Membership has never meant more. Never. Our ensemble, our artists and our staff know who keeps this theatre company alive: it’s our members. Members are a vital part of the Steppenwolf family—the reason we create groundbreaking work and stunning storytelling. Simply put, without our members, there would be no work.  

As we continue to navigate a return to normalcy following COVID-19, it’s difficult to understand exactly how that might unfurl in a world that remains riddled with uncertainty.  We recognize that you also have many concerns and questions about what our return to the theater might look like. We have a plan for RISK FREE membership.

Membership today keeps Steppenwolf alive tomorrow.
