onStage:LA is Southern California’s leading non-profit discount ticket program for the performing arts, where all service fees are re-invested directly back into the arts community.
onStage:LA (www.onstage.la) is the best resource for Greater LA performing arts patrons to find out “What’s Playing?” and “What’s Ovation Recommended?” The platform acts as a comprehensive community calendar, a way for patrons to find discounted tickets to shows and an aggregator of theatre news and reviews.
Each year, more 10,000 tickets to over 500 events are sold through onStage:LA. Patrons can browse both full-priced and discounted ticket offers or subscribe to a weekly email that highlights discounted tickets only. This opt-in email reaches over 15,000 individuals, serving as a valuable advertising tool for arts organizations and a significant money-saver for patrons. (We estimate that the program has saved patrons over $3 million since its inception.)
onStage:LA now accepts listings of theatre productions from throughout the Greater LA region whether the producing organization is a member of LA STAGE Alliance or not! Visit our membership page to find out how to join LA STAGE Alliance or email support to set up your company profile.
onStage:LA was founded in 1996 under the name Times Tix. The program was co-sponsored by the LA Times and began as a physical booth located inside the Beverly Center shopping mall in Beverly Hills. The booth served as a hub for patrons to buy discounted theatre tickets and for LA STAGE member companies to buy signage and other advertising materials for their productions.
On February 17, 2000, the Times Tix went digital and became Web Tix. In 2003, the site was rebranded to LA STAGE Tix. The site was expanded and relaunched as onStage:LA in January 2019.
