Client Case Study:
Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center was formed in 2002 with the goal of restoring the 100-year-old Mahaiwe Theater. Over the course of three years, the theater was transformed into a dynamic venue with impeccable acoustics and a strong sense of community.
When the Center approached Cedar Mountain Software to redesign their website, we made it our goal to capture the passion and excitement found at every Mahaiwe performance. We also wanted the site to be flexible so that the Center could create and edit content with ease.
Using our FullEdit tool, we created a vibrant, visually driven template with visual nods to the historic theater. As a nonprofit organization, it was vital for Mahaiwe's site to have information for potential donors, tourists, and members of the local community. We put the most important information front and center so that visitors can donate, buy tickets, and view upcoming events right from the home page.
Next, we created a fully customizable, easy-to-edit events calendar that gives visitors information at a glance. The calendar also gives visitors a chance to dive deeper and learn more about their favorite performers. We built a custom window that allows visitors to watch embedded videos without leaving Mahaiwe's site, and made it possible to add slideshows and pictures to every menu bar. This makes for a clean website with a powerful back end.
Finally, our programmers made the website dynamic, reliable, and easy to read on handheld devices. We added Google Analytics to track where visitors are coming from, and made sure that SEO was included in every step. This valuable resource for the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center went live in July 2013 with a rousing applause and much positive feedback.
