ATC Season Pass

Enjoy a full year of theatre by taking out an ATC Season Pass to all subscription season shows. Not only will you save up to $102 on the price of Standard 'A Reserve' tickets, but also you can book for any performance and avoid paying any difference in price if you need to exchange tickets during the season.


ATC Theatre Club

ATC Theatre Club offers an unbeatable price of $305 per person for subscribers who come to all six subscription shows, as a group of six or more on the same night. That's a huge saving of up to $142 on public 'A Reserve' tickets for a full year of theatre.


ATC Snap a Seat

SOLD OUT. For just $150, you can become an Auckland Theatre Company subscriber and see all five subscription shows in 2017. ATC Snap a Seat is for people who can attend at the drop of a hat. We'll choose a night for you and post your tickets to you two weeks before the show opens. ATC Snap a Seat is strictly limited to the first two hundred subscribers who take advantage of the package.

ATC Regular Subscription

Tailor your own subscription by purchasing tickets to four or more subscription shows during the year. Regular subscribers receive all the benefits of subscribing and can save up to 24% on the price of tickets sold to the general public.

Terms & Conditions

What's the difference between purchasing a subscription and just buying tickets at other times during the season?

The price! You'll save between $10 and $60 per ticket when you subscribe in advance. Also, you can have first pick of the best available seats in the house for plays in 2017. Remember, you can change the date you see a show if the performance for which you originally booked no longer suits.

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

Auckland Theatre Company provides a complimentary no-reason-required ticket exchange service exclusively to subscribers. All we ask is that you return your ticket to us at least forty-eight hours in advance of the original performance and nominate your preferred new performance date for that play. This service is not available for ATC Snap A Seat or tickets to the general public.

Please note:

Terms and conditions apply if you are exchanging tickets from a preview or matinee performance, a premiere 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. 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 address mail to:

ATC Box Office.
Post: PO Box 96002, Balmoral,
Auckland 1342.
Courier: ASB Waterfront Theatre,
138 Halsey Street, Auckland, 1010.
Please be sure to enclose your postal address, new preferred performance date and daytime contact number, along with any applicable payment. You can also visit the ASB Waterfront Theatre or Auckland Theatre Company’s office, Monday to Friday, between 9.00am and 5.00pm. We can process the exchange while you wait.

What if I lose my tickets?

In most cases, subscription tickets can be replaced free of charge. Call us on 09 309 3395 and we’ll make sure replacement tickets are waiting for you at the venue.

Can I still exchange my tickets at Auckland Theatre Company on Dominion Road?

Yes, you're welcome to do so.

Can ATC Theatre Club group members exchange their tickets?

Yes. As long as at least six members of an ATC Theatre Club change to another performance together as a group and the request to transfer tickets is made at least forty-eight hours prior to the original performance, the exchange is made free of charge.

Please note:

Terms and conditions apply if fewer than six members of an ATC Theatre Club change their tickets to another performance in the season.

Terms & Conditions

Can an ATC Snap A Seat ticket be exchanged?

No. If you cannot use the ticket issued to you, why not gift it to a friend so they can enjoy a night at the theatre, courtesy of your generosity?

If I book multiple ATC Snap A Seat tickets, will we sit together?

Auckland Theatre Company cannot guarantee that multiple tickets booked as part of one ATC Snap A Seat subscription will be seated together but we will take note of the request when your booking is being processed.

What are preview performances?

Preview performances are the first performances of a season. They are likened to public dress rehearsals – and priced at a cheaper subscription rate.

What are premiere performances?

Premiere performances are in the first week of a season. We offer a special price for subscribers and public bookers for wanting to see the show in the first week!

What if I have friends who want to attend a show with me but are not subscribers themselves?

Talk to them about becoming subscribers too – then they can receive all the benefits that you do! Alternatively, you can book extra tickets for them at the time of subscribing to take advantage of the lower subscription prices and benefits.

If you want to book for friends at a later date, you can ring Auckland Theatre Company on 09 309 3395 to buy extra tickets at the standard public prices. Auckland Theatre Company is also happy to exchange your existing subscription tickets to ensure you can all sit together.

How can I make a donation to Auckland Theatre Company?
