Marketing is the unsung part of theatre. While the glamour and applause go to the cast and crew of a play, selling the play generally starts a month earlier. The bigger the volunteer army you can unleash to market and talk up your play the better. It is much easier to market a big cast show like a musical than it is a one man show. The math is obvious. Many people have more friends than one person. Actors cast in plays for the first time will generally bring more people to the show than will seasoned vets. Stick a six year old in a play and every relative from miles around will come to the show. For the intents of this write up there is paid marketing (advertising) and unpaid marketing (promotions).
As the old adage goes;
you need to put bums in the seats.
