As the Globe Guilder President, I have dealt with many obstacles relating to COVID-19 this year and last year. The city required the lockdown of all our events scheduled in 2020 and 2021, leaving us regrettably unable to gather in person. We have used Zoom to connect Guilders and participate in events like the MFA Virtual Luncheon we had in February.
The Globe Guilders began to 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 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.
Afforded to our members are many opportunities, such as meeting the actors, listening to exciting insight seminars, assisting with arts and engagement events, and being part of one of America’s imminent theatres.
We hope that being a theater lover and the desire to be a part of The Old Globe’s auxiliary, you will join our organization.
