otl Seattle ON-CALL seat filler Memberships

Seattle is an "On-Call" Seat Filler location. There are fewer local opportunities compared to "preferred" locations, so dues are much (much!) lower. But, even after Seattle upgrades to preferred status (after the membership grows and more shows and events are offered), your lower on-call dues will lock in for at least a year.

How It Works

Pick a 2 or 4-seat plan

Register, setting up a username and password for the private VIP-only area

When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the private VIP area

Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show

You and your guest(s) are seated together

Repeat for other shows you want to attend (but please understand that, as a seat fillers club, events won't always be available)

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in Seattle?

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 community-based seat filling, like in Seattle. Becoming a local seat filler is as easy as getting in line on

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

Seat fillers for award shows (Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and BAFTAs) are there to do a job and not focus on the stage. They temporarily fill empty seats for celebrities, moving around from place to place when they get the nod. OTL Seat Fillers might not be sitting amongst the stars, but they're comp ticket VIPs. They receive free pairs of tickets by private invitation from Seattle-Tacoma area venues and are treated just like every other audience member.

What types of shows do Seattle seat fillers attend?

Theatrical performances are some of the most popular but aren't the only options. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, local seat fillers have attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in Seattle pay for tickets?

The answer is zero. OTL seat fillers don't pay for admission, as membership dues cover everything. Dues are less than $6 per month and cover up to three guests. Plus, there's a discounted plan for seniors, military, first responders, and educators.

What are the benefits of Seattle seat-filling?

Seat fillers in Seattle belong to the most entertaining club in the area. Not only do they receive complimentary tickets to all kinds of things to do, but they get to treat their family and friends, too, through two or four-seat seat-filling plans. While free admission is the biggest benefit, OTL members love being introduced to new shows and events and the fun of being surprised by new opportunities.

Why are Seattle seat fillers offered free admission to shows, events, and activities.?

Local seat-filling is a proven event partnership marketing tool for event promoters, managers, marketers, and box office managers. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers provides a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They also 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 Seattle seat fillers is a great way to build a list for future marketing.

How do Seattle promoters and marketers invite seat fillers?

It's quick and easy to partner with OTL Seat Fillers. There's a dedicated event promoters page with an online event submission form on After a new partner submits the form, OTL follows up to confirm. Then the show is posted in the private members-only area so seat fillers can make reservations. OTL compiles a reservation list for the venue and seat fillers check in to pick up tickets right before the show.
