Former Passport Members:

We are thrilled to announce our Friends of Center Theatre Group membership program. As of July 1, 2019, Passport has merged with Friends.

What’s changing for you? Not much. Through our Friends Ticket Presales, you’ll continue to enjoy the ability to purchase tickets, with preferred pricing, before the general public for all three of our theatres. Plus, you’ll enjoy these new benefits:

  1. Annual membership fee has decreased from $125 to $100
  2. Friends is a donor group, and so your membership renewal will now be recognized as a donation, and will be fully tax-deductible*
  3. During each presale window, you’ll be able to access more discounted tickets per production than before (previously 2, now up to 8 total). Discounts will match subscriber pricing.
  4. There are no restrictions on price levels or sections
  5. Your $100 Fan-level Center Theatre Group Membership also includes our member newsletter and membership card.

Learn more about our new Friends membership program.

Active Passport members: Your membership transitioned into Friends in July 2019, and you retain your current membership expiration date. When your membership expires, you can renew as a Friend to continue your benefits. Contact our Membership Concierge at 213.972.7564 (Monday-Friday 10am-6pm) with any questions or to renew as a Friend.

*Your tax-deductible contribution receipt will be mailed to you after your next membership renewal.
