Theatre Template: Front of House Show Report

The Front of House Show Report keeps your house management team tracking performances and keeping the production, box office & marketing team informed on the audience experience. 

Keep your show reports organized with this handy one-pager that when printed double-sided can save paper with four show reports on a page. This Front of House Show Report drills down into exactly what occurred each evening, what important facility updates need documenting, and direct feedback from your patrons.  

Production Phase: Post-Production, Performance

How to use: The House Manager completes a Show Report after every performance and shares it with the production team, including the box office. Production needs to review it to ensure the facility and neighbor experience are kept top-notch. 

If different house managers (whether staff or volunteers) manage different shows they can refer to the former show reports to help anticipate and forecast needs based on notes shared. Very helpful!

What must be included in any Front of House Show Report:

  • Start and end time of the performance
  • Number of attendees
  • Notes on audience experience in the lobby and box office and while being seated
  • Feedback from the audience on the show and frequently asked questions
