We run a touring theatre company out of the UK, and as such often have productions that run concurrently over several years. This plugin is an absolute must for theatre companies on a similar model. Everything else we found was either for buildings or bands. This is a very niche plugin but 100% crucial for self-producing theatre companies. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.
I'm happy to have found this plugin - it's just what I've been looking for to showcase productions and performances for small-medium sized arts organizations. It's simple and flexible. I look forward to seeing how it evolves.
I am brand new to web design and programming and until a week ago I'd never heard of a theme or a plugin or a widget! I've been building a new website for my music venue on wordpress using divi (a great theme for newbies!) but when I got to our events page I realised I was going to have to find a plugin. Thank god for the theatre plugin!! I emailed Jeroen to ask him whether he thought it would work to do what I wanted it to do (basically to be able to have an events listing page similar to this: http://www.clubpassim.org/club-passim ). He replied immediately to say that it would work but may require a bit of coding which he could help with. Since then I've managed to get it working almost exactly how I want it! :-) Jeroen has been incredibly helpful and efficient with any issues or questions I've had. I highly recommend this plugin to any venue/promoter and for any one new to wordpress/programming!!
I have searched high and low for a plugin that I can use as a database for film titles and can use to display screening schedule at the same time. Theater for WordPress offers the most flexibility! I feel like this is because the framework is simple, making it easy to mix and match the elements you need. The shortcodes also make it easy to use and customise, particularly when displaying screenings.
I use this plugin for workshops and courses and I must say it's very suitable for this too. I like the way the productions (workshops) and events (scheduled dates you sell tickets for) are organized. I did not see that in any other event plugin. And to top things off, the developer Jeroen is very helpful and responsive and development is going rapidly.
I used this plugin on a theater site for a client. Great support and great plugin. Very easy to use. For both developer and client.
I am using this plugin for one of my client. It is working really well. It is well built with lots of shortcode. It can also be extended by using Advanced Custom Fields to add more fields to your events which is an excellent feature.
This plugin also comes with excellent support. Jerone is very helpful and responsive. He was able to review my issue and provide me with a solution in short time frame. Excellent service!!!
This plugin is very well made. It uses the core elements of WordPress for editing the events.
I like the idea of 1 production, with more events (dates of shows). Better than most eventcalendars that only dulicate the whole content for each same event on another date.
Due to the core elements this plugin can easily be extended with other plugins. I used Duplicate Post (copy productions and events) and Advanced Custom Fields (to add some more fields to the events).
If there's a downside, than it's that the output of the shortcode's comes with some format and not 'clean text'. But Jeroen was very kind and helpfull to solve this issue for my project.
The plugin is in active development that makes it trustworthy for the future.
Hugely useful, very well made.
I used this plugin on an artist site to make a list of shows. It really works nice and easy. It could do with some extra fields though, like address and telephone number of the venue. In case using the plugin for a venue, it could be interesting to have a field that shows the end date (or time) of an event.
But overall I am very happy with the plugin and the support.
