Please arrive at the Box Office at least 30 minutes before the start of the performance to collect your theatre tickets.

Swearing, nudity & other bits
Some of our productions at Belvoir may contain strong language, smoking, nudity, violence, strobe lighting, haze or other things you may find confronting or uncomfortable. If you are concerned about any of these please ask our Box Office staff about content when booking.
A Belvoir subscription or single tickets gift voucher is a lovely gift idea – any of our packages will warm the heart of your loved ones! A 30-Down subscription is a really great way to give a young person the life-changing experience of regularly attending live theatre. Buy gift vouchers online or give our Box Office staff a call on 02 9699 3444.

Standing Room and Waitlist
For every performance that is sold out we make limited standing room tickets available. Standing room ticketholders must stand for the duration of the performance, in a location to be determined by the Front of House staff. Standing room tickets may only be purchased over the phone or in person. Standing Room tickets are not transferrable to seats, however these ticket holders are welcome to join the waitlist for seats on the day of the performance (see below), and if successful in being offered a seat, must pay the difference in the ticket price.
Waitlist for seats
For sold out performances we also operate a waitlist for seats. The waitlist is available at the theatre one hour before the performance is due to commence. Please note the waitlist is only available in person, and we cannot guarantee availability. We welcome patrons who have already purchased a Standing Room ticket to join the waitlist for seats at the theatre.
