How It Works

Whether you’re a high school or college department, a community or regional theater, or an independent company, ON THE STAGE will take your production operations pro.

Promote to the public, sell tickets and merch, manage seating, accept donations, and track all the money from your show’s own website.

With ON THE STAGE it’s fast, it’s easy…and, best of all, it’s FREE.

LET ON THE STAGE SUPPORT YOUR NEXT PRODUCTION

CREATE YOUR CUSTOM WEBSITE

  • Select your show from our extensive list of ready-made templates. Don’t see your title? Let us know! We’ll make it for you.
  • Choose the theme that best suits your show…or create your own look with original artwork.
  • Upload production photos/video, cast and crew bios/headshots, and information about the show.
  • Need more support? Choose our optional Build-It-For-You package and we’ll create your site to spec!

SELL TICKETS AND MANAGE SEATING ONLINE

  • ON THE STAGE makes the ordering process easy. After a purchase or reservation is made, the patron receives an email containing their ticket(s) and receipt, all customized with your show information and artwork.
  • Once your site is live for ticket sales, just log into the Production Console to view and manage orders.
  • Configure your account for donations and make fundraising part of the checkout process.

DESIGN AND SELL MERCHANDISE FOR YOUR SHOW OR ORGANIZATION

  • Create and sell merch right from your website’s online shop. Choose from t-shirts, mugs, tote bags, and more. Upload your logo and poster art, or use one of our custom designs.
  • Forget the hassle of guesstimating sizes and quantities or storing unsold promotional items. We’ll print and ship to your audience members on demand!

ENGAGE YOUR AUDIENCE WITH INTEGRATED PROMOTION TOOLS

  • Keep effortlessly up to date on audience communication with automated emailing. Thank your patrons for their purchases, show off your merch, even invite them to share your event with friends and online social networks.
  • Have a full season to promote or another show on the horizon? With ON THE STAGE your audience database remains active even after your production closes, making outreach for future events as easy as click-and-send.
  • Streamline your Marketing and PR efforts with our optional Done-for-You Promotional Materials package. You’ll get a custom flyer, social media graphics (sized and optimized for multiple outlets), a media release and announcement blurb, and email invitations to send to patrons, friends, and family of the cast and crew.

TRACK YOUR SALES WITH CUSTOM REPORTS

  • ON THE STAGE makes it easy to generate comprehensive audience and financial reports. Ticket and merchandise sales, donations, customer database—whatever information you need, it’s there at the click of a button.

AND DID WE MENTION…IT’S FREE!

Your ON THE STAGE website and all related services will never cost you a cent.

How can we offer so much for nothing?
By building in a nominal per-transaction service charge to ticket purchasers, just like any online ticketing company.

Interested in our add-on services?
Great! The cost for those will be deducted from your ticket sales, so you’ll see no up-front charges even at the premium level!
