As the new Globe Guilder President, I feel the next two years will be exciting and fruitful in building new membership and expanding the relationship with the artistic and arts engagement programs.
The Globe Guilders began so the members could assist and help organize in almost every area of the Globe. It might have meant selling and taking tickets, helping to usher people to their seats, and in some cases, selling meat pies on the green. We have come a long way since the Globe Guilders began in 1955, and promoting membership in the Theatre and attendance at theatre productions continues to be one of our main goals. We encourage service by members in the various volunteer activities essential to the operation and growth of the Old Globe. One of these activities is helping the Masters of Fine Arts students become more connected with our city, the theatre and our members. Many Guilders are also involved in other aspects of volunteering at The Old Globe through personal relationships, social media, and the Globe Guilders website. We all precipitate as goodwill ambassadors for The Old Globe in the community. Each year the Guilders present a spectacular fashion show. 2020 is the 30th Anniversary of Celebrate Couture. Each year in conjunction with Neiman Marcus, the Guilders produce this show.
Afforded to our members are many opportunities, such as meeting the actors, listen to exciting insight seminars, assisting with arts and engagement events, and being part of one of the imminent theatres in America.
We hope that being a theater lover and the desire to be a part of the auxiliary of The Old Globe, you will join our organization.
