MTC’s Artist Night program is a membership program, open to a specific group (refer to ‘Who is eligible?’ below).
The membership period follows MTC’s annual Main Season (typically a calendar year).
Cost of membership for 2017 is $10.
For each Mainstage production, MTC will nominate a specific performance as the Artist Night. Members will be eligible to purchase a single ticket to this performance for $29 in A-Reserve or B-Reserve (subject to availability). Should demand for a nominated performance exceed expectation, MTC may offer an overflow performance at its sole discretion.
The Artist Night ticket will be available for purchase at the box office or online (the account the membership was purchased with must be used to be recognised for this price). Online booking fees will be waived where the only ticket being purchased in the order relates to this program.
Tickets are not available for exchange or refund except in accordance with the LPA ticketing code of practice.
