Membership is the foundation of all that Tibbits does. Ticket sales generally cover the cost of events, but rarely cover the costs of maintaining the opera house. Take a look at all the benefits your membership provides the theatre AND you!


Your Individual Membership…

Helps maintain a vital piece of history. Memories have been a part of Tibbits since it was built in 1882 by Barton S. Tibbits. It is one of only a handful of theatres from that era still operating in the United States, and thousands visit this beautiful Victorian treasure every year.

Sustains the daily operations of the theatre. Tibbits depends on the generosity of its members to meet daily operational expenses. Donations supplement ticket sales and make it possible to keep ticket prices low.

Enhances children’s programming and encourages each child to experience and appreciate arts and culture. Tibbits’ goal is to offer programs that excite, educate and stimulate our youth.

Nourishes the hopes and dreams of aspiring actors, musicians, dancers and artists who appear on the Tibbits stage or display their talents in the gallery. It is home to school productions, Arts Alive, community theatre, community band, area dance studios and other local organizations.
