Be a part of something remarkable !

Santa Cruz Shakespeare members provide the essential funds necessary to make each season a success.

Even a gift at the Friend level ($50) makes an impact!

As a valued part of the SCS family, you’ll receive advanced access to ticket sales each May, discounts and special offers through the SCS Community Partners Program, and opportunities to bring you closer to the creative process and company of artists.
