MCTA Membership Rate Increase

Membership rates and categories have not changed since 2012.   Over the last two years, MCTA has dramatically upgraded its presence on the internet and on social media, resulting in increased ongoing costs. 

For example, take a look at TheatreMonterey.org, to see our updated website. The Back Stage now includes a wonderful column, "AT THIS STAGE" by our Teen Theater Columnist, Gracie Balistreri.  New ad design copy and marketing materials prominently promoting individual theatres, performance Calendar postings not only on MCTA sites, but also on MCCVB extranet and walk in MCCVB Visitor's Bureau, to name a few.

We will continue to work with our theatres to provide discounted tickets to our members.   New member activities are in the works for 2018, so watch our announcements on the newsletter and on the website.
