Membership in Grosse Pointe Theatre Has Its Benefits!
Grosse Pointe Theatre members take pride in their productions and in the friendships they gain by working together for a common goal. We are all volunteers from many surrounding communities. We welcome new members!
Joining GPT is only the first step. The more active you become, the more benefits you receive … and the more fun you can have! Our members have opportunities beyond the Main Stage:
- Workshops/Education – Featured at our bi-monthly Membership Meetings, workshops offer new directors, writers and performers, a voice and place to share their talents. Specific education classes are also offered throughout the year.
- Ushering – Ushers are needed for each performance. This is not only a great chance to see each show, but an opportunity to get involved and meet our patrons.
- Volunteer Roles – GPT depends on our members to help build sets, to sew costumes, to find props, to design lights, to coordinate make-up and hair … you get he idea … to Get Involved!

- Membership Directory – Published in December, it gives you the contact information to reach other members, and allows them to reach you.
- Social Times – Beyond the spotlight of the stage, GPT is a “family” that offers a welcoming community feeling. Special social events like the Annual Awards Dinner, Summer Picnic and Closing Cast/Crew Parties are open to all members and help us stay connected.
