As of April 1, 2016, first time members may join and pay for a membership which will be good from April 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 for an annual fee of $75 or $35 for those who are 35 years of age and younger as of the date you join. You have to be at least 16 years of age to join.  Normally our membership year runs from June 1 through May 31 of the following year, so take advantage of the extra couple of months by joining in April or May.

The Saints is a non-profit service organization whose mission is to assist the performing arts community of metro Chicago through ushering and providing grants. If you are a lover of music, theatre or dance, this is the organization for you.  A Saints membership offers the most affordable way to experience the best that Metro Chicago offers in dance, music and theater. For a $75 membership that would be less than $5.50 a month (less than 2 tall Caffe Lattes).  If you are 35 years or younger the monthly cost is less than $3 a month (one Caffe Mocha).  Spring into action by clicking on the How to Join tab. Then sign up to attend one of our New Member Orientations which are held at a variety of times and places throughout Chicagoland.



 The Saints are volunteers for the performing arts.  At the present time our 2000+ members serve well over one hundred Chicago and suburban theater, dance and music organizations, ranging in size from storefronts to world-class theaters, from seasonal musical groups to world-trotting dance companies.

The Saints members provide help to these groups for a variety of activities including ushering at performances and in return are allowed to attend these activities and performances at no charge.  Members choose the venues and performances where they want to volunteer, as often as they like.

The Saints also award financial grants to not-for-profit performing arts organizations located in Chicago and the surrounding area. in 2015 the Saints will donate over $110,000.00 in grants to over twenty different performing arts organizations.


The Saints hold General Membership Meetings several times a year.  These meetings offer members the opportunity to learn more about the organization and its affairs, meet and socialize with other members and to participate in interesting presentations given by famous personalities from the performing arts community. The Saints members also receive a monthly newsletter, "Spotlight", which lists the numerous volunteering opportunities.  These opportunities are updated twice weekly via the “CyberLine” e-mail to all members.

The Saints is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable corporation and donations to The Saints are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
