Introduction

This section presumes you:

Thank-you for choosing Theatre Manager. We have included this tutorial with the demonstration software to ensure your first use of Theatre Manager runs smoothly.

Theatre Manager is an enterprise wide application designed to manage ticket sales, donations, gift certificates, patrons, media, finances, web sales, ticket scanning & gate control, facilities, project planning, email blasts and much, much more.

Theatre Manager has always been an integrated customer relationship management (CRM) tool since its inception in 1985. 'Integrated' truly means from the ground up: sales on the Web interact in real time with the sales at the box office with common patrons. With Theatre Manager, you have one application that does it all – there is no data to transfer between modules.
