LOCAL SEAT FILLING

OTL (aka On the List) supports the San Francisco arts and entertainment community

Seat Fillers in San Francisco

OTL introduces members to all kinds of fun shows, events, and opportunities. Seat Fillers get out of the house more and treat guests without the worry of individual ticket prices. While those free tickets are great, it's also just fun to see what pops up!

Event Promoters in the Bay Area

San Francisco area event promoters and marketing specialists have a free and private way to fill seats or attract new patrons. Theater tickets are offered more than anything else. However, OTL isn't limited to plays and musicals. Comedy, sports, music, virtual events, fairs and festivals, conferences, movies, escape rooms, golf, classes, anything goes!

How OTL Works

  1. Pick a 2 or 4-seat membership plan
  2. Set up a username and password for the private members-only area
  3. When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the member area
  4. Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show
  5. You and your guest(s) are seated together
  6. Repeat for other shows you want to attend

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in San Francisco?

You no longer have to be in Los Angeles or New York City to be a seat filler, as OTL Seat Fillers has evolved the concept for San Francisco and other locations across the US and in London. Becoming a Bay area seat filler is as easy as registering on OTLSeatFillers.com.

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and a San Francisco seat filler?

Seat Fillers for award shows like the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and BAFTAs are there to do a job. They temporarily fill in empty seats for big-name stars. But local seat fillers are there to enjoy the show. They receive pairs of free tickets by private invitation and are treated just like every other audience member. San Francisco seat fillers don't fill seats for others; they just fill seats.

What types of shows do OTL seat fillers in San Francisco attend?

Bay area seat fillers are invited to a wide variety of local events. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, they've attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do San Francisco seat fillers pay for tickets?

The answer is zero. OTL seat fillers never pay for any tickets. Instead, they pay low (very low!) monthly or quarterly club dues covering up to four complimentary tickets to anything they opt to attend.

What are the benefits of seat filling in San Francisco?

San Francisco seat fillers belong to the most entertaining club around. Not only do they receive free tickets to all kinds of things to do in their hometown, but they get to treat their family and friends, too. While free admission is the biggest benefit, seat fillers love being introduced to new shows and events that pop up out of the blue.

Why do representatives from San Francisco area shows, events, and activities use local seat fillers?

Local seat filling is an effective event marketing tool. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They buy food, beverages, and merchandise, bring guests above and beyond their seat filling privileges, and tend to return to venues they love (even without comp tickets!). Additionally, inviting San Francisco seat fillers is a great way to build a marketing list for future events. It's partnership marketing with proven success.

How do San Francisco Bay area event promoters invite seat fillers?

OTL has an event promoters page with a simple event submission form. New partners submit the form with basic information. OTL then follows up to confirm the process before positing the show in the members-only area. OTL compiles a reservation list for the venue, and seat fillers check-in right before the show.

Thanks for having such a great service!  I have experienced so many cool events and none of which I would have thought to go to without my membership.  You have successfully removed me from my seat at home and placed me in a considerably more entertaining seat!
