The main doors and box office open 90 mins prior to the start of each performance.
Due to the nature of live performance, trying to find your way to your seat once a show has started can disrupt both the audience and the performers on stage. Therefore, most performances have a lockout period which restricts anybody from entering the auditorium until a suitable break in the performance.
Packaged foods and cold drinks purchased at any of our theatre bars can be taken into the auditorium during the performance.
Hot drinks, glass and unpackaged foods will not be admitted into the auditorium.
No, unfortunately not. Therefore we recommend that patrons do not bring bags larger than a regular sized handbag or small backpack to the theatre.
We have a small number of accessible seating available in the stalls - to book, please call the Box Office on 03 9650 1500
Please note there is no elevator access to the Dress Circle & Upper Circle
