OffOff@$9 Info for Producers

Learn How TDF Can Help You Fill Your Venue
In order to help build a stronger connection between adventurous theatremakers and their equally adventurous patrons, TDF developed OffOff@$9, which offers theatre, dance and music performed on small stages and nontraditional spaces all over the city—for only $9.

We realize that sometimes filling a theatrical venue can be a little challenging, especially when you’re producing new and exciting work. TDF's OffOff@$9 Program can help producers and presenters gain revenue while bringing new audiences to Off-Off Broadway by offering discounted tickets to TDF’s 90,000 members. OffOff@$9 was specifically designed to encourage attendance at both AEA and non-AEA showcases as well as smaller dance venues. In the first two years, TDF generated nearly 41,000 admissions for participating Off-Off Broadway companies.

Due to the success of OffOff@$9, we’re honored to be awarded the 2012 Ellen Stewart Award by the Innovative Theatre Awards for demonstrating a significant contribution to the Off-Off Broadway community through service, support, and leadership.

Who Can Participate

OffOff@$9 is open to any fully produced, scripted theatre production (AEA Showcase Code or non-AEA), along with dance and music events, whose full- price ticket has a face value of $10-$20. The OffOff@$9 Program is not intended for staged readings.

How It Works

TDF charges members $9 per ticket for all productions in the OffOff@$9 Program and pays the production $9 for each ticket purchased. TDF pays each box office weekly. Checks are mailed on each Monday following a week of performances.

As a producer, you can submit theatre and dance productions online; add dates, times, and allocations and view sales 24/7.
