You Bring Ford’s Theatre to Life!

Secure your Favorite Seats—Join by August 3!

We hope to see you at Ford’s Theatre this season for fresh new work and adored classics on our historic stage.

Tickets go on sale to members two weeks before the public, and the pre-sale is your best chance to reserve your favorite seats. The tiered dates are:

  • John T. Ford Society ($1,000) and Star ($500) members: Start August 3, 2015
  • Lead ($250) members: Start August 4, 2015
  • Player ($100) members: Start August 6, 2015
  • Ensemble ($50) members: Start August 10, 2015
  • The public: Start August 17, 2015

But the pre-sale is not the only advantage of being a member. Join now and you will also receive:

  • Personal Service: Dedicated Membership Hotline for purchasing tickets
  • Flexibility: Easy ticket exchanges if your plans change
  • Savings: Waived transaction fees on ticket orders and discounts in our gift shops
  • Insider Access: Invitations to special events
  • And more! Click here for the full benefits

Ford’s Theatre is a historic landmark that hosts world-class performances examining the American experience.

But, did you know that ticket sales cover less than half of our budget? Ford’s Theatre Society is the non-profit organization that produces all of the plays and musicals on the Ford’s stage, and we need your help to bring great shows to life.

For more information, please call the Membership Hotline at (202) 434-9545 or email us with any questions.
