About the client

Drammen Scener is a company for the two venues Drammens Teater og Union Scene. From the renowned historic building Drammens Teater to the rustic and modernised factory premises at Union, over 400 events are held annually.

The theatre was first built in 1870 and has since been Drammen's great pride and one of the finest theatre venues in Norway. Despite the fire that destroyed the entire theatre building in 1993, the Theatre appeared in its same original form again four years later. The building has won awards for its architecture and has always been a success among Drammen residents.

On the other side of the river in Drammen is Union Scene, which was formerly a paper mill. In the mid-2000s, local authorities decided that the building would become a cultural venue. A venue that has subsequently provided many good concert experiences for the public and which can have a capacity up to 1250.

The main hall in Drammen: Hovedscenen with 450 seats - a beautiful detailed design.

Our main challenges can be a bit ad-hoc. Whether it's social distances, hall changes, specific organizers requests. Fortunately, TIX is so flexible that it is quick to figure out the solutions. My favorite feature before we started using Yesplan was copying and bulk editing. Now that has become more basic. Tix's support is always nice and accommodating. They try to find the best possible solutions to all the weird questions we have. We are very happy with the social distancing-dance, where TIX quickly turned around at the requests of several customer and made good solutions. I love TIX – continue the excellent development of the system and I will forever be a big fan!
