Organizational Membership is open to any producing theatre organization worldwide that is primarily involved with the production of Shakespeare's plays. STA membership now includes over 120 theatres, representing diverse types (indoor, outdoor, year-round, seasonal, university-affiliated, free) with wide ranging budgets ($10,000 to over $50,000,000) and Equity as well as non-Equity companies. Despite our diversity, the artistic, educational, and managerial issues we face as individual organizations are, quite often, common to us all.
STA maintains a cadre of Associate Members whose service to STA, either as companies or individuals, warrant their inclusion in the organization. With the exception of Past Presidents, Associate Members must be nominated to STA by a company member in good standing, pay dues, and have no voting rights.
To be nominated, the potential candidate must request a short email nomination to the Vice President. Nominations are reviewed at regularly scheduled meetings. Associate Memberships are by invitation only and are reviewed annually by the Executive Committee.
Details on the definitions of Associate Membership can be found HERE.
To learn about associate membership, please email STA Vice President, Melissa Nicholson
All Members benefit from the networking and learning opportunities that STA membership offers.
