Do not worry if you do not hear back from us right away, the request will may take up to 48hrs to be processed. As long as we have it prior to the start of the performance, we will guarantee the exchange.
  • What if it's Raining? Will the performance be cancelled?
    The show will go on, if it's safe to do so! We hope that if it has been raining, you will still join us for some fun. If a performance is to be cancelled, patrons will be notified via a text message and an email. Earliest notification of a cancelled performance will be on the day of the scheduled performance. Patrons affected by a cancelled performance are invited to exchange their tickets for an alternative performance date/time or receive a lifetime credit to use on future shows. If a performance goes ahead in such conditions but you are concerned about attending during some slight rain, we are more than happy to exchange your tickets in advance to an alternate date. We definitely don't want you to have an unpleasant experience! Please FILL OUT THIS FORM to send us a request for a date change. If you'd like to speak with one of our team, please email
  • Is there shade cover at the performance?
    There is no shade cover at our performances so please consider bringing sun protection items including a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle. Umbrellas can not be raised during the performance unless you are seated at the very rear.
  • I've purchased a ticket online. How do I collect it?
    After you book online you should receive a confirmation email with the option to print your ticket or view an online version. There's no need to collect tickets beforehand. Simply print the tickets at home or display your ticket on your phone at the box office. We recommend this option to save paper! If you don't receive your confirmation email please email and we can resend it to you.
  • Are your productions suitable for children? Can I bring my dog?
    Are your productions suitable for children? Yes! All Melbourne Shakespeare Company productions are created with young people in mind. Although some of Shakespeare's work deals with mature themes, we communicate the language through song and dance so it's able to be understood by all ages! There is no swearing in our performances and all fight scenes are highly choreographed. We highly recommend talking about the themes of the play with your child beforehand if you are concerned they may become distressed. Can I bring my dog? We encourage you to consider how your fury friend copes with noise and crowds before bringing them along. If you have a dog who barks at people, the first sign of movement or noise we recommend leaving them at home but if you know they'll simply lay back and enjoy the grass (and singing) - of course! Come one come all. Melbourne Shakespeare Company reserves the right to ask you to remove your dog if they are disrupting audience members or audience's experience of the performance at any point.
