1 Objective 2: Ticket Usage 16

2 u Most people participating in the survey used their tickets personally and a few gave them away. Less than one in ten did not use the tickets at all. While this latter information was originally intended to project no show rate, it is likely that no- shows just werent motivated to complete the survey (based on data reported in the field, no show rates were significantly higher). –The majority of respondents personally used the tickets they reserved (86%) or gave the tickets to someone else to use (6%) (see Figure 1). –Less than one in ten (8%) respondents did not use their tickets, likely way below the true no show rate. u Among participants who did not personally use their tickets, most had something else come up on the day of the performance (see Figure 2): –Had a conflict on the day of the performance/too busy (58%) –Could not attend due to illness on the day of the performance (18%) –Reserved the tickets to give to someone else (7%), had transportation problems (6%), forgot to go (3%), simply didnt feel like going (2%), reserved tickets for more than one show and went to another one (1%) or the play subsequently got poor reviews (1%) –Wanted to attend but were unable to do so because the show date was changed/cancelled or overbooked (4%) u Reserving online was the dominant form of reserving tickets. –Ninety-one percent of participants reserved online with small numbers making reservations at a theatre box office (3%) or in person at a special event (3%) (see Figure 3). Ticket Usage 17

3 u Nearly half of attenders were NOT able to get tickets for their first choice of play. –Overall, 53 percent did get into their first choice of performance while 47 percent did not (see Figure 4). –The number getting their first choice varied from 38 percent in Cleveland to 90 percent in Maine. u Word of mouth was important in making people aware of Free Night of Theater, but online and print media also played an important role. –Over one-third of participants (37%) learned of Free Night of Theater from friends or colleagues. Over a quarter mentioned learning of it by (29%) and almost a quarter through websites (23%). Other media used included major newspapers (11%), alternative newspapers (10%), social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter or blogs (3%), radio (3%) and posters placed around town (2%).
