Join the Guild

The Guild was founded in 1994 to support the Texas Shakespeare Festival. Anyone interested in the promotion, support, and well-being of the Texas Shakespeare Festival is invited to become a Member of the Guild.  As the volunteer arm of the Texas Shakespeare Festival Foundation, Guild Members join annually from far and near.  Members’ dues provide meals, purchase Festival wish list items and sponsor events for the Company Artists while they are in residence.  In addition, members may volunteer as auditorium greeters, host company members and participate with the Lunch Bunch.

As a Member of the Guild, you receive three Guild newsletters per year, via e-mail or mail.  You are invited to special Festival and Guild events.  You are also invited to purchase tickets online for the Festival summer season before they are available to the public, insuring your preferred seating.

Membership Year: September 1st-August 31st annually for both renewing and first time members. 

Please Join!  Your Membership is invaluable to the success of the Festival.

There are four levels of Membership:

  1. Active Individual Membership - Annual Dues at $20 per person
    Active Individual Membership comes with the opportunity and responsibility to participate in volunteer activities for the Guild and/or the Texas Shakespeare Festival. Active Individual Members are requested to purchase Season Ticket Subscriptions each year and have the right to vote at Guild meetings and to hold office in the Guild.    
  2. Associate Individual Membership - Annual Dues at $30 per person

    Associate Individual Membership has a little higher price that allows Associate Individual Members to support and participate in the Guild without having to assume volunteer tasks.  Associate Individual Members are encouraged to purchase tickets to at least two or more of the performances per season and may participate in volunteer activities.​ 

  3. Family Membership - Annual Dues at  $75 per year - limited to 6 members at the same address
    Family Membership allows families to join and support the Guild. Family membership comes with all the opportunities and responsibilities of an Associate Individual Membership as outlined above. Families are encouraged to participate in volunteer activities.
