Leading Ladies

Step into the spotlight

The Playhouse Leading Ladies program offers women who are passionate about theatre an opportunity to "step into the spotlight" and enjoy behind-the-scenes access with special events throughout the season.

As a Playhouse Leading Lady, you will also help sponsor Jane Eyre — a classic Leading Ladies show!

Whether you join as a Grande Dame ($1,500), Diva ($1,000) or Starlet ($500), you’ll enjoy three exclusive Leading Ladies events that provide technical, wardrobe and artistic access and insights. And for the fourth "Big Finale" event, you're encouraged to bring a girlfriend* to attend the Leading Ladies' Night reception and be the first audience to see Jane Eyre before it opens to the public! You'll also be recognized in Playhouse programs and on this page as a Leading Lady throughout the season.

*Starlets may bring one guest to the final event of the season; Divas may bring two guests: Grande Dames may bring three!
