Let’s talk about ticket fees
After leaving the Northern Henrico Civic Association, CAT had to make some changes in our operations. One of those changes was partnering with a new company to manage our ticket sales, both online and at the box office. Our goal was to find an affordable and flexible company that provided a user-friendly experience for both customers and box office staff. We ultimately chose a company called On the Stage.
On the Stage offers more than just ticket sales support, they assist us in managing our website, social media, donation and fundraising efforts, and contact database. This assistance is made possible by the small fee they add to the online checkout and build into your ticket cost when you buy tickets in person. Additionally, they charge a minor fee for credit card transactions, similar to small merchants who also incur these fees from credit card companies. These fees are not intended to enrich any executive in a fancy office with a view. Instead, they are reinvested back into CAT in the form of services and advantages offered by OTS that are not available with other ticketing groups
We received a notification from OTS that new tools will be available for us to use, which will allow us to frequently communicate with you like this. As a result, the fee for this season will increase from $1.35 to $1.85 per ticket. Even though fees are going up slightly, our base prices before these fees will stay stable for the upcoming season, continuing to be one of the best values for local professional theatre in town!
