NWC Theatre Patrons seek new members

The Northwestern College Theatre Patrons’ annual membership drive is under way. The organization is seeking membership donations by Sept. 8 to support the college’s theatre program and students.

Membership rates for the 2014–15 theatre season are $65 for an “Actor” membership, and $125 for “Actor +1” (two memberships). Patrons can also join at the “Director” ($250) or “Producer” ($500) levels.

All Theatre Patrons are recognized in show programs and receive three “Actor” or six “Actor + 1” pre-paid tickets for the season’s shows. “Producer” members receive 18 season tickets, and “Director” patrons receive 12 pre-paid tickets. Patrons will be notified prior to each ticketed show so they can call the box office to reserve their preferred seating. Patrons are also invited to a dinner-and-theatre banquet during the season.

This year’s theatre season opens Oct. 24 with children’s show “Tales of the Kingdom,” a coming-of-age story set in an enchanted city. Other theatre productions in 2014–15 include “The Power and the Glory,” adapted from the Graham Greene novel, and American classic “You Can’t Take it With You.”

In addition, the season will include the RUSH student dance concert, one-acts presented by students in directing class, the 20th annual World Premiere Festival, and several student-initiated projects. Details are available at www.nwciowa.edu/nwctheatre.
