Unwaged Performances

Unwaged patrons are invited to Belvoir shows, free of charge.

Belvoir’s Community Access Program provides opportunities for audiences to see our work, regardless of economic status, age or geographical location. The program is made up of two key components: an Unwaged Performance Program and a Charitable Tickets Program.

Unwaged Performance Program

Supported by our official airline partner, Virgin Australia

Belvoir’s Unwaged Performance program is now over 20 years old. Through the program we invite unwaged members of the community to attend a free-of-charge matinee performance of most Upstairs productions in our season. A full house of 320 tickets are on offer for each performance and can be claimed on presentation of an eligible Pensioner Card, Health Care Card, Veterans’ Affairs Card, MEAA or Equity Cards along with photo ID.  Seniors and Seniors Health Cards are not valid for these performances.

To claim your complimentary ticket: Visit the Belvoir Box Office at the theatre from 2 hours before the commencement of the designated unwaged performance and present an eligible Pensioner, Health Care Card or Veterans’ Affairs Card along with photo identification. (MEAA and Equity cards are also accepted.) Seniors and Seniors Health Cards are not valid.

    • The box office will be open from 2 hours before every performance, and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. You are welcome to queue outside the theatre prior to the box office opening.
    • Each patron will receive a ticket with a seat number printed on it. This is your allocated seat.
    • Unfortunately we are unable to hold tickets. If you are attending with friends or family and you would like to sit together, you will all need to collect your tickets from the box office at the same time.
    • The show will commence at the times stipulated above, and doors to the theatre will be opened approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the performance.
    • Tickets are subject to availability, so first in best dressed.

The Charitable Tickets Program

The Charitable Tickets Program distributes tickets to community groups and charitable organisations. The tickets are used by charities for fundraising activities or as rewards and incentives for staff and volunteers.
