Friends of Chautauqua Theater is a support organization dedicated to ensuring that the theater remains a powerful pillar of the arts community at CHQ.

  • Support a climate of growing community involvement since 1994; underscoring the Chautauqua Institution’s commitment to theater as a vital part of the performing arts.
  • Provide funds toward supporting innovative and dynamic initiatives that bring professional quality theater to CHQ.
  • Enjoy spending time with other Friends, building relationships with the Company as they inspire, entertain, and teach the entire CHQ community about the magic of theater.
  • Participate in play discussions, tech rehearsal observations, combined Friend/Company events, and additional off-season activities.

Your membership helps:

  • Prepare meals for technical days, set change nights, and occasional luncheons for tech and office staff.
  • Meet Chautauqua Theater Company needs throughout the season, as they occur, in strange ways (just ask).
  • Host a cast party and an annual benefit.
  • Support new theater initiatives.
  • Provide an annual scholarship for a conservatory artist.

Friends are also involved in the life of Chautauqua Theater in other ways:

  • Some Friends “adopt” company members to provide “CHQ” experiences throughout the summer.
  • Some Friends attend additional membership only CTC programs to enhance their understanding of the theater and the plays.
  • All Friends are invited to the annual “Meet the Company” opening event and other activities throughout the season.
  • Additional Producer’s Circle membership is free and open to those interested in a more active CTC volunteer role and brings you an invitation to an exclusive PC party at the end of every season.
