Theatre: At the Door Discounts

Day Tickets / Tickets at the Door

Some theaters sell reduced price tickets on the day of the performance. These are often front row seats, but may also include other seats unsold for that day. Times vary for the release of these tickets, but it is often at 10:00 am or when the box office opens on the day of the performance. It is usually advisable to arrive earlier as there may be a queue for popular shows.


Contact the theater directly to see if they have day tickets and when they are released.



Returned Tickets


People often return tickets to the theatre for resale and 90 minutes before a show starts, ticket agents send their tickets back to the boxoffice. Returns may be sold at regular or discounted prices. For popular shows, there is often a queue for returned tickets.


Contact the theatre for returns procedures.


Concessions


Some theatres have reduced price tickets for students, senior citizens and jobseekers. Theatres also offer a free ticket for the companion of a disabled person paying full price.


Contact the theater for their concessions’ policy.


Standing Room Tickets


Some theatres offer Standing Room Tickets for sold-out shows. These can be purchased at the box office.

The Royal Court Theatre in Sloane Square (Chelsea) offers standing tickets at 10p for a limited number of tickets on sale an hour before performances at the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs. Tickets are only available in person and are restricted to one per person. Each ticket offers a 'restricted view' and they're subject to availability.
