New: Sustainable Ticket Initiative!

We recently realized the tremendous waste of paper generated by our routine printing of disposable one-use-only physical tickets on card stock for each performance of each production at Willamette Theatre. Typically we have been printing something in excess of 5,500 tickets on average per season. Each of those tickets – if used at all – was then ripped in half, then recycled. We began feeling uncomfortable about the irresponsibility of that system, so the box office staff was tasked with exploring ways that we could make the process more environmentally friendly. The idea they came up with was to print tickets, have them laminated, and reuse them throughout the entire season, and beyond. The staff generated policies and procedures for taking reservations, finalizing ticket counts, and handling related administrative requirements.

For our patrons, the new process will be different in a few small ways: Tickets will no longer be available at the box office until the day of each performance, then each ticket-holder will return the ticket to the ushers upon entering the performance space. We are striving to make the new process as seamless as possible, but we do appreciate your support and understanding as we institute this important and earth-friendly change.
