What’s the best way for me to collect my tickets?
The safest and most efficient way for you to receive your tickets is by choosing the eTicket delivery method when purchasing online. eTickets are sent via email and can be displayed directly from a smart phone, so there is no need to print your tickets.
This will ensure you do not have to queue at the box office prior to the performance and minimises the handling of tickets.
