Never miss out

Purchasing a Subscription Package means your seats are organised well in advance. You’ll be patting yourself on the back for getting those (cheaper!) tickets to the sell-out shows instead of saying “Oh, I really wanted to see that!”

Add Tickets

When you subscribe you can add additional (regular priced) tickets to your subscription package so you can sit together.

Flexibility

NORPA subscribers are free to exchange their tickets for another show in the NORPA Season, if tickets are available. Just contact the staff at our Box Office, at least two days before the show, and they will do the hard work for you.

Support NORPA

Purchasing a Subscription Package is a great way to support NORPA so we can continue to present outstanding performing arts to the region.

You can also create a subscription package over the phone by calling our Box Office on 1300 066 772 (weekdays 9am-4pm). If you prefer the traditional way you can download a Subscription Form here and post, email or drop it in to us and we will do the work for you!
