Theatre Information

Updated Calendar System

By • Aug 31st, 2011 • Category: ShowBizRadio

Here is a quick note to let you know that we’ve upgraded how we display information in our calendars. Instead of a list, you can now see entire months at a time, and can easily filter out shows. The audition calendar lists all auditions for the next year. The performance calendar lists all productions for the next year, and you can filter by date (through the next year), type of show (All shows, musicals, plays), and shows performed by type of groups (professional, community, children, or high school). And if we’re missing your show’s performance details, send us the info and we’ll get it added. Check the calendars out and let us know what you think.

  1. It would be very helpful if there was a feature to filter out the area where shows and auditions are taking place (whether it be in Northern Virginia, DC, or Maryland). Thank you for all of the updated information on your site!

  2. I am one of many many people who really appreciate all the hard work you and your team puts in to this terrific site. You should be proud. And thanks for trying out new layouts/views.

    I would say that there was something elegant about the old audition view: Having one single page of all auditions coming up in the next few months, as opposed to looking through month by month and scanning individual days.

    This new view could be helpful to some, but would it be possible to perhaps have a separate “classic” view, linking to the old “single page” listing of all shows coming up for auditions? That way, it could be easier for a particular show you’ve been dying to do to just pop out at you without going through all the pages.

    Just my 2 cents. Again, thanks for everything.

  3. Emma, I’ll be working on adding in the location filters to the audition calendars this weekend. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Brendan, Hmmm, let me consider adding an option for the old list view. I really don’t want to have to maintain two different viewing systems the list view and the calendar view. Thanks for bringing up the thought though.
