The Stagedoor app has launched a ‘Patrons Club’, giving members access to a host of benefits and app discounts when normal service resumes.
In response to the closure of London theatres, Stagedoor has also pledged 20 per cent of the funds raised through the Patrons Club to go towards supporting theatre partners in the non-profit sector who are in financial peril as a result of coronavirus.
The Stagedoor app is home to an active community of 50,000 theatre-lovers who use it to organise their theatre-going life, decide what to see and book their tickets. That highly-engaged user base is now rallying to support the platform through this period of uncertainty by signing up to the new Patrons Club, pledging up to £8.99 a month. In return, when theatres re-open, Patrons will receive a host of benefits, including up to 10 per cent off all ticket purchases on the app.
“We’re living in dramatic times, but it has been heart-warming to see so many members of our community show their support for the app that we’ve dedicated the last few years of our lives to building,” said Stagedoor co-founder and CEO, Michael Hadjijoseph. “Our promise to you is to keep building the best possible companion app to theatre and to continue to support quality journalism. Furthermore, we know that many organisations in our industry are in a very precarious position. We’re all in this together, so we’ve decided to donate 20 per cent of the money raised from our Patrons Club to a selection of charitable foundations in the theatre sector.”
