Make it easy for Parents and Families to attend School Theater
Organizing a performance at a school or a place of worship can be a test of faith at times. You need all the help you can get to move Heaven and Earth creating a precious memory for parents and families. ThunderTix helps you sell tickets online online with reserved seating and the ability to ask for donations. Here are the benefits of using our school theater ticketing software:
Sell Tickets Online Long Before the Day of the Show
Sell tickets online well in advance of the show just like a high tech concert. Having a “virtual box office” is easier than you think. You just create a new event, set the dates, times and ticket price and let us do the rest. We even offer stand alone web pages with a personalized web address if you don’t have a website of your own.
If your church or school hands out tickets for young people to sell as “ticket agents”, our ticketing software will keep track of how many each one sold and for how much. ThunderTix sofatware is easy to use and getting up and running is just a quick phone call away.
Prevent Long Lines with Reserved Seating
With our school theater ticketing software parents and families can buy tickets from their home computer instead of having to make an extra trip to buy them in person. Not only that, but since they bought them in advance using our reserved seating, they won’t have to get to your performance early and wait in line to get a good seat.
With reserved seating, large groups can make advance reservations so they can all sit together. Reserved seating also has the benefit of variable pricing. You can modify the ticket prices by section to offer the best seats at a higher price. If your venue doesn’t have the capacity for everyone to go in a single performance, you can add additional shows as needed. Please see our seating chart guide on the considerations of reserved seating if you have questions.
Ask for Donations during the Ticket Purchase Process
Does your theater or religious organization accept charitable donations? If it does, we have the tools for you to ask people to give generously during the ticket purchase process. Your customers are already in a buying mood, so it’s the perfect opportunity to display a heartfelt message. Using our software you can write custom donation requests and set dollar amounts to be given (“Help us meet our funding goal. Pledge $5, $10, $20 today!“) to your charity or school. The messages can be unique for each event.
Reminder, we do not take anything from your donations – you keep 100% of all donations proceeds.
Get Immediate Access to Funds for Ticket Sales
Schools and places of worship are often under tight budget constraints. When you use ThunderTix, you keep every penny from ticket sales because we don’t charge any fees and we don’t take a percentage of your transactions. You won’t have to wait until the day of your event for your money either. Funds are directly deposited nightly into your business bank account allowing you to utilize the money as it comes in. You can put this towards other production costs or begin to fund your next performance. It’s your choice.
Let Parents & Families Buy Tickets On Your Facebook Page
Facebook is very popular with students and many parents too! Our Facebook app lets you sell tickets right from your Facebook Page the same way it works on your website. The conversation and excitement taking place in Facebook comments, can be turned into ticket sales and donations for your event. Our app is installed into your Facebook Page and allows patrons to securely buy ticket sales without ever leaving the familiarity of their favorite social networking site. We save you time too since making changes to your event inside your ThunderTix account automatically updates the information on your Facebook Page. No more double entry!
The power of social media continues to help sell your tickets because every purchase made on Facebook includes a confirmation email. You can enable social sharing buttons to those emails letting buyers spread the word of your event on both Twitter and Facebook (“I just bought tickets to the Christmas Holiday Special!“)
Use the Ticket as an Additional Fund Raising Tool
Our popular Print-at-Home PDF ticket option is first and foremost a cost savings measure for your event. By letting people print their tickets at home, using their printer, you can save money by not paying to have custom tickets printed. There is a great convenience for your patrons too since they won’t have to stand in line before the start of the event to buy tickets.
Lower costs and buyer convenience are not all. The Print-at-Home ticket can also be customized with space for advertisements or donor names. It is entirely optional, and of course it all depends on the nature of your event. Religious organizations can use the space to direct their congratulations to the website to make donations, or let them know of next week’s bake sale.
School Theater Ticketing Software Pricing & Payment Plans
Pricing for our school theater ticketing software is based on total amount of tickets sold annually. Account renewal license will be based on the prior year’s total tickets sold, and will be adjusted accordingly as ticket usage increases for the current year. We do not charge your donors per-ticket fees and we give you complete control over any ticket and processing fees you wish to apply.
