Have you ever wondered about becoming a Member at the Shaw Festival? We are thrilled to launch our new Membership Services Desk, located on the left side of the Festival Theatre lobby (beside the grand piano). The desk is staffed by the Membership Services team, who will be on hand pre-show to answer any questions you may have about Membership, how to process your Membership donation, or just chat about our mutual passion for The Shaw! You can also check out our interactive Membership display, where you can watch videos about Membership at The Shaw.

During intermission the desk will not be staffed, but if you have any questions about Membership that you would like answered, please visit the Membership team on the Members Terrace at that time or call 1-800-657-1106 ext 2389.

We look forward to meeting you!
