Who needs a ticket?
Adult and Child (3 to 17 years old) tickets are both $12 each. There are no concession/student/family tickets for the show.
Children under the age of 3 do not require a ticket for entry provding there is a valid ticket for other family members in attendance.
Where do I get tickets?
Ticket sales are online and available until sold out, or one day prior to the event. At this stage, there will be no ticket sales at the door.
How do the session times work? What if I miss my session?
Your ticket entitles you to entry during the specified date and time slot (usually one hour). Don’t worry if you arrive at the end of the session, there is no end time to your visit - stay as long as you like. Take note of the end of day closing times as this will need to be considered in the last session of the day. Ticket sessions are marked accordingly.
If you miss your session for some reason see our friendly volunteers on the door and they will sort it out.
Can I leave and come back?
Yes. A pass out option will be available on the same day only (useful if you need to return to your vehicle or head outside for a short period).
