Audience Rewards® is the first and only rewards program created to thank dedicated patrons of the performing arts for their loyalty. The program was created by a coalition of Broadway theatre operators and performing arts centers around America as a free benefit to consumers, allowing them to earn and redeem ShowPoints for unique theater experiences and merchandise and gain inside access to performing arts information, special services and member events.
The official website, www.AudienceRewards.com, serves as an online resource for Broadway, Off-Broadway, National Touring Shows, Opera and other live entertainment events. It features links to authorized ticketing agencies, performance schedules, participating venue information, special offers, point earning partners, event calendars, and lets members check their point balance and browse the performing arts award catalogue.
Audience Rewards is the product of an unprecedented alliance between Broadway’s leading theatre owners and presenters across America. It marks the first-ever marketing alliance between the Nederlander Organization, Shubert Organization and Jujamcyn Theaters, as well as the Independent Presenters Network and Broadway Across America.
