Get Closer to the Action!

If you believe in the power of theatre, please invest in the quality of our shows by joining the Friends of Ford’s Theatre.

Did you know that tickets sales cover less than half of our budget? Ford’s Theatre Society is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with the National Park Service, and we depend on the generosity of people like you to bring entertaining plays and musicals to the Ford’s stage each year.

We have a great season planned for 2014-2015, and members can purchase tickets in a tiered pre-sale period two weeks before tickets go on sale to the public.

In addition, members 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 the gift shops

Please call the Membership Hotline at (202) 434-9545 or email us with any questions.

The pre-sale period for John T. Ford Society and Star members will begin on August 4. Lead members will begin August 5. Player members will begin August 7. Ensemble members will begin August 11. Tickets go on sale to the public August 18.
