Old member's details can be archived and later recalled.
List selection allows users to easily build a list by adding different searches together. Searches can be performed by age range, category, postcode, and gender. Lists can be printed or used to generate mailing labels or emails.
Attendance is recorded session by session. Register sheets are printed for recording at the workshops.
Reports required by funding bodies like the Arts Council are produced:

Reports can be selected on multiple criteria : postcode, date range, production/workshop, how they heard about the theatre.
