Main Floor Seats
Main floor seats are our premium, front-of-house (within 25 feet of the stage) seats in the center of the auditorium. The Main Floor section features comfortable seating on padded chairs at sturdy, hand-made pinewood tables, and its proximity to the stage and seating arrangement make it ideal for dining comfort and the full Shakespeare Tavern experience.
If you like the action up-close-and-personal, these are the seats for you!$310 per person or $77.50 per quarter.
Box seats are to the sides and back of the Main Floor and are slightly raised so as to provide maximum viewing ease. Box seats are within 30 feet of the stage, and offer padded seats and small pinewood tables for your comfort.
If you prefer seats that allow you to easily see the stage but give you a comfortable distance from the action, box seats are an excellent choice.$260 per person or $65 per quarter.
Balcony seats are within 40 feet of the stage and offer an excellent view in all three levels. All seats in the balcony can accommodate food and beverage trays.
If you prefer to see the entire stage at once so as not to miss any of the action, we recommend the balcony!$220 per person or $55 per quarter.
Securing Your Membership
Now that you’ve decided what type of Membership is right for you, we’ll make securing your Membership as easy as possible!
In order to give you some flexibility, you may pay your Shakespeare Tavern Club Membership fee for an entire 12-month period at once, or you may choose to break up the payment by having your credit card charged automatically each quarter.

To Pay QuarterlyTo pay for your membership in quarterly installments, please contact the Box Office at 404 874 5299 x 0, and we will be pleased to assist you.

What Happens Next
You mean after being officially declared a “person of taste, discretion, and judgment”?
You will begin receiving your communiqué from our Artistic Director within the month.
Your ticket vouchers will be mailed to your home or preferred address approximately one week prior to the beginning of each month and will be available for use immediately upon receipt. If you make a reservation using a voucher prior to the mailing (either online or via phone), the physical voucher will neither be printed nor mailed.
After having called the box office and reserved a ticket on your chosen night, please remember to bring your voucher with you so that it may be exchanged for an actual show ticket on the night you attend a performance.
You will also receive in the mail your “Person of taste, discretion, and judgment” pin which will entitle you to free coffee, tea, and soda at the bars, and other explanatory materials detailing the terms and benefits of your Club Membership.
Let the fun begin!
Please note that it will still be necessary to make ticket reservations (either by calling the box office or logging into your account on our website) when using your ticket vouchers, to ensure that a seat in your section is available for you. Your vouchers can be used anytime during the month in which they are valid. If you prefer to expand your horizons, you can sign up for our Flex Club. Flex Club vouchers expire at the end of each season, rather than at the end of each month.

The (not-so-fine) Fine Print
In the event that you wish to purchase already-discounted tickets such as a student ticket, a preview-night ticket, a Thursday/Sunday night balcony ticket or any other already reduced ticket, you will be asked to choose either your Club Member discount OR the open-to-the-public discount. You may still use your Club Member discount for any full-price ticket. Please contact our box office at 404 874 5299 x 0 for questions regarding your ticket discount.
According to the IRS, your Shakespeare Club dues are not tax deductible because you receive a substantial ticket benefit as part of your membership. However, for the tax year ending December 2012, each unused ticket voucher does represent a deductible gift of: $25.84 for Main Floor Club Vouchers; $21.67 for Box Seats Club Vouchers; $18.34 for Balcony Club Vouchers.
Prices and member benefits are subject to change, but we will give Club Members as much notice as possible when making these changes. Some restrictions do apply (for example, club vouchers may not be used around Valentine’s Day).
You must be current on your Club Membership dues in order to receive your vouchers.
