Why should I purchase a Backstage Pass?

BACKSTAGE PASS is a unique way to raise funds for the theater of your choice. The first five episodes of the award-winning BACKSTAGE DRAMA web series is provided, free of charge, for your viewing enjoyment. You are then invited to “Support” the project – and the theater of your choice – with the purchase of a BACKSTAGE PASS. Your $10.00 investment will give you SPECIAL access “backstage” – additional web content, exclusive interviews, deleted scenes, and extended music available just for you! And, 50% of your purchase will support the theater of your choice!

Make a purchase because 1) you enjoyed the series and want to see more episodes and/or 2) you want to support your favorite community theater!

How do I get my favorite theater to benefit from Backstage Drama?

Any theater that wishes to participate can become an affiliate member of BACKSTAGE DRAMA. Each participating theater will receive 50% of each sale made as a result of traffic from their respective theater. Sign-up to become an affiliate program takes only minutes. Direct any interested theaters to this link.

What is an affiliate program?

The BACKSTAGE DRAMA affiliate program is managed by Share-A-Sale, a Chicago-based firm founded in 2000 and currently serving more than 2,600 clients. On behalf of Fubble Entertainment/Backstage Drama, Share-A-Sale manages the sale of all subscriptions through PayPal. Share-A-Sale sends a check, based on the percentage of sales by each originating theater. For example if you are with the “Grand River Civic Theater” and sign up to be an affiliate, every time a visitor at your Grand River Civic website clicks through to www.backstagedrama.com using the link on your website, and makes a subscription purchase, your theater will receive a percentage of that sale.

Anyone with a website or blog can be an affiliate with any of the Share-A-Sale accounts.

Currently, BACKSTAGE DRAMA is seeking only community and independent theaters to be affiliates, as this is intended to be a fundraiser for community and independent theaters.
