Club Memberships at the Tavern
A Membership Program for those true fans of the New American Shakespeare Tavern
When you join the Shakespeare Tavern Club Program, it’s almost like joining the family! With your Club Membership, you will be entitled to a host of Program perks available only to YOU, such as:
- One Club Membership ticket voucher per month, given to you at a price deeply discounted from the individual-sale cost
- Your membership can be redeemed online as soon as you receive your confirmation email.
- Double Club ticket benefits for Preview performances
- $5 off additional full-price tickets purchased by Club Members
- One-time (per season) reserved table
- Priority Status on the waiting list if a performance is sold-out
- Exclusive letters from Artistic Director each month to give YOU the “inside scoop”
- A bi-monthly production calendar and a Shakespeare Tavern magnet for your refrigerator
- A pin declaring you a "person of taste, discretion and judgment" which entitles you to free soda, coffee and tea at the drink bars!

What Happens Next
You mean after being officially declared a “person of taste, discretion, and judgment”?
You will begin receiving your communiqué from our Artistic Director within the month.
Your ticket vouchers will be mailed to your home or preferred address approximately one week prior to the beginning of each month and will be available for use immediately upon receipt. If you make a reservation using a voucher prior to the mailing (either online or via phone), the physical voucher will neither be printed nor mailed.
After having called the box office and reserved a ticket on your chosen night, please remember to bring your voucher with you so that it may be exchanged for an actual show ticket on the night you attend a performance.
You will also receive in the mail your “Person of taste, discretion, and judgment” pin which will entitle you to free coffee, tea, and soda at the bars, and other explanatory materials detailing the terms and benefits of your Club Membership.
Let the fun begin!
Please note that it will still be necessary to make ticket reservations (either by calling the box office or logging into your account on our website) when using your ticket vouchers, to ensure that a seat in your section is available for you.
As a Shakespeare Tavern Club Member, you are entitled not only to your own ticket voucher at a price greatly reduced from the individual-sale cost, but you are also entitled to purchase additional tickets at a reduced cost!
In order to purchase these additional tickets, please contact our Box Office and identify yourself as a Club Member. You will be entitled to a discount of $5 off the purchase price of any full-price* ticket at the seating level of your choice.
The (not-so-fine) Fine Print
In the event that you wish to purchase already-discounted tickets such as a student ticket, a preview-night ticket, a Thursday/Sunday night balcony ticket or any other already reduced ticket, you will be asked to choose either your Club Member discount OR the open-to-the-public discount. You may still use your Club Member discount for any full-price ticket. Please contact our box office at 404 874 5299 x 0 for questions regarding your ticket discount.
According to the IRS, your Shakespeare Club dues are not tax deductible because you receive a substantial ticket benefit as part of your membership. However, for the tax year ending December 2014, each unused ticket voucher does represent a deductible gift of: $27.50 for Main Floor Club Vouchers; $23.33 for Box Seats Club Vouchers; $20 for Balcony Club Vouchers.
For those who purchased Flex Club vouchers, for the tax year ending December 2014, each unused ticket voucher represents a deductible gift of: $31.66 for Main Floor Flex Club Vouchers; $27.50 for Box Seats Flex Club Vouchers; $24.16 for Balcony Flex Club Vouchers.
Prices and member benefits are subject to change, but we will give Club Members as much notice as possible when making these changes. Some restrictions do apply (for example, club vouchers may not be used around Valentine’s Day).
You must be current on your Club Membership dues in order to receive your vouchers.
The Last Word
We here at the New American Shakespeare Tavern know that you have the freedom to make choices with regards to both your time and your discretionary income. We are thrilled and gratified that you would choose to spend both with us in order to enjoy the warmth, friendship, and extraordinary entertainment we strive each day to provide. Please rest assured that we wish to make your Club Membership a choice that will continue to delight you!
