When you’re ready to start selling tickets for a production, you will probably want a way to provide a “Buy Tickets” link from your theater’s home page directly to Audience1st’s Buy Tickets page.

There are five ways to do this.

This method yields a link that lands on the “Buy Tickets” page with a particular production pre-selected. The patron must still select a performance date.

  1. Login to Audience1st as box office staff or higher.

  2. Click the Season tab.

  3. Click the link icon link next to the name of a production.

  4. A pop-up box will appear with a link that you can copy and paste onto your theater’s website.

  2. Click the Season tab.

  3. Click the name of the production for which you want to link to a performance.
