Since BroadwayWorld launched Stage Mag two years ago, thousands of theaters around the world have enjoyed the convenience of creating modern, fully interactive show programs for all types of productions. With Stage Mag, you're in control to create your very own show program, complete with traditional features like cover art, cast and creative team details, as well as cutting-edge extras that you'll find nowhere else!

Our free program builder can add photos, videos, interactive advertisements with their own ad pages, sell merchandise, collect email addresses, customize the design, and promote the show with a QR code. Just one smartphone click on a code included on lobby signs, printed slips, web site, or stream will instantly open the new interactive digital program. It's the full-on 21st century digital mobile first program experience the theatre world has been clamoring for.

How can I share my Stage Mag?

Every Stage Mag can be shared in three ways. You get a free QR code which can be printed on a lobby sign, included on a paper or embedded on a stream. You also get a link to your Stage Mag that can be shared to ticket purchasers (or publicly to help sell tickets). Lastly, each Stage Mag comes with a 5 digit 'short code' for easy sharing.

Looking for a classic program? Print-friendly full color PDF output is available for quick and easy printing at any local printer, further supporting small businesses in theatre communities.

Audiences will appreciate convenient features like 'Theater Mode' which puts your Stage Mag into dark mode for situations where the bright screen can be a distraction, such as a dark theater, and ability to adjust font size for optimum viewing. Plus, make sure your interactive program is accessible for all audience members by turning on accessibility options to make it even easier to view!
