1 Year Annual Membership for Canada & Mexico.
$60 dues plus $15 postal surcharge.
Membership dues directly support the mission of THS, however, like many non-profits, they only cover a portion of THS’ expenses. We rely on additional generous contributions from donors to continue our programs like the American Theatre Architecture Archive (which is the largest collection of its kind) for future generations.

• Deep discounts on popular theatre-related titles through the THS Bookstore

• Discounts on THS merchandise
• Discounts on special tours with partner organizations (2013 Benefit: THS discount on Chicago Architecture Foundation Tours)
• Advance notice of Conclave Theatre Tour locations
