CTG Launches Ticket-Buying App on Facebook

Center Theatre Group Unveils Facebook App to Organize Theatre Trips

Center Theatre Group in L.A. has unveiled a new Facebook app that will help friends organize a night to the theatre, and gives each friend the ability to purchase their own tickets—yet will keep the group seated together. The app was developed in conjunction with the Tessitura Network, JCA (Jacobson Consulting Applications) and six national theatre partners, and “allows a user to suggest theatre outings with Facebook friends, and then decide on a performance, select seats and purchase tickets–all on Facebook.  Depending on a user’s chosen privacy setting, performance and seating locations can be shared with other Facebook friends.” The Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Kennedy Center, Stratford Festival, San Francisco Ballet, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and Seattle Repertory Theatre were the other theatres that provided resources and direction for the project. In addition to CTG, the Segerstrom Center and the Stratford Festival also currently offer the Facebook app. A link to the app is available by visiting Center Theatre Group’s Facebook page at CenterTheatreGroup.org/facebooktix.
