  • what show is playing @her majestys theatre 7 to 12 september and what are seat prices in the stalls. Does the theatre have any stall seats where I can stretch my leg as I have a bad right leg. Also do you have concession tickets for pensioners ? Thanks for your help. Des Hanley

    • Hi Des,

      Looks like Rocky Horror is playing until August and then the next show isn’t until October. A Midsummers Night Dream is playing 3-7 October, and then School of Rock later in October.

      The seats are quite narrow, so I recommend you book an aisle seat in the stalls so you can stretch your leg out during the show.

      Best regards,

  • we have booked 2 seats to see Beautiful on May 18 in dress circle ($165 per ticket) did not realize there were concession prices is there any way to get a credit for the difference thanks Neil

    • Hi Mildred,

      Most shows at Her Majesty’s Theatre offer a Concession priced ticket which is generally $10 or $20 cheaper than the full priced ticket. You will need to check the individual show to see if this type of ticket is on offer for the show of your choice.

      Currently, ‘Aladdin’ is playing, followed by ‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’. Both offer concession priced tickets.

      Best regards,
