Becoming a Member

Like other performing arts theatres, earned income accounts for about half of the Palace’s operating costs. The remainder of the funding comes from a variety of donations — the Ohio Arts Council, Marion Community Foundation, corporate sponsorships, other grants, and foundations, as well as individual contributions through membership donations. The Palace Cultural Arts Association (PCAA) is a 501 (c) (3) member-supported, volunteer-assisted organization.

On average, the theatre serves over 60,000 patrons and guests annually through its programs and directly benefits the local economy in Marion County by attracting visitors from other cities, counties, and states. In addition, the activities at the Palace impact the quality of life for our residents and those it attracts, providing live performances by national touring artists and local talent alike.

July 2024 marks the beginning of the Marion Palace Theatre’s 96th Season. We believe there’s never been a more perfect time to show your support and love of the arts and of the Palace by joining as a member. The benefits are numerous and the perks are plentiful.
