Just in time for its 125th birthday, the landmark Auditorium Theatre at Roosevelt University launched their redesigned website powered by TheatreCMS. With a seating capacity of nearly 4,000, this historic theater is one of the largest organizations using the TheatreCMS performing arts plugin for WordPress. Their development team evaluated several calendar and event plug-ins and found them lacking. Only TheatreCMS provided the comprehensive production, venue, and event management the organization needed. With it, they can easily display a calendar of events, sort presentations easily by performing art discipline and directly link to Ticketmaster event pages for sales.
A National Historic Landmark, the Auditorium Theatre is a pearl of the cultural community of Chicago, IL. Patrons enjoy ballet, modern dance, choral concerts, and popular music from across the U.S. and around the world. Like many presenting houses the Auditorium Theatre offers online sales of individual tickets for performances, discounted group tickets and season subscriptions.
The Auditorium Theatre is strongly committed to the community in which it thrives. Outreach activities include events for teachers, families, community events and children’s and family programming. These events not only support the community at large, they also expose young people to the power of the arts. These experiences can create life-long lovers of the arts.
