Terms and Conditions


  • Dress Rehearsal Club joining fee is a one off non-refundable annual fee valid from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2019 regardless of joining date, and benefits are not transferable.
  • The annual joining fee entitles the applicant free entry to all scheduled Dress Rehearsals that proceed.
  • Dress Rehearsal Club is capped at 220 participants per year.
  • Dress Rehearsal Club card must be presented at each Dress Rehearsal to gain entry for the named individual.
  • Replacement of lost cards will attract an administration fee.
  • Seating at Dress Rehearsals is by General Admission and participants are required to sit where directed by theatre staff.
  • Dress Rehearsals may be delayed, interrupted, curtailed or cancelled as necessary. Club participants will be notified by email or SMS in the event of a change or cancellation.
  • In the event a Dress Rehearsal is cancelled, no refunds, compensation or discounted in-season tickets will be offered. The Dress Rehearsal Club is priced on the assumption that up to 4 Dress Rehearsals might be cancelled, but experience has been that it is more like 1 or 2 each year.
  • In the event that more than 4 Dress Rehearsals are cancelled, MTC will offer a replacement ticket in-season for any additional cancelled Dress Rehearsals past that point.
