Can I apply a recent ticket purchase towards a membership?

Can I give a membership as a gift?

Yes, memberships make stellar holiday, anniversary, birthday or everyday gifts! Purchases can be made online or over the phone. For online gift memberships, click on the level you would like to give and add this to your cart. You will need to place an “X” in the checkbox for “This membership is a gift.” You will then be prompted for the information on your purchase, along with the information on the gift recipient.
