The Old Rep launch their brand new membership scheme

BBC Midlands Today Reporter and Presenter Amy Cole

The Old Rep Theatre is thrilled to announce its exciting new Membership scheme, helping regular bookers to save on shows and events at the theatre, and to broaden the theatre’s vibrant community. Since 2014, when Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) took over its operation, The Old Rep has been rebranded as a theatre for young people, and this membership scheme allows young people to become more involved in the theatre than ever before.

By purchasing a yearly membership, you can help support the oldest purpose-built repertory theatre in Britain, and the valuable work we do providing young people across the city a chance to get involved in the performing arts, whilst enjoying a wide range of shows that cater for all tastes and ages.

There will be two types of Membership – a Front Row Member and a Young Supporter, which include:

Front Row Member (£40 per year)

  • Priority booking for selected shows
  • Removes booking fee on all ticket purchases

Gary Stevens, General Manager and Operations Director of The Old Rep said  “We are very excited to launch our new membership scheme, which is the ideal arrangement for everyone to be closer to what you love about Theatre. This all new Creative Membership scheme takes this one step further as we seek to embrace and nourish our local creative community. By providing the opportunity to join our schemes we’re ensuring that performances and what we do as a wider organisation are accessible to people that make it and those that will shape its future”.

“We are also excited to announce that our patron of the Front Row membership will be BBC Midlands Today Reporter and Presenter Amy Cole, who is delighted to be fronting the campaign. “The power of a live performance and its ability to transport you to another world is an awesome feeling. I am delighted to be an ambassador for The Old Rep, and I think the Membership Scheme is a great way for people to get involved in a theatre that’s thriving and to be part of its creative heritage”.
