Does the job really well
By , for WP 4.3.1

Its difficult to find an events plugin which can handle multiple dates which might not be sequential, i.e. Thursday to Saturday and Monday.

This plugin does it really well.

Its easy to use, great functionality and can be set up to work well with your theme.

The support for is great too. I recommend some of the add-ons.

Excellent plug-in for cinema listings
By , for WP 4.3.1

I am building a website for an independent cinema and have found this plug-in to be invaluable - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Jeroen was very quick to respond when I suggested a new extension to enable British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) icons to be displayed - it was up and running in no time. The site is almost done now and I'm really happy with the way the plug-in is working, and I'm confident that when I hand it over to the client they will find it easy to use.

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.

Excellent Events List Plugin
By , for WP 4.2.3

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.

Great plugin for venues!
By , for WP 4.2.2

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!!

Great plugin useable for cinema screenings
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Thumbs up!
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Great plugin and support
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Great product, Fantastic service
By , for WP 4.1.4

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!!!

Good base, lots of customizing options, great service!
By , for WP 4.0.1

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.
