School Bookings

Introduce students to the magic of live theatre…
There’s nothing quite like the buzz in the auditorium when there’s a show for schools on.

Remember – there is one free teacher ticket with every class.
The number of tickets on reservation can be changed up to 3 weeks prior to the
performance, subject to availability.
Any balance due must be settled 3 weeks prior to the performance.
If you have children with special needs in your group, please let our Box Office staff know at time of booking so we can allocate the appropriate number of free teacher and carer places where necessary.


Don’t miss part of the show! Make sure you double check the performance start time as latecomers may not be admitted until an appropriate break in the performance. On some occasions the performing company may specify that no latecomers will be accommodated at all so please be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before start time to avoid disappointment.
