Benefits of Membership

Your membership during the COVID-19-related closure

All PlayHouse memberships were automatically “frozen” from March 15-October 1, 2020 -- for the first 200 days of our closure. As of October 1, we ask each family to let us know what they would like to do with their membership: keep it frozen, donate it to ensure future financial health of the PlayHouse, or turn their remaining membership time into a PlayHouse Everywhere membership. If you are a member and have not yet let us know what you would like done with your membership, please use this form to do so.

Please note, "regular" PlayHouse memberships are not available for purchase at this time. If you would like to support the PlayHouse at this time, we encourage you to either purchase a PlayHouse Everywhere membership or make a donation. Thank you for your support!
