What does success look like for community theater companies? Is it sold out shows or subscription sell-outs? Does it come in the form of government grants and substantial donor contributions? Or is it simply the ability to say that you have produced a performing art piece of considerable quality?
So, how do you define success?
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines success as the following:
- the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect, or fame;

While these are all completely valid definitions, I particularly like point 2; success is all about achieving a desired result or better yet, meeting goals.
Once again, the secondary ticketing market is causing problems for true fans and music lovers around the globe. Of course, the nature of supply and demand will often leave would-be concertgoers disappointed when they can’t secure tickets to their favorite act; however, it’s an entirely different matter when purchased tickets become re-released into secondary ticketing markets only moments after the show is announced as “sold out.”
On the hunt for an incredible online ticketing system that offers your performing arts organization all of the features that you need at a price that you can afford? Look no further – we’re here to help!
This is our third instalment in a review of online ticketing systems. So far we’ve taken a look at Eventbrite and Brown Paper Tickets. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at Vendini’s all-in-one solution, as well as a few key points to ponder when considering this particular ticketing system.

In the hopes of protecting fans from fraud (and discouraging scalpers from buying tickets in bulk) the House of Lords and House of Commons have come to an agreement for a ticket re-sale policy amendments made to the consumer rights bill tabled by Conservative peer, Lord Moynihan.
If you’ve been following along with our blog, you might remember a few of our posts from July of last year regarding the much-debated Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement, Curt Schlesinger et al. v. Ticketmaster. If not, here are links to our previous posts covering this important ticketing concern:
- What You Need to Know About the Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement
- Number Crunching: Who’s the Real Winner in the Ticketmaster.com Class Action Settlement?
We thought that it was about time to check in on the settlement and see how the case is progressing. The final approval hearing was scheduled for January 13, 2015 at the Los Angeles Superior Court; however, Judge Kenneth R. Freeman did not rule on the settlement. As far as we can tell, this was a rather unexpected turn of events as it was expected that this hearing would mark the end of this long and tedious settlement.
