New Year, New Membership 

Join us for our 2021-22 Season!
BY BEING A DIRECTOR’S CIRCLE MEMBER and attending insider events, I have become a part of creating a play. My experience in the theater is deepened by understanding what it takes to create a show from the writing, to design choices, to direction and acting, to the stage.”
– Bill Williams, Director’s Circle Member

Membership Means More

Our Director’s Circle is a group of donors who make an annual gift of $500 or more to Northern Stage. This family of supporters makes our long-term vitality and ability to positively impact the community possible. Ticket sales and subscriptions cover approximately 45% of what it takes for Northern Stage to maintain its crucial impact on our shared community – culturally, socially, and economically. The price of a ticket covers less than half of your theater experience, and donations of every size are necessary to keep your theater thriving.
Northern Stage has become a fixture of theatrical excellence in the region – our main stage season brings world-class theater right to the heart of the Upper Valley. But donor support does so much more. DC members help provide theater education opportunities that nurture theater lovers of all ages and make need based scholarships available, so our programs are accessible to all. Member contributions make it possible for us to develop plays, ensuring fresh voices are nurtured and new work is brought to the American stage. Member support deepens our connection to our shared community through engagement programs that draw audience members into a meaningful understanding of theater and the stories we tell. Donations help make theater accessible to all through low-cost ticketing programs.
In short, Director’s Circle members are changing lives, one story at a time.
*PLEASE NOTE: By clicking the button below, you will be re-directed to an online donation form. Currently, this form is available for one-time donations only. If you are interested in creating a monthly or quarterly payment plan for your membership, or setting up a sustaining membership in the Director’s Circle, or for more information, please contact Ruth Ann Pattee at rpattee@northernstage.org or 802-296-7000 ext. 123.

SUBSCRIPTIONS consist of one ticket to each main stage production per season. Two Subscriptions maximum per DC membership of $1200 or more.

NORTHERN STAGE CLUB CARD– A new benefits package consisting of various discounts to local businesses in the Upper Valley. Present your Northern Stage Club Card to any of the participating businesses and enjoy offers only available to you as a Northern Stage Director’s Circle Member.

GUEST VOUCHERS– Above and beyond Subscriptions, Guest Vouchers are certificates good for one complimentary ticket. We hope you will use these vouchers to introduce Northern Stage to your community – your friends, acquaintances, and strangers! Vouchers do not guarantee tickets. All seats are subject to availability, so we recommend advance reservations. To reserve tickets using your vouchers, call the box office at (802) 296-7000 and reference the unique number on the back of each voucher. Reservations must be under the guest’s name, and vouchers must be presented to the box office to collect tickets. Guest Vouchers are not considered goods received and as such do not reduce the value of your contribution. Unneeded DC Guest Vouchers can be returned, which allows Northern Stage to offer free tickets to local nonprofits.
