Are you a theatre professional looking to connect with the public and promote the play you are working on? There is a new app for that called Upstage. It’s an app specifically designed for theatre professionals and it needs your help on Kickstarter.

Visit their Kickstarter page today for more information:

Who are theatre professionals you might ask? Theatre professionals include theatre companies, actors, production teams, stage crew, playwrites, and even the venue itself. Theatre professionals include Upstage has set a goal of $5,000 in order to develop and go live with this app.

This is such a great idea!

Here is what the app looks like so far:

Add a play, catalog of plays, personnel, calendar, submissions, auditions, rehearsals, and search.

The app essentially lets multiple artists collaborate in real time via the UpStage platform to create and present live theatrical performances.

Industry Features Include:

You can search for plays one wants to produce, if the desired play is not found the theatre company can request submissions from playwrights, search jobs, search for auditions, create and send rehearsal notes, search for venues once you have show. Once you have done all this now you can promote the show and find an audience within 50 miles of your phone. Your actors, production team, and stage crew no longer have to update their resume that they were in your show. Upstage keeps a IMDB record of their work history.

Features For Average Customer:

You’ll get a preview of the play, who’s in the play, rating, playbill, driving directions, call the box office, buy a ticket, leave a review, and see how others review the play.

Any Kickstarter Bonuses?

Yes, there are several for this campaign. $1 gets you honorable mention, $50 gets you an account on UPstage for one year as a playwrite, actor, or production staff. $100 gets you all of the previous plus honorable mention on their website and mention on playbill. $200 gets you a full feature account for one year. The bonuses go all the way up to $5,000. This pledge gets you entry into Upstage introductory rates for the next 7 years, listing on the web site, listing on the playbill at annual festival in Chicago, listed in credits of their TV show, and they will create TV episodes for your plays for two years which air on cable access.


As a consumer I could definitely see myself checking this app regularly. I’m actually going to see West Side Story next month, but it would be nice to see additional plays at smaller theaters. Whenever I’ve seen a play in the past I usually search the largest theaters in my city or Ticketmaster directly. Since this app will allow more theater productions to happen me as a customer will be able to see a greater number of plays.

Upstage began development back in 2003 by programmer Douglas Bagnall and is still one of a kind. It’s the only platform that is all things theatre under one roof. The Upstage team have worked on this project for the past six years to perfect it and get it ready for this Kickstarter moment. Upstage is expected to arrive October 2019. Consider supporting their Kickstart campaign today. They have already created the product so there is no risk of not receiving delivery.
