I am Sam, Sam I am.
I’ve never had a mammogram
I did not have one in a shed
I will not in a trundle bed
I did not have one on my bum
I just ate a biscuit crumb
I think I found it in my hair
How expensive's childcare?

Venue Information

Our venues are currently operating at reduced capacity (75%) with a minimum of one empty seat between groups along a row.

Tickets will mostly be sold in multiples of two, however limited allocations of single tickets and odd numbered groupings of tickets will also be available. Tickets may also be sold in single seat patterns for certain events. At all times, we will do our best to support your needs, but please bear in mind that this will be subject to the restrictions in place at that time.

Please help us to maintain safety by wearing your mask at all times inside the venue, remaining in your allocated seat and facing the stage. Please be aware that guests seated in your row may need to walk past you to get to their seat.

Our foyers will be open 60 minutes pre-show for Joan Sutherland Theatre performances, and two hours pre-show for Western Foyer venue performances. Refreshments will be available for purchase from our theatre bars, and should be consumed while seated in specific foyer spaces to maintain physical distancing. Drinks purchased at our theatre bars can also be taken into venues for most performances. Please note that unless advised otherwise, theatre bars will not be open during intervals. Drinking water is available at all times.
