The Theatre Communication Groups’ Free Night of Theatre was originally introduced as a three city pilot-program in 2005, created to increase public awareness of the national theatre community, while in turn attracting new and non-traditional audiences to the theatre. During 2011′s Free Night of Theater over 400 participating organizations offered more than 55,000 tickets to over 1,800 performances in 19 states. Surveys showed more than a third of those patrons returned the following season to buy a ticket at that theater. The South Florida Theatre League’s version of the program began in 2008.
