Royal & McPherson Theatres Society (RMTS) operates and maintains the historic Royal Theatre and McPherson Playhouse in Victoria, British Columbia. Together, the venues serve over 200,000 patrons annually, playing an integral role in enriching the culture life of the BC Capital Region community. The RMTS is responsible for all aspects of the two theatres, including administration, concessions, front of house, production, box office and historic building maintenance. These responsibilities including providing an exceptional experience to patrons from the initial ticket search to the closing of the curtain. Having a website that meets all of these needs is imperative.
Move to REST API is the Catalyst for a Whole New Digital Experience

The Why & Why Now
Like many Arts & Cultural organizations utilizing the Tessitura Network, it was time for RMTS to upgrade to the REST API to take advantage of the exciting fully web-based features of Tessitura v16. This was an ideal time to complete updates to the purchase path and build a new site fully utilizing the REST API benefits.
The initial and primary goal of the project was to implement a new and flexible content management system with shared session capabilities with the REST API purchase path integration.
