Our Members Raise the Curtain!

When you become a member, you help support the Center’s ability to offer outstanding arts programming, which in return strengthens the vitality of our community. And, as a “Thank You,” you become eligible to receive a host of benefits (see table below).

Ticket sales only cover a portion of the Harris Center’s expenses. Additional support comes from performing arts lovers like you. Membership contributions are vital to bringing exciting touring performers to the area, providing affordable access for students and local artists, and keeping ticket prices reasonable. If you are a past member, please consider increasing your membership level and enjoy some exciting new benefits.

Member Presale

As a member, you have exclusive access to an annual presale period which allows you to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the public. At the Patron member level, you will also receive advance ticket purchase opportunities to newly added Harris Center Presents shows throughout the season.

Perpetual Giving Program

An affordable way to give the Harris Center’s Perpetual Giving Program allows you to donate monthly using a credit card. Your monthly contribution will be ongoing until you let us know you would like to change or cancel it. Perpetual Giving Program donations provide uninterrupted support to the Harris Center for the Arts, with the added benefit that your membership is always current. Have questions? Contact Harris Center Member Services Monday through Thursday at memberservices@harriscenter.net.

Thank You!

Although the Harris Center’s stage was temporarily closed on July 1, 2020, the community spirit created during the first 10 years persevered. Art sustains us during the good times and the not so good, and the generosity from the Harris Center patrons during the closure was astounding. Fond memories reminded everyone that there was a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Patron donations supported this spirit. We thank you for your loyalty, understanding, and patience during the closure and reopening.

Save the date!
