This is a bespoke SMS text message voting system for Eurobeat: Almost Eurovision, it's available for amateur productions.
There's a new Eurobeat in town!
We're off to Moldova for a whole new contest - Starring Lee Latchford-Evans and Rula Lenska, Eurobeat returned to the professional stage in Edinburgh for 2016.
I'm proud to have provided the SMS voting at this event, raising money for Dickens' Legacy and Waverley Care.
Eurobeat: Almost Eurovision is an interactive musical theatre experience unlike any other that celebrates everything we love (to love) about Eurovision. Audience members participate in a real life vote by text message.
You can use the exact same system as the professional production of Eurobeat: Almost Eurovision for your own SMS text voting. This service is dedicated to, and designed for, this one show providing professional visuals for your performance and immediate feedback backstage of what points each international representative needs to award.
Votes are counted instantly, so you can give the cast a sneak peak backstage of who's winning if you want, and reports are produced of each night's voting ready to be given to the cast to read.
It's up to you whether you want to let your audience vote more than once, it's all a bit of fun, and our voting system has been used smoothly with up to 2,700 votes being received in a window only of only a few minutes (imagine counting them by hand!)
We even provide a means of calling a random audience member (the script calls for this, honest!) without the cast or company knowing their phone number (your audience's mobile numbers remain private at all times)
You can text your audience members after the show, or in advance of your next production, to obtain feedback or promote upcoming events or future productions by your company.
Our SMS Voting solution has been well received by many amateur productions of Eurobeat: Almost Eurovision including; Studio32 Theatre, KBCS, The Apollo Players and Harlequin: Eastwood Theatre For Youth and is currently being used by Eurobeat: Moldova
This is a hosted service, it doesn't require any hardware to be installed at your venue. You retrieve the results using a web-connected device (this could be a laptop computer or even the ASM's smartphone). If you want to use the pre-made slides for your results then you will need a computer to project these. I would recommend one of the following (in order of preference);
If you're using the fantastic QLab from Figure53 for the rest of your show then you can easily integrate your voting results with your existing cue stack.
