Audience Rewards, a loyalty program run for Broadway ticket purchases, will launch a new Virtual Stage Door program August 31. The initiative will allow theatre fans to redeem ShowPoints earned from eligible Broadway ticket sales for virtual meet-and-greet sessions that include a brief one-on-one chat and a personalized, digital autograph.
The program will launch with Tony nominee Robin de Jesús August 31 at 5:30 PM ET, with sessions featuring Bre Jackson, Keri René Fuller, Samantha Pauly, and Brennyn Lark of Broadway's SIX September 15 at 4:45 ET; and Brittney Johnson and James D. Gish from Broadway's Wicked September 24 at 5:30 PM ET.
"Interactions at the stage door are one of the things that makes Broadway so unique—allowing fans the opportunity to meet their favorite stars," says Audience Rewards Executive Vice President Katie Dalton. "Sadly, COVID has made the traditional stage door experience impossible, and so we’re thrilled to bring back this beloved Broadway tradition in a new and safe way."
The sessions will each accommodate approximately 20 guests, with a moderated Q&A preceding the one-on-one autograph experience. Those interested can redeem ShowPoints for the offerings now at AudienceRewards.com.
