Does your theatre group need more bums on seats, actors or backstagers?Freshen up your website for your audience and members
Super Easy to Edit with WordPress
We build your website with a superbly supported content management system called WordPress used by millions, including well known brands.
It’s super easy for anyone to use themselves. Write articles, sell products, share galleries… with a large number of add-ons to extend the features to match your dreams.
WordPress is free. You only have costs for additional features required (plugins) which typically cost under £50/year.
As you can see below, WordPress is used by the majority of websites.
The first most important feature for every amdram group! Share your shows, concerts, read throughs, auditions and social get togethers. Visitors to your website want to see what’s on, when, where (with Google maps).
Then sell your tickets via TicketSource.
Manage your Mailing Lists with Mailchimp
If you use mailchimp to inform your members and audiences what’s going on, we can easily integrate with that. You can sign up members to a different list to audience subcribers.
Include videos of your productions as teasers
Linking to videos on YouTube will bring you audience from those searching there and as importantly, save you hosting costs because streaming video uses a lot of data.
You can have single videos or a slider of videos. This is a great way to keep people engaged.
Don’t Forget to Share your Social Links
Give your amdram members their own confidential area. They can either have individual passwords or one for the group. Put info up about rehearsals, social events and meetings. You can upload videos and photos that only your membership can see.
You can even collect membership fees with your website.
Spread the Word with Social
The more people are engaged with what your group is doing, the more they will share your news and info about upcoming shows.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many of these features above do you want?
The cost of building your new website depends upon how many features we need to build. If it’s not already in WordPress, the first stage is migrating content into this easy to use content management system.
Do you want us to edit content or you?
Often, updating an amdram wordpress website means gathering and editing lots of photos and labelling them. Writing fresh articles and news about shows current, past and future. The more of this you do, the cheaper the website build cost and ongoing maintenance will be.
Your amateur dramatic or society website typically takes between 10 and 25 hrs (£600-1600) to create/update, depending on your answers to the frequently asked questions. So you should budget £1600. We work on a prepaid time banked basis. In other words, you buy packs of time from DADD or 50% of the quote we give you for your final list of requirements. These website design and support packs are available from our shop below. Alternatively, we can invoice your group instead.
Once your website is built we will train you on how to edit and update it. We offer a complete monthly maintenance package if you want help after, or you can simply buy more time from us as and when.
