Members have the opportunity to book their tickets months in advance of the general public, offering your pick of the very best possible dates & seats.
Script Clubs: Gain insight into every production as you observe rehearsal and engage in discussion with members of the creative team.
Waived ticket exchange fees: Plans changed? No problem! Swap your tickets for any other performance of a given production with no additional fees. 
Cocktail hours: Bring a friend, enjoy a pre-show glass of wine, and get to know other director’s circle members!
Invitations and first access: Members receive advance notice of and/or exclusive invites to events and experiences throughout the year, including workshops, education classes, play readings – and of course the season preview party, revealing the lineup of productions for each coming season.

ABOUT SUBSCRIPTIONS: A Northern Stage subscription consists of one ticket to each mainstage production per season (two subscriptions maximum per Director’s Circle membership of $1500 or more). Subscriptions carry a cash value of $220 each, which must be excluded from tax reporting.  

ABOUT GUEST VOUCHERS: A guest voucher is a certificate good for one complimentary ticket. Each individual voucher carries a cash value of $20. Guest vouchers may be redeemed for tickets to any professional or education production in the 2023-24 Northern Stage Season, with the exception of our 2023 holiday season production of A Christmas Carol. We hope you will use these vouchers to introduce Northern Stage to your friends, acquaintances, and family! 

To reserve tickets using your vouchers, call the box office at (802) 296-7000. Reservations must be under the guest’s name, and vouchers must be presented to the box office to collect tickets. All seats are subject to availability, so advance reservations are strongly recommended.

ABOUT TAX-DEDUCTIBILITY: Northern Stage is a 501(c) (3) registered non-profit. A portion of most Memberships is tax-deductible as a charitable gift according to current U.S. tax law. Your acknowledgment will state the allowed gift amount. You may also choose to waive your benefits to increase your likely tax deduction. 

Due to tax regulations, donors who give through Donor Advised Funds cannot receive any Director’s Circle benefits carrying a monetary value; however, donors may choose to pay for those benefits separately to receive greater deduction.  We recommend checking with tax or financial advisor(s) to ensure proper tax documentation in all cases.
