We Know Theatre
Tessitura’s unified platform helps you understand and connect effectively with your patrons. Comprehensive functionality across all departments – ticketing, packages, marketing, fundraising, education, and more – empowers you to maximize your revenue and build deeper relationships.
Tessitura works primarily with non-profit arts and cultural organizations, and the organization is a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative. We serve organizations of all sizes, from 10 users to 1,000 users, and from 20,000 tickets to 6 million tickets per year. Whether you want to increase subscriber loyalty, find new donors, improve your website, offer creative packages and discounts, or engage the community through education and outreach, Tessitura can help you achieve your goals.
“N-Scan’s been fantastic. It’s allowed our front of house staff to change seats immediately if we have unexpected wheelchairs, kids scared of heights. We can solve that within two minutes versus the 10-15 that it would take to get the patron downstairs to the box office to fix the tickets and back upstairs.”
Kristina Miller, Children’s Theatre Company
“Tessitura helps you be more donor-centered because you're able to look at the whole person. You can treat them as an entire patron, because that's how the patrons view our organization.”
Amy Schwab Lampi, Alley Theatre
“Having TNEW has been a success. It's very easy to work with. And it's very easy to manipulate and create a lot of little things that end up making a big difference.”
Jolene Robichaud, Imagination Stage
“We reorganized into the patron services model. We put our entire subscriber base into portfolios managed by six staff who track their subscribers throughout the course of the season. And we've had some of the highest renewal rates in years.”
Luke Robertson, Portland Center Stage
“I’ve been on a half dozen ticketing systems and by far, Tessitura is the best one because it’s not just a ticketing piece — it’s the entire CRM model.”
Sean Wright, The Grand Theater
