In arts marketing, we know there is a balance between growing new audiences and developing loyalty. And, that there are always limited resources to do so. After a successful inaugural cohort last year, TRG Arts and Theatre Communications Group have partnered again to form the second exclusive cohort: Single Ticket Theatre Collective.
The Theatre Collective is a unique model that combines one-on-one consulting with classroom-style learning to boost your single ticket marketing. From campaign planning to implementation and measurement, the Collective is a hands-on, results-oriented program to grow loyalty (and revenue!) at your organization from the ground up.
Interested organizations are encouraged to apply as soon as possible in order to ensure proper consideration prior to the deadline on Friday, April 3, 2020.
Who should apply:
- TCG Member Theaters with budgets between $1 million – $4 million;
- Theaters where single ticket sales are;
- In decline; or
- Are experiencing growth.
This is right for you if:
You’re ready to INVEST in strategic efforts to grow your audience.
- You value data, are game for a change, love to learn, and more than anything: value the loyalty of your audience.
- You’re an arts professional committed to building relationships in the field.
- Your organization is actively seeking results-oriented professional development.
What to Expect:
- Expert counsel to maximize single ticket revenue and deepen patron loyalty.

What it Looks Like:
