Q What happened to Twenties?
A
In 2013 we introduced a new ticket initiative called Suncorp Twenties. Suncorp was a Major Partner at the time and its support helped cover the cost of the ticket discount. Our five year partnership with Suncorp finished at the end of 2017, and STC continued to fund the initiative without the assistance of a sponsor as we’re proud of the program and committed to making theatre accessible to as many people as possible. In 2020 we’re updating the program to Thirties.
 

Q Why has price changed from $20 to $30?
A
This is the first price change since the program began in 2013 and reflects the ongoing rising cost of producing quality theatre. We continue to be committed to providing opportunities helping to make theatre more affordable to more people and have introduced a number of initiatives in 2020. These initiatives include $50 preview performances, and $50 tickets for under 30s for all productions.
