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 2018 is $10.

For each production, MTC will nominate two specific performances as the Artist Nights. Members will be eligible to purchase a single ticket to one of the designated performances (i.e one ticket to each of the Artist Night productions) 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.
