Creating a New Season Package

Subscribe to Syndicate

Season Packages are designed to providing patrons the opportunity to purchase the same series of performances within a select group of events while maintaining the same seat and pricing structure.

This help page is designed to be used if you have not done Season Subscriptions through Theatre manager in the past. If you are rolling over a previous season package, please visit the Season Rollover help page.

To create a new Season Package, you perform the following steps:

  1. Click Patron Sales >> Season Reservations >> Setup Season Packages.

    The Season Package List window opens.

    The Fiscal Year To field will update when the Fiscal Year is altered. The External Description can be displayed in the online ticketing module, ticket faces and in the renewal notices.

  4. Enter the Control House number in the This Year field.

    The Control House needs to be created before the season package can be built. The Event Lookup icon can be used to locate the Control House. The Control House can not be an event from the previous year. It must be an event specific to the season package.

    • You can now call up each subscription and enter a specific amount on an individual basis.
    • From the manage favourite seats window, you can select some subscribers and suggest a donation for them all.
    • You can select seats on the map and suggest a donation for all people in a specific area.
