Below are some commonly asked questions about membership benefits
in the South Florida Theatre League and how you can take advantage of them.
The South Florida Theatre League has multiple blasts that are aimed at different audiences — from patrons to artists. Below is the rundown of the ongoing ones and their various deadlines.
OnStage Now Monthly Email Blast – this blast goes out to a list of over 5,000 theatre patrons on the 1st of every month. To be included, you need to email Andie Arthur a jpg with your show information at firstname.lastname@example.org. These are calendar listings, so we’re not including detailed show information. Square images work best. We only post shows that will be happening that month.
The deadline to be included is the 15th of the month before. For example, to be in the January blast, you’d need to email me by December 15th. A proof blast goes out on the 20th directly to producers for anyone to make changes by the 25th of the month.
If your show is in person, you need to have a space on your website listing COVID-19 safety protocols that we can link to directly. If you don’t have that, we will not be listing your event. This will be enforced until the board decides to lift the restriction.
In the Classroom Monthly Email Blast – This is a similar idea to the OnStage Now Blast, but specifically focused on classes for children and teenagers. A lot of parents are also theatre patrons, and this is a way for our member organizations to market their educational offerings to those parents. It’s not aimed at classes for theatre professionals. (See below Weekly Email Update for that.) Again, please email a jpg to Andie Arthur at email@example.com.
The deadline to be included is the 1st of the month that the blast will go out. A proof will go out on the 5th of the month, and corrections can be submitted until the 10th of the month. The blast itself goes out on the 15th of the month.
If your class is in person, you need to have a space on your website listing COVID-19 safety protocols that we can link to directly. If you don’t have that, we will not be listing your event. This will be enforced until the board decides to lift the restriction.
Weekly Email Updates — this blast goes out to 450 industry members. This is where you post auditions, show discounts, etc. It goes out every Wednesday and the deadline to be included is the Wednesday it goes out by 3:00 PM. Unlike the other two blasts, this is a text-based blast. Please submit your calendar listings as you’d like them to be posted to Andie Arthur at firstname.lastname@example.org. As with the above blasts, any event that is happening in person needs to have COVID-19 safety information included, particularly artist based information for any auditions.
Ala Carte Blasts – We also have individualized blasts. These blasts will only be focused on what you’d like them to be focused on and they are $50 each. We only offer this once a week and they’re on a first come, first served basis. They are designed with your involvement in the process and may take up to 2 business days to complete. The COVID-19 requirements for any in person event still apply.
