How many plays do I need to choose?

To create a subscription package, you need to choose three or more plays from our 2017 Season.

How much does a subscription package cost?

The cost of your package depends on the number of plays you choose and the days and times of your performances. You can view a pricing table here.

What sort of concessions/discounts are available?

We offer reduced prices for Pensioners, Seniors, Full Time Students, University of Melbourne staff, and people Under 30 (aged 29 and under). Proof of concession (Pension/Seniors card number, student or staff ID, or proof-of-age) must be provided at the time of booking. Terms and conditions do apply.

When can I book tickets to individual shows?

Tickets to some shows will be available from December this year, with the remainder on sale next year. Popular shows will sell quickly to our Subscribers, so we urge you to secure your seats as soon as possible. Tickets are also much cheaper as part of a package – if you buy them individually later, they’ll cost up to 34% more.

What if the people I’m going with want to see different plays/go on different days?

No problem. MTC packages are extremely flexible – you can book different package sizes, choose different plays, and even choose the same plays but on different days if you need to. And if you need to change your dates later you can – MTC Subscribers have access to ticket exchanges (terms and conditions apply).

Can I choose my seats if I book online?

Unfortunately you can’t select your own seats – but rest assured we’ll choose the best seats available on the dates you’ve requested. The earlier you book, the better your seats will be!

When will I get my tickets?

We will post your tickets out to you once your order has been processed. For current 2016 Subscribers we anticipate that the processing of your subscription will take up to approximately four weeks. If you are a new Subscriber your booking will be processed in order of receipt after 7 October 2016 and may take up to four weeks from this time. If you have questions about you tickets after you complete your booking, you can call us on 8688 0990.

I don’t want to book online – can I download a booking form?

No worries – you can download a form here.

Where can I get a copy of the brochure?

You can view a copy online, or you can have a brochure sent to you by filling in our brochure request form.
