2017-2018 Theoroi Membership Application
Application Deadline: August 31, 2017 or when all spots are filled
Theoroi is a project of The Schubert Club that aims to cultivate the next generation of Twin Cities arts audiences by engaging a select group of arts ambassadors in a curated season of diverse arts performances and sparking curiosity about the arts through the use of social media.
Over 50% of the cost of participating of Theoroi is subsidized by The Schubert Club. Because of this, membership in the program is only $100 for new members and $150 for returning members. Your membership will include:
- Tickets to all arts events on the Theoroi schedule.
- Drinks or appetizers at many of the events.
- Extra educational opportunities arranged specifically for this group.
- Discounts to Schubert Club performances and many other arts organizations as they become available.
Also, don’t forget the many priceless advantages you’ll get from being a part of Theoroi:
- VIP status at Theoroi events with special opportunities such as meeting the artists, backstage tours, and premium seating.
- Opportunity to raise your social media profile.
- A great group of about 30 friends.
We also ask for a $50 deposit that will be refunded at the conclusion of the season when all attendance and posting requirements of the program have been successfully met. Payment is due at the time of application. All funds will be refunded if not accepted into the program.
Theoroi Membership Guidelines 2017-2018
PARTICIPATION: Participants must be between the ages of 21 and 39. Applicants will be notified upon acceptance into the program by August 31, 2017. If participants wish to attend as a couple, both individuals are required to submit an application and both must fulfill the posting requirement.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS & ATTENDANCE: The Theoroi calendar consists of six arts performances plus many other social events and will be finalized in the fall. Members are required to attend all scheduled events. If a conflict arises, members are responsible for finding their own replacement or working with the Theoroi program manager to coordinate a substitute. Failure to attend without advance notice will result in forfeiture of member’s deposit and may result in removal from the program.
MEMBERSHIP PRICE: Over 50% of the cost of participating in Theoroi is subsidized by Schubert Club and its Theoroi partners. Thanks to this generous support, we are able to offer an introductory membership price for first year participants of only $100. Every returning year the price is $150, which is still a heavily subsidized price. In addition to tickets to the performances, we also arrange educational events and social components to accompany each cultural event (some of which include drinks or snacks).
We also ask for a $50 deposit that will be refunded at the conclusion of the season when all attendance and posting requirements of the program have been successfully met.
POSTING & SOCIAL MEDIA REQUIREMENT: Participants will use social media to share about each cultural experience. Members may use whatever social media mechanism they choose (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, Blogs, etc.) and there is no minimum length to posts. Members are asked to “tag” Theoroi in their posts or email a link to the program manager. To have a central social media platform, members are required to have a Facebook profile and join and actively participate the Theoroi Facebook group. Using social media to spread the word about the arts is a core component of Theoroi, so failure to complete this requirement may result in forfeiture of the deposit.
PAYMENT: Payment is due at the time of application. All funds will be refunded if not accepted into the program. Please ask about payment plans. Deposits are refunded at the conclusion of the season when all requirements have been met. If a member will not be receiving their deposit back, this will have been communicated to them prior to the end of the season.
