When women like you come together, great things happen!

Your leading role awaits — no auditions necessary! With a Leading Ladies membership, you get a backstage pass to four exclusive and exciting "girls' night out" events, where you get an insiders' look into what it takes to bring world-class theatre to life; meet the incredible professionals who create these experiences; and share these experiences with fellow theatre-loving women!

Plus, your support will help sponsor the mainstage production Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling. You'll be the first to see this show at "The Big Event" — before it opens to the public!


Discover what goes on behind the scenes! Become a 2021-22 Leading Lady by clicking the button below, or by printing a pledge card and mailing it to 962 Mt. Adams Circle, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
