We were born in the theater

Founded in 2016 by a theater director and student
Now with over 3,000 organizations as customers

Our story

Ludus started as a side project for a director who needed an easier way of selling tickets online. After having a successful show using this new platform, other directors in the area came knocking on the door wanting to use what eventually became Ludus. Ludus is now used by 3,000+  organizations throughout the U.S. including K-12, colleges, community theatres, and performing arts centers of all sizes to manage their ticketing, marketing, fundraising, and streaming.

Our mission

At Ludus, our mission is to build tools that empower everyone involved within the arts to focus on what they do best: sing, dance, play, act, direct, and perform. Whether you’re an actor, instrumentalist, vocalist, director, teacher, box office manager, etc., we are here to help you embrace the arts.

Overall, we believe in the power of the arts and the power of the artist. Communities, students, and the world need the arts to thrive (even if a few cynics say otherwise). It’s up to us to use our resources to ensure the arts remain in our lives for generations to come.
