Chicago Magic Round Table

Membership Handbook and Policies


Your membership card should be carried with you when you visit the Chicago Magic Lounge. It must be presented for admission, and to receive your 10% discount on food and beverages. Replacement membership cards can be requested from John Sturk,, for a $10 replacement fee.


Membership renewals must be paid by January 1 of the calendar year. A membership left unpaid is considered lapsed, but can be reinstated for $250 (for residents) or $150 (for non-residents) for the year's dues, plus a $50 reinstatement fee. Members who join throughout the year will have their dues pro-rated.


Your membership entitles you to free admission for one to any show at the Chicago Magic Lounge. Admission is subject to capacity limits of the venue; and will be determined by the CML Box Office staff. Seating in the Blackstone Cabaret is on a "first-available" basis.

RT Members may purchase an additional ticket for one guest at 50% off the original ticket price. Visit the Box Office to purchase.

An area in the mezzanine overlooking the bar has been designated "Round Table Members Only". Members are welcome to use this area during the building's normal operating hours, and during shows, unless otherwise noted for special events.


Members are welcome to make use of our reference library during designated hours. Books should remain in either the library area or the members-only area of the mezzanine. Books should be returned to the Box Office for re-shelving. 


Members are allowed to book the Blackstone Cabaret during non-show hours for rehearsal space. You're welcome to bring in your own collaborators with you during this time. Use the schedule page to book your times. You may book for multiple times back-to-back, but do remember to share nicely with your fellow members. Schedule a time HERE.
