Membership

Since its inception, Circle Players has built its organization around a strong, thriving membership.

In an effort to rebuild that membership, Circle introduces its new Membership Points System, a structure by which anyone can participate in the Circle membership for only a nominal fee, and those interested in doing more for the organization can be rewarded proportionately for their efforts. A basic ‘Friend’ membership can be obtained for nothing more than a $35 annual fee, while greater rewards at the ‘Supporter’, ‘Patron’, and ‘Angel’ levels can be obtained by earning ‘Circle Points’ on top of the basic membership fee.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • A current membership with Circle Players will be valid until June 30, 2017, covering both the remainder of the 2015-2016 season and our 2016-2017 65th anniversary season in their entirety.
  • Points earned beginning July 1, 2015 will count toward member totals.
