RENEW TODAY TO RESTORE TOMORROW WitH RISK FREE MEMBERSHIP
A MEMBERSHIP PLAN FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES
As the country, Illinois and our precious Chicagoland 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 have a plan.
We are going to respect Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot and all social distancing ordinances with an abundance of caution to protect our artists and our audiences. As excited as we are to welcome you back to the theatre, that will not happen until the health & safety of our artists and our audiences are assured. We recognize that you also have many concerns and questions about what our return to the theatre might look like—and that committing to a 20/21 membership might cause you more pause than you would wish.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to renew today to restore tomorrow with a risk free membership guarantee.
RISK FREE MEMBERSHIP
If COVID-19 circumstances impede our 20/21 season by either NOT allowing us to perform or by making YOU feel uncomfortable returning to the theatre, we will be prepared to offer you 3 alternatives:
- Call Audience Services for a refund of your ticket value
- Put your membership dollars on account to be used for a future Steppenwolf production
- Donate your ticket value in your continued investment in Steppenwolf's future
What happens if social distancing ordinances impact my seats or dates?
Our greatest hope is that we welcome you back as you last visited us! However, if social distancing ordinances or the general care & abundance of caution for the health of our artists and audience demand otherwise, we will find comparable seats & dates to the best of our ability and communicate any changes with you in a timely manner.
I love Steppenwolf – but my life is a little uncertain right now. May I have a bit more time to consider renewing?
We are extending our renewal deadline to JULY 15 hoping the world and all of us have a bit more sense of the future and our place in it!
What is the Steppenwolf view on virtual content?
Steppenwolf remains committed to creating new and exciting virtual events that trigger meaning and contribute to our community’s connectedness and curiosity. As we program for a future we cannot see, we are excited to fill our season with an adventurous and bold slate of ensemble-driven virtual offerings, all steeped in the Steppenwolf ethos of innovation, irreverence and excellence. These projects will include new plays and audio experiences commissioned for the virtual platform, interviews with ensemble members, behind-the-scenes access to playmaking, book clubs with our playwrights and much more.
Is the building still on track to open Seagull?
YES! Seagull is absolutely going to open the new theatre. The schedule has been pushed to Fall of 2021, and member seat assignments will be anticipated in June 2021.
How will the theatergoing experience change?
Our priority has always been to create a safe, inviting and relaxed environment for everyone who comes through our doors. We are working with experts to determine what modifications will keep our spaces safe for audiences. We’re taking our time to craft a thoughtful plan for safety, and you’ll be the first to know what steps we’re taking!
"THEATRE HAS ALWAYS REMINDED US OF OUR INTRINSIC ONENESS, OUR EVER-PRESENT HUMANITY. STEPPENWOLF WILL USE THIS MOMENT TO CONTINUE TO FIND WAYS TO BRING US TOGETHER, CLOSER, FROM WHEREVER WE ARE."
- STEPPENWOLF ARTISTIC DIRECTOR ANNA D. SHAPIRO
