Become a Member of the Pewter Plough Playhouse

Jim Buckley has helped to ensure the continuation of this robust play-producing organization by having it transformed into a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation that we — members of the community — are operating.

Our plans for the future include:

• Creating a subscription season comprising some of the best plays of classic American theatre, works with modern appeal, and tributes to American songwriters.

• Enhancing the intimacy of our theatre by installing new, more comfortable chairs. We will continue our tradition of naming the chairs (and tickets) after some of the most famous stars of the Golden Age of the American Theatre.

• Developing further our Readers' Theatre as a testing ground for potential productions and as a forum for yet-to-be-produced playwrights.

• Continuing to involve residents of the Central Coast communities through scholarships and grants and to nurture acting by offering workshops conducted by noted professionals. For example, Nehemiah Persoff recently conducted such a workshop.

The Pewter Plough is now, more than ever, your community theatre. Whether you are already a patron supporting our productions or someone new beginning to enjoy these enriching events, we now invite you to become more personally involved. We invite you to become a vital part of our family as a Member of the Pewter Plough.

Your membership will help support our productions and plans for the future. Virtually every nonprofit performing arts center in the country depends on sponsors and donors in addition to ticket sales in order to survive and thrive. Our ability to continue to produce quality theatre will depend, in large part, on the generosity of our members. Fully tax-deductible annual memberships are $25, $50, $100, $250, and $500. We will acknowledge contributions of $25 or more in our printed show programs.

As mentioned above, we have replaced our chairs — the unique movie-director-type chairs built especially for the Pewter Plough. While they have served us well over almost 30 years, we have heard the occasional complaints about their comfort. The new chairs continue to pay tribute to 61 of the greatest stars of the Golden Age of the American Theatre. As a new feature, you can sponsor a chair for a tax-deductible donation of $1,000, with a nameplate on your designated chair (for 10 years, subject to renewal).
