Before you add an event / play into Theatre Manager, a general ledger account number must be created for the new event / play. Refer to General Ledger Accounts for more information.

In the Event / Play window, there are eight different account number fields in five different ticket types. The eight accounts are:

  1. Sales
  2. Exchange
  3. Refund
  4. Discount
  5. Markup
  6. Ticket Fee account 1
  7. Ticket Fee account 2
  8. Ticket Fee account 3

The five ticket types are:

  1. Regular
  2. Season
  3. Other Type 1
  4. Other Type 2

Depending on how your accounting system is setup:
