Ticket categories

Premium Seating (P)

Available for selected shows, Premium seats are the very best seats in which to see the show. Premium seats are limited and sell quickly.

A Reserve (A)

These are the best seats in the venue (after Premium, if Premium seating applies). A Reserve seats are not sight obstructed and offer the best vantage point for seeing the show.

B Reserve (B)

These are the second best seats in the venue. B Reserve seats are not sight obstructed and offer a good view of the performance. (Please note: where there is no reserve lower than B Reserve, the C or D Reserve definition may apply.)

C Reserve (C)

A limited number of seats are available at this price category. These seats are not the best seats in the venue, and are often at the back or to the very sides of the theatre. (Please note: where there is no reserve lower than C Reserve, the D Reserve definition may apply.)

D Reserve (D)

These represent the lower priced seats in the theatre and may have minor sightline and/or sound issues.

Restricted View (RV)

These are the lowest priced seats in the theatre and will have restricted sightlines and/or sound issues.

General Admission (GA)

There are no reserved seats and seating is on a “first come, first served” basis. It is highly recommended you arrive 30 minutes early to ensure the best choice of seating. Some GA events are standing. Please see the event pages for more information.

Wheelchair Seating

It is essential that you advise us at the time of booking if you have any special seating requirements, including wheelchair seating. At all venues there is an allocated wheelchair area but availability is limited. 

All efforts are made to ensure wheelchair seating/spaces are in the A Reserve area (and will be sold at the lowest non-restricted view price). To make a wheelchair booking, please contact the Festival on 04 912 0411. See Access and inclusion information for more details.

Seating Requests

If you are booking for just one show, you can select your own seat for reserved events when booking online. If you are booking for 2 or more shows online, then Ticketmaster offer 'best available' seating. If you have specific seating requests, we then recommend you phone through your booking and discuss your requirements with a Ticketmaster customer service representative on 0800 120 071. Alternatively, you can visit a Ticketmaster outlet to discuss your seating requirements. 

Please call the Festival on 04 912 0411 to discuss any special access requirements.
