“Should I be a member or a donor?”
We’ve gotten this question for years. For 2018, we’ve made it simple.
SVS introduces the Donors Circle! One straightforward way to support SVS, while still receiving many great benefits from SVS in appreciation for your support.
If you’ve been an SVS member, please look at the Donors Circle. It will look familiar. But it’s even better!
If you’ve been a member and also donated, your donations didn’t go toward your member level. Now, everything you give to support SVS goes to the same total.
Even better: the Donors Circle year starts November 1st, so your holiday donation in 2017 counts toward your Donors Circle level for the 2018 season!
All this still has the same goal: Support SVS and its outreach initiatives – free theatre for youth, free Shakespeare in Willow Street Park, and our education programs.
The Royal Court – The Ultimate SVS Experience
Royal Court level donors receive the most exclusive SVS experience!
Enjoy a Sanborn Park production, or two, from our extra-comfortable lounge seating in our private royal seating area! You’ll also get an usher dedicated exclusively to royal seating – both pre-show and during intermission.
We want every experience with SVS to be special. The Royal Court is the most special experience of all.
How does royal seating work?
To keep this benefit fully tax-deductible, royal seating for Royal Court donors is an automatic upgrade. For the price of one regular (member-discounted) ticket, Royal Court donors get that ticket automatically upgraded to royal seating! (Applies to the number of seats per production at your donor level.)
Royal Court donors can reserve royal seating for their preferred performance dates, before they’re available to the public. In the spring, Royal reservations open weekly, by donor level, before they’re available to the public:
- Week One: Lord donors.
- Week Two: Count donors.
- Week Three: Viscount donors.
Anyone can reserve after their designated week, subject to availability.
The exact reservation schedule will be directly communicated to Royal Court donors.
