Become A Member

“Bard belongs to all of us. I invite you to become a Member and join me as we carry this
wonderful Festival into the future.” Christopher Gaze, Artistic Director

The proposed activities below were a part of our digital 2021 Season. Stay tuned for an announcement of our 2022 member events and benefits coming soon.

Bard Members support much more than the performances seen on our stages, and allow us to inspire thousands of people through our innovative education programs and affordable performances. Each year, support from Membership helps us stage over 200 performances and events welcoming over 100,000 patrons, employ over 250 actors, designers, directors, technicians and administrative staff, inspire over 18,000 students through our education programs. As a Bard Member, your impact will help us continue our mission to create transformational experiences through exceptional theatre, training, and education opportunities that inspire, resonate, and promote the exchange of ideas.

Membership starts at just $50, with increasing benefits at higher levels.
