Ticketing FAQs


All of our shows are picnic style seating. Please feel free to bring your own picnic blanket or chairs as well as your own food and drink. Please note that for Family Shows they tend to move to different locations throughout the performance.

Chairs and Picnic Blankets

Seating-wise, any chairs that are over 15cm from the ground are asked to be seated to the rear of the seating area to allow for easy viewing for low chairs and people on picnic blankets. A team member will be available to assist in your seating location.

Standard and low chair hire is also available onsite for $5 for all Shakespeare Under The Stars performances. No pre-booking possible and there are limited numbers.

Food and Drink

Please feel free to bring any food and drink you would like for the performances.

You can order food onsite up to an hour prior to the start of the show from the onsite bar, located behind the box office. Onsite food ordering is subject to availability and may not be available at all performances. To view the food menu, click here.
