Case Study: Stellar Customer Service

Founded in 1991 in Plano, Texas, North Texas Performing Arts (NTPA) brings the arts to youth through six theatre troups in the Dallas/Plano area. With1,000 performances annually, NTPA relies on ThunderTix's tech-friendly interface and video tutorials for their large staff of volunteers. To NTPA, these easy-peasy features clearly make ThunderTix the best box office software.

During the height of the pandemic, ThunderTix showed their customer commitment by rapidly building an array of features that helped NTPA navigate social distancing with automatic seat blocking and the ability to retain revenues with gift card refunds during a wave of cancellations.

NTPA ougrew the limits of Woo Commerce as they expanded to 5 different venues. "In 2016 we were doing paper tickets. Cutting them and handing them out. That was crazy to me. It was a massive upgrade. Instantly received well by families and staff."


NTPA LOVES the self-service abilties for change requests on ticket orders. Their customers perform their own exchanges, refund requests, and even convert their purchases to a donation when they're unable to attend performances. This is a huge time-saving feature for both staff and customers!


Fine-grained control of user permissions enables NTPA to create unlimited logins with specific oversiight. Coupons and flex passes track comped orders, and the resulting reports provide details for grant requests and ensure comps are distributed equitably.


The feature requests provides a way to share your ideas and vote on others. "We have put in several that have come to fruition."
The "round up" feature for donations at the time of purchase is signfificant. "We get a ton of donations through that prompt and love it."

"Simple to use. Simple to integrate. Simple to get support. Simple to get feature requests evaluated and even implemented. We switched from a significantly more expensive platform. The conversion was trivial....I'm a fan....Granted when reps of the company came through town...they took my wife and I to lunch...They are just that doggone good. You're through shopping. Hit 'buy now'."

Founder, Rover Dramawerks

"Our organization is a small, 100% volunteer community theatre. Without staff, using a software that has a million bells and whistles but takes months to master just wasn't an option for us. ThunderTix was immediately very easy to use.
Their support is awesome and they take recommendations and bug reports really seriously. It sort of has a "local business" feel to it."
