The Riverside Players are an amateur dramatic company based in Eynsford, Kent. They produce three shows a year: a pantomime in January and a play or musical in spring and autumn.
The Riverside Players have been using TicketSource for less than a year but theatre goers in the south east have embraced the convenience of buying tickets online.
Though still in their first year of using TicketSource, Riverside Players sold 75% of tickets for their latest performance online... with over 45% of all tickets being purchased outside of box office hours.
In a recent poll, 90% of Riverside Players customers gave positive feedback when asked about the introduction of the TicketSource online booking system.
Riverside Players have customised the header banner on their TicketSource sales screens and e-tickets to match their own website.
Here's what their Administrators had to say about TicketSource…
Riverside Players have now implemented online ticket sales. The Mikado in May 2011 was the first to trial this system and about two thirds of our sales were by this channel. It has been very successful, and we have also learnt a lot about how we can fine-tune it to make it even better.
We have chosen TicketSource to supply our online sales, an organisation used by hundreds of amateur dramatic companies up and down the country like ourselves. The closest company to home using TicketSource is The Bromley Little Theatre.
It enables you to select your own seats from a seating plan for the night of your choice, to make payment by secure credit card transaction. You obtain your ticket instantly by email. Just bring your e-ticket with you to the show like any other ticket.
