Financial accessibility

We are committed to making theatre accessible to as many people in our community as possible, which includes financial accessibility, and so we have launched two new ticketing initiatives. Both these options are available at the Box Office, online or by phone.

Pay What You Can – tickets for the second Wednesday of each season will go on sale at the start of the run, priced from $3 – $100. These are aimed at people who would like to experience live theatre but struggle to fit it into their day-to-day budgets. It also provides for those who can to pay more than a regular ticket price – an on the spot donation to the Fortune.

Pay it Forward – when you’re buying tickets online, you’ll notice an option at the bottom of the page to buy a ‘Pay It Forward’ ticket. These tickets will be donated to a community group that works with people on low incomes.
