A MEMBERSHIP PLAN FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES
Being a member means more than ever. As excited as we are to welcome you back to the theatre, that will not happen until the health and safety of our artists and our audiences are assured. We recognize that you may also have concerns and questions about what our return to the theatre might look like. We have a plan.
OUR RISK FREE MEMBERSHIP GUARANTEE
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 and abundance of caution for the health of our artists and audience demand otherwise, we will find comparable seats and dates to the best of our ability and communicate any changes with you in a timely manner.
What is Steppenwolf’s view on virtual content?
Steppenwolf NOW, our new virtual programming stream, is our commitment to creating and programming distinctive, groundbreaking virtual content to connect in new ways with our audience. Steppenwolf NOW is included FREE in all membership packages.
I don’t see play dates listed in any of your materials—where can I find those?
In order to stay flexible as we follow recommended guidelines from local government and health officials, we are not solidifying play run dates at this time. We will announce performance dates when we are closer to returning to stage.
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 summer of 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
