Theatrical Young Patron Groups:
If you're between 20-39 years old, that makes you young, for an arts patron. The opera, ballet, and symphony have well established groups courting these desirable youngsters (Bravo Club
, Backstage Pass, and Wolfgang Group). Given their success, Seattle theaters are duplicating the recipe. Besides the bonus fun, these groups provide a way to see great theater too.
Membership Club at ACT Theater
: Since this is a new group, it's still in the planning stages, launching for the new season. There's no cost yet, being in the free trial period. This means if you join, expect a new club undergoing development, one that's hungry for your feedback and participation. Upcoming planned parties include a beer tasting, "pink-a-boo!", and a "marvelous" party for the main stage performance, as well as the usual lot of pre and post performance get-togethers. Some day, you get the
bragging rights of being "a charter member".
Avenue New Club, for fans of 5th Avenue Theater
. This club is just coming together, maturing from an informal get-together, to an organized club. They're planning 5-7 events for the next season. Most of the activities are pre or post show get-togethers at nearby restaurants, offering a chance to talk with members of the creative team and gaining a first-person account of what goes into constructing a musical. Since this group is new, there's no cost to join (yet), which is amazing, since they offer great
discounts (subscriber discounts, pre-sale offers) for members. This upcoming season, they're planning to put together a couple social activities outside of show events as well.
Seattle Rep Theater
: As far as theater groups go, this is Seattle's oldest group of young professionals, with over 200 members. These folks have the best behind-the-scenes tours, so you get to see the scene shop and how the costumes are put together. Then, there's the usual membership benefits, of social events, food and drinks before the show, crew parties, and ticket discounts.
