Ask Agaric: Theater ticketing system help


My name is Sam, and I just come across your NYPHP 2005 posting asking for an online ticketing system advice for a small theater. I'm in the same boat as you, and would appreciate if you could point me in a good direction. [...] this is for a local theater that the city recently purchased, restored, and is seeking to use as a community asset. A solid, low-cost/no-cost, online ticketing system is the next step of this process.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.


Hello Sam,

I would still love to make an open source ticketing system and more --

But it would take getting probably 30 small arts organizations together to pay for it.

My research turned up as the best online service.

My own arts organization that got me looking in this direction uses some horrid proprietary stuff that I could look up / ask about for you.

Unrelated, some simpler software that Amazing Things Arts Center does use is some online auction software based on the Drupal content management system, which I update every year, is very effective at fundraising, and I would love to have more groups using it and throwing a little something in the development fund.

Good luck and do let me know if you think you can help get together a bunch of folks to sponsor an open source solution, because I don't consider there no be a really robust, solid, low-cost/no-cost, online ticketing system out there yet!




an open source ticketing software

There seems to be a free system called Fusion Ticket. It's over at

It is a continuation of the project


As of October 19, 2009, it looks like they are in active development.
