As a subscriber to Season 2019 you will have ongoing entitlement to book your same seats in the same series in the State Theatre and Playhouse for future seasons, as long as you continue to subscribe on an annual basis. 



Subscribers may book additional tickets for individual shows of their choice at the time of subscribing. Every effort will be made to allocate these additional tickets as close as possible to your subscription seats. If renewing or booking your subscription online, the best available additional tickets will be added to your order. 

General Public may book individual show tickets from Monday 8 April. All seats to all shows are available for purchase through Arts Centre Melbourne or Ticketmaster from Monday 8 April. 


We accept Age Pension, Seniors Card and Full-time Student concessions. 

Concessions must be Australian Issued and valid at the time of booking. Full or partial refunds are not available if you become eligible for a concession after you have booked. Proof of concession may be required to gain access to the venue if being admitted on a concession ticket. Failure to provide valid proof will result in an upgrade fee on that ticket. 

Please note concession prices apply only to single ticket sales as Subscription prices are already discounted.
