Elmwood Playhouse: Life Membership Awards

In the past six decades, Life Membership has been awarded to outstanding individuals who have consistently gone above and beyond in their contribution and dedication to the theatre. Nominees have had at least ten years of active membership, having been involved in many aspects of Elmwood’s success. They may have been President, swept the stage, headed committees, served on the Board, wielded a hammer, washed a paintbrush, baked and fed the masses, worked on fundraisers, directed hit musicals, designed costumes, sets or lighting, but they have been continually volunteering, over and over, and often at the 11th hour.
