Membership has its privileges! MLP members pay $50 annually and enjoy special perks including reserved seating and zero charge for performance fees. *Non-MLP members who are cast are charged a non-refundable $20 performance fee at the first rehearsal. **We are pleased to be in a place where we have reduced this fee for performers by $10 for Spring Awakening!
All who are cast will also give a $30 check to the stage manager for security when issued their libretto at the first rehearsal. That check will be returned to the cast member in exchange for the return of the libretto, in good condition, free of markings at strike. All fees paid to MLP are tax deductible. We look forward to the day we no longer have to ask performers to pay – we may be Mid-life but we are a young organization. Thank you!
*Please do not let economics prevent you from accepting a role. If you are not able to pay the $20 performance fee, financial aid is available. If this applies to you, please let a staff member know in confidence.
