Leading Ladies                              



In the spirit of fun and celebration, Leading Ladies is designed to engage women by providing the opportunity to connect with each other through a shared passion for Playhouse Square and its not-for-profit mission.

Members are invited to four exclusive events throughout the year, such as pre-show cocktail receptions, special guest speaker luncheons, and behind-the-scenes experiences. In addition, opportunities to volunteer on a special project or program will occasionally be offered for those who are looking to become more involved. Members will receive special recognition and the latest Playhouse Square news and updates.

Membership is open to everyone and enrollment is open year round. An annual membership is $250, which includes a $100 tax deductible donation to support Playhouse Square.
