2022 Season Frequently Asked Questions


  • A subscription is a pre-purchased package of 4 to 8 plays from our 2022 Season. It’s the cheapest way of purchasing tickets, you get priority access to the best seats in the house, plus you also get added benefits.

  • Value for money! You’ll save up to 22% on most single tickets when you subscribe, and in 2022, you’ll save up to 30% on Girls & Boys and up to 50% on Girl From The North Country.

    We only charge one transaction fee of $8.95 per subscriber, rather than a fee per ticket. And new in 2022, subscribers receive one free exchange for each show in a subscription package, in case your plans change!

    Subscribers receive priority access to the best seats in the house, with seats in every performance reserved for subscription bookings.

    Subscribers also receive bonuses like behind the scenes information, exclusive event invitations and discounts. Visit the subscriptions page for the full list of benefits.

  • The easiest way is to subscribe online.

    You can also complete a booking form (either in the back of our brochure, or download a print file here), scan and email to subscriptions@statetheatrecompany.com.au.

    Send your completed form via post:
    State Theatre Subscriptions
    PO Box 8252, Station Arcade,
    Adelaide SA 5000

    You can also our subscriptions team on 08 8415 5353 and subscribe over the phone.

    Please note: forms are processed in the order they are received and take up to ten working days to process. Box office staff will not be able to allocate your seats until your subscription request reaches the front of the queue – so get in quick!

  • To make your subscription booking process as simple as possible, our system automatically assigns you the best available seats for each show in your subscription. If you purchase multiple seats, you will automatically be assigned seats next to each other.

    You will see your assigned seat numbers at the end of the booking path. However, should you have any special requests, you can add them in the seating request notes (click here for instructions on how to find the seating request section on your booking form) or email us at subscriptions@statetheatrecompany.com.au with your booking number and seating request information.

  • We know that flexibility is more important than ever for ticket buyers, which is why we now offer one free exchange per show in your subscription package. This provides all subscribers the confidence to lock in your shows now, even if your plans change later in the year, or purchase a subscription as a gift!

  • Subscribers have one free exchange per show in their subscription. Subsequent exchanges will attract a processing fee. Exchanges can only be made for different performance dates and times, exchanges from one production to another are not permitted.

    State Theatre Company South Australia Subscription ticket exchanges must be made by contacting the State Theatre Company South Australia Ticket Office on 08 8415 5353 or email subscriptions@statetheatrecompany.com.au 

    Tickets for exchange must be returned to the Box Office at least 24 hours prior to the performance you are exchanging out of.

    If the new performance has a higher ticket price, you will need to pay the difference. There are no refunds for cheaper tickets or failure to attend. Tickets cannot be exchanged after the performance for which they were originally booked. Check our ticketing terms and conditions for more information.

  • Groups bookings for up to nine people can be made online.

    Book subscriptions with your group of friends and every tenth subscription is free! Group bookings of ten or more cannot be made online and must be made in a single transaction. To organise your group please return your booking forms together or call 08 8415 5353.

  • Absolutely! If you are under 30 years, you can buy a super cheap subscription. You just need to show your ID indicating your birthdate at the time of purchase or provide a photocopy with your subscription form. The same offer applies to full-time students.

  • Concession prices are available to Pension Card Holders and Health Care Card Holders. You will need to show your Concession Card at the time of purchase, or provide a photocopy with your subscription form.

    There are also separate prices for Seniors Card holders.

  • Talk to them about becoming a subscriber so that they can receive all of the benefits that you do! Alternatively, you can book tickets for them at the time of subscribing to take advantage of lower additional ticket prices.

  • A Date With State aims to support older and socially isolated people to continue to attend the theatre through challenging circumstances. To attend A Date With State, you will need to book into the specially selected performances and note that you are intending to attend the A Date With State program, so we can seat you in the A Date With State section and send you information about the pre-show hospitality! Call us on 08 8415 5353 to book.

  • State Theatre Company South Australia supports and showcases local theatre companies as part of our Stateside program. In 2022, our Stateside program includes The Rabble’s YES and Kinetik Collective’s Kill Climate Deniers.
