Lafayette, LA – Tickets for events at the Heymann Performing Arts Center are now available through a new ticket vendor, Tixly. Tickets can be purchased online at www.HeymannCenter.com or at the Heymann Performing Art Center’s physical box office located at 1373 S College Road. Tickets are no longer being offered through Ticketmaster.
“We are excited to be the first in the U.S. to partner with Tixly to provide elite ticketing services to Acadiana. Tixly shares our vision of elevating the guest experience by enriching customers’ journeys through innovative technology and modernizing the ticketing process. This partnership offers customers added levels of convenience and optionality, allowing them to buy tickets in a way that saves time and reduces the need for paper ticketing,” said Brian McGrath, Heymann Center’s Arts & Culture Manager.
With this new ticketing system, convenience fees associated with online tickets will be noticeably less expensive. Customers will be able to see the view of the stage from seats prior to buying tickets online. Customers will also have the option to create accounts, track purchases, handle subscriptions, make donations, purchase show merchandise or VIP experiences, and choose between digital or printed tickets. All transactions will be local, dependable and secure.
“Tixly offers a great alternative to other systems. We were impressed by the Tixly platform’s ease of use for both employees and customers alike by providing powerful features at a great value. We found that Tixly offered our venue much more control over branding, sale parameters, and revenue streams,” said Dennis Skerrett, Heymann Center’s Venue Administrator.
“When we began researching ticketing companies, we wanted one that was user-friendly for our patrons, simple to learn for our staff, and one that offered quick and genuine support. Tixly is that and so much more! Tixly’s hands-on support team and easy-to-use system guarantees the best experience for Heymann Performing Arts Center’s loyal patrons, said India Roberts, Heymann Center’s Box Office Coordinator.
The transition to the Tixly system will be seamless for the Heymann Center’s guests who have already purchased tickets for spring events. Guests will be able to use the tickets they bought before the ticketing system switch as well as tickets purchased after the switch to gain admittance with no additional steps.
