How can I book tickets?

What if I purchase tickets and then can't attend the performance on the date I selected?

For Auckland Theatre Company subscribers

Outside of COVID-19 related reasons, exchanging tickets is an exclusive benefit available only to Auckland Theatre Company subscribers. This is a complimentary no-reason-required ticket exchange service. All we ask is that you return your ticket to us at least 48 hours in advance of the original performance and nominate your preferred new performance date for that play. This service is not available for tickets not bought as part of a subscription.

If you’re not an Auckland Theatre Company subscriber

All tickets purchased are non-transferable and non-refundable. 

Please note:
Terms and conditions apply if you are exchanging tickets from a preview performance or out of an ATC Theatre Club booking. Ticket exchanges can only be made once Auckland Theatre Company’s box office staff have received your original tickets or proof that your tickets have been destroyed. Prior to this, no exchange will be processed nor seats reserved. Tickets can be exchanged to any other available performance within the same season of the same show. Tickets cannot be exchanged from one show to another or from one season to another.

When returning tickets, please send them to:

  • Post: ATC Box Office, PO Box 96002, Balmoral, Auckland 1342.
  • Courier: ASB Waterfront Theatre, 138 Halsey Street, Auckland, 1010.
  • Email: scan/photograph and send to: [email protected]

Please be sure to enclose your postal address, new preferred performance date and time and contact number. You can also visit the ASB Waterfront Theatre, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm. We can process the exchange while you wait.

What if I lose my tickets?

In most cases, tickets can be replaced free of charge. Call us on 0800 ATC TIX (282 849) and we’ll make sure replacement tickets are waiting for you at box office.

Concession price

Concession tickets are available for people who are 30 years old or younger, Community Services Card holders, full-time students and members of recognised entertainment organisations.

What are preview performances?
Preview performances are the first performances of a season and are a chance for final tweaks to be made before opening night. They are likened to a public dress rehearsals – and tickets are priced at a lower rate.

What is dynamic pricing?
Just like airlines, Auckland Theatre Company ticket prices start low and rise as the performance becomes busier. Prices will fluctuate as demand increases. We recommend booking early - at least three weeks before each show's opening night - to get the best price.

If we didn't answer a question here, please give us a call on 0800 ATC TIX (0800 282 849) or see our Terms and Conditions.
