Can you give us a review?review
Center Stage Software is listed on  Capterra, a reference website that helps businesses and nonprofits find software that helps them improve, grow and succeed.   
A couple of years ago, several of our clients kindly posted reviews of our software and services on the Capterra website. And though we still greatly appreciate the great reviews, having new reviews will dramatically freshen our listing and bring it up-to-date.
We would be very grateful if you could please take a couple of minutes to rank us and/or write a brief review. Thank you!
Here is a link to our Center Stage Software listing. You can read others' reviews, and click on the turquoise button to write your own.

Here's a word from Head Programmer Bruce Rowe: 

"I got a message from Google. They said they had prevented my  account from being accessed. I thought that was strange - especially  since the attempted access was from Texas. I changed my password and  thought no more of it.

"This morning though, there was a link to Bruce Schneier's site (which I consider reliable) about this kind of thing. The attack is a variation of phishing. What makes it different is that it is a clever variation."

"Read what it says. 
We can expect to see more of this in the future."
Tips on using the Center Stage Software Help Deskhelpdesk

All of us here at Center Stage Software use the Help Desk a lot. We add things, edit things, and look things up. The Help Desk is an accumulation of years worth of knowledge, experience, and instruction we all depend on.

We still rely on old habits in the way we use it sometimes, so we thought we'd remind ourselves (and YOU!) about some of the useful ways of finding information and navigating the site. 

In fact, we just wrote a Help Desk post about using the Help Desk.  Keep calm and read the post! 
Do you have Center Stage Software's websitebookmark bookmarked?

We've changed it from  http://centerstage.com/ 

Please take a look at your bookmark if you have one and make the correction. 

(This is also an excellent excuse to check out our beautiful new website!)

Adding an "s" may seem like a small change but it ensures you are on a safe site where your data is encrypted.

Do you use Webtix?
By now you are probably sick of hearing us remind you to make sure your Buy Tickets button is https, not  http. Thank you if you've made that change! If you haven't and need help, contact support@centerstage.com
