One of the most important roles at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts is the one you can play as a member of the Patrons’ Circle.

With a minimum tax-deductible gift of $50,000 (payable over a five-year period) you can help us maintain world-class, multicultural programming for all ages and stages of life, enhance one of the largest arts-in-education programs in the country, and develop local talent and organizations that reflect the mosaic of cultures represented in our community today.

Membership entitles you to: 

  • Personal ticket concierge service
  • Ticket processing and exchange fees waived
  • Opportunity to purchase extra tickets to performances, as available, through your personal ticket concierge prior to other membership levels
  • Guaranteed purchase of two lower orchestra seats (time limits apply)
  • Complimentary access to the Josephine S. Leiser Room, our private benefactors’ lounge at the Broward Center, for members one hour before and through the intermission of evening performances in the Au-Rene Theater. (On occasion, members may invite guests to accompany them when space is available)
  • Complimentary access to The Place To Be: A Gift from the Wendts, our private donors’ lounge at The Parker, for members one hour before and through the intermission of evening performances at The Parker. (On occasion, members may invite guests to accompany them when space is available)
