See More for Less with Backstage Pass

Imagine, for a moment, that you wanted to forge a closer connection with Nottingham Playhouse and enjoy inside knowledge on its shows. Imagine that you wanted to register your support for quality theatre in a meaningful way. Imagine that you wanted to enjoy more live performance – and to spend less money doing it.

Now imagine no longer.

Amy’s View is presented with thanks to Backstage Pass, which offers all of this and more. Nottingham Playhouse’s fantastic membership scheme, Backstage Pass treats you to an array of social events, special insights and serious savings – all in the knowledge that you are helping to promote and maintain the making of first-rate professional theatre right here in Nottingham.

Join Backstage Pass and you’ll enjoy savings of up to 50% on all our productions, reductions on dining in CAST and a generous range of discounts at other venues and outlets. It need only take a couple of visits to cover the cost of a year’s membership and wherever possible, you’ll be the first to know when new shows are scheduled and the first to have a chance to book.

Just as importantly, you will gain a privileged insight into the making of Playhouse productions. Newsletters and emails keep you up to date with the latest stories and there are regular opportunities to meet the actors and directors.

You even get to step into the rehearsal room: the extremely popular Rehearsal Suppers are an opportunity to see work in progress and put questions to the cast and creative team, followed by a chance to chat over food and wine. That’s just part of a programme of social events designed to make you part of the Playhouse family.

Besides all that, you will know that you’re doing your bit to keep Nottingham Playhouse – a registered charity – working to make theatre of the first quality. Our increasing membership roll supports both the theatre’s mainstage shows and its vital work in the community, through its education department Roundabout, its Youth Theatre and much more. At a time when the live arts are under great pressure, Backstage Pass members play a crucial role in supporting the Playhouse right now and for future generations.

That’s why we wanted to say thank you to our members by dedicating Amy’s View to them. This is a play that itself has a great deal to say about the worth of live theatre, whether the economic outlook is boom or bust. Our Backstage Pass members have shown that they value what we do and their support is greatly valued in return by everyone at Nottingham Playhouse.

Membership has doubled in the past year as more and more people realise that Backstage Pass offers them a closer relationship with the world-class producing theatre on their doorsteps. See opposite for more detail of the benefits you can enjoy: just £30 covers two people for a full year.
