Blyth Festival Membership

When you become a member of Blyth Festival, you become part of our success story.

For 49 seasons, we have produced the best in new Canadian theatre, telling the stories of this very place, this very region, and putting very real Canadian lives on stage.

And that has been possible thanks to the support, generosity and loyalty of our 1200+ members of the Blyth Festival who help us create our critically acclaimed productions year after year.

Membership starts from just $50 per year, with a host of benefits including priority ticket booking and access to reserved seating up until one week before each performance.

Membership fee or donation?

When you donate $50 or more to the Blyth Festival, you automatically become a Member. Your Membership level depends on how much you donate. That’s why Membership will receive a full tax receipt for the entire donated portion.

Memberships last for one year and are renewed on a rolling basis.

Less than 20% of our budget is spent on administration, saving the rest for our core mandate of producing and presenting new and existing Canadian work. So every dollar you donate really does make a difference.

  • Donations over $20 will receive a full tax receipt
  • Donations from $50 means you are automatically invited into our membership family.

“We have always enjoyed live theatre, and once we realized that Blyth offered such wonderful Canadian productions, it became part of our summers. The variety and versatility of the shows, and charms of the town and district will keep us coming back!”
