Storm Z.
Department Chair/Choir Director
Capterra Review

“In terms of actual features that were game changers for our performing arts department: ability to create your own venue map, online reservations and payment, variable priced seating, ability to pass on credit card fees to patrons or to absorb them, dynamic social distancing options, ability to track sales and proceeds easily, fast/accurate payment, and a culture of continuous improvement."

Chris C.
Auditorium Manager
Capterra Review

“One of the main reasons we went with Ludus was customer support. I checked into the company and their reputation before we went with their package and I could not be happier. The Ludus support team is quick to answer questions and solve problems.”

Amy J.
Teacher/Director
Capterra Review

“Exceptional. Customer service is always on top of things and extremely helpful. The team is always working to stay current with the needs of the times we are living in - for example, developing a way to socially distance seats as tickets sell. Overall, I have consistently been impressed with this product, team, and innovation. Not once have I ever thought twice about using Ludus.”

Kristin M.
Kalamazoo, MI
MCC Overbrook Theater

“I am so blown away at the customer service. That kind of support in addition to a free program is hard to come by! This has made a world of difference in making my life easier as the box office manager. So glad to have found you!”

Ashley B.
Portage, MI
Portage Central Theatre

“My experience with Ludus has been top notch. My staff and I have found that it offers much more flexibility and ease of use in comparison to our previous program. Additionally, customer service is fast and friendly.”

Kate V.
Registrar/Office Manager
Mountain Top Music Center

“We had extensive demos from both Ludus and Vendini (now AudienceView), and were impressed with the flexibility and responsiveness of the Ludus system and their willingness to listen to and respond to our questions.”

Trent K.
Theatre Director
Capterra Review

“I have been blown away by the quality of the work. The customer service is out of this world. Most questions are answered within just a few minutes and all of my issues have been handled professionally and expediently.”

Hermantown High School

“It feels as though Ludus has been part of rehearsals and has made sure opening night goes smoothly. They operate the way every company should, by standing behind their product and supporting their customers.”

Kylie S.
Director
Capterra Review

“We are a small rural school district. We can't afford super expensive ticketing systems. Ludus's user experience is unmatched and provides top-notch services for the least amount of monetary investment possible.”

Megan S.
Director
Capterra Review

“AMAZING! The people who helped with all my questions were fabulous, it was SUPER easy to use and set up and sell tickets online. If it wasn't for Ludus, we wouldn't have had a drama season in the spring of '21 because we weren't allowed to sell tickets in person at our school. I would use them again in a heartbeat!”

Ken S.
Odessa, TX
Permian High School

“I know I've said this in the past, but I just have to say it again....Ludus is incredible. Thank you for creating such a user-friendly and professional-looking/operating system. I love it. It's a lot of fun to use!”

Josh H.
Teacher/Director
Capterra Review

“Ludus is an intuitive product that is easy to learn and implement. They are forward thinking and always finding new ways to improve, even in a global pandemic. On top of it all, their customer service is second to none. I would strongly recommend Ludus to any school or arts organization.”
