What makes Curtain Call unique is its unprecedented access to the wings and backstage areas of West End theatres during performances. Its growing collection of exclusive photography, audio and interviews from cast and technical crew provide a vivid insight into the world of theatre. Our brief was to create a theatre database to showcase both this photography and the profiles of people working in theatre.
On the Curtain Call website, theatre folk can create individual profiles, agents can manage talent and producers can promote shows. Cast, crew, creatives and musicians can search, get found and message other members – and theatre fans can fill their boots with stunning images and media not available anywhere else.
We developed a bespoke October CMS that allows the client to add this exclusive content, protected by a PayPal subscription payment gateway plus an eCommerce store for purchasing the inaugural 408 page hardback Curtain Call annual.
A PHP website with bespoke Content Management System and admin management console. eCommerce store, subscription membership payment and user dashboard.
"We’ve been working with Drum since the idea for Curtain Call was conceived. They have been integral to the success and functionality of our website, as well as the design. Having been quite specific in our needs and plans for what we wanted to achieve, they have listened to us every step of the way and ensured that we moved forward in a truly collaborative nature. They are eager to please as well as having clear ideas as to what will work and look best - their intuition and insight have helped us create a site that is truly groundbreaking."
