San Diego Performing Arts League Members are organizations, presenters, or production companies involved in presenting live theatre, music, or dance performances in San Diego County.
Members have access to all SDPAL services and programs, have full voting rights and are entitled to the following benefits:
ArtsTix Ticket Service
During 2016, over 8,200 tickets to performances and events throughout San Diego County were sold through ArtsTix, and presenters that offered tickets through ArtsTix earned $145,000 in remittances. SDPAL members never pay set-up fees when offering tickets through ArtsTix.
No Cost Marketing
When you offer tickets through ArtsTix, we will feature your event on the ArtsTix website home page and automatically promote your event to our 17,000-plus subscribers. ArtsTix E-blasts go out three times per week to people who have told us that they are specifically interested in the types of shows you offer.
We will feature your shows on the ArtsTix digital monitor in a highly visible public location, and on our Facebook page at no cost to you. Additionally, we offer advertising opportunities ($150/month or $50/week) which give members a greater chance to reach new customers.
Free dedicated E-blast
At no cost to you, we will create and send one dedicated e-mail on behalf of your organization to the entire Arts Tix e-mail list (more than 17,000 subscribers). We regularly charge $150.00 for this service! You can promote whatever show, event, or activity you choose, including fund-raising appeals.
San Diego Theatre Week
San Diego Theatre Week is an exciting new program of the San Diego Performing Arts League.The mission of San Diego Theatre Week is to highlight the variety and enhance the awareness of San Diego's diverse performing arts community.
There is a reduced fee for SD PAL members to participate in San Diego Theatre Week. The 3rd Annual San Diego Theatre Week will take place February 15 - 25, 2018.
SDPAL members can display their handouts and brochures at the new ArtsTix Ticket Center, across from the Balboa Theatre in Horton Plaza Park. In addition, we will display your posters and marketing materials at our booth at the annual Mission Federal ArtWalk every April.
This beloved event lets your organization honor your volunteers with a gala evening that celebrates their contributions and the essential role that volunteers play in the performing arts community. SDPAL members receive discount tickets for their organization and complementary tickets for their Honorees. The 25th Star Awards will take place in March or April 2018.
