How do I buy a ticket or a flex pass?

  • Seating may be selected in person within one hour before the performance begins for that day’s performance (subject to availability). Please note that many of our performances sell out rapidly, so advance reservations are recommended.

What exactly is a Season Flex Pass?

A season flex pass is a membership to Melbourne Civic Theatre for a particular season and gives five seats to any show except the Holiday Show, special shows and fund raisers during that season.

We have a limited number of passes available.  Flex Passes may be purchased between March 1 and December 31, or until we reach 600.  Flex Passes are $130 for adults, and $119 for seniors (over 62), students (with a student ID) and active duty or retired military (with a valid military ID card).

There are no refunds for Season Flex Passes nor can they be used for any season but the one specified.

Flex Passes may not be used for the Holiday Show, special shows or fundraising shows.

Flex Pass holders can exchange their tickets once during a particular show.

  • Tickets held by Flex Pass Holders (who are permitted one date exchange per show) must be exchanged at least 24 hours prior to the production date of the original tickets.
  • If you have the tickets in your possession, you must exchange them at the box office.
  • Tickets may only be exchanged for another performance of the same show, not for another show.
  • Tickets may not be exchanged on the day of the production.


What about individual tickets?

Adult tickets are $31. For seniors (over 62), students (with a student ID) and active duty or retired military (with a valid military ID card) they are $29.

The general public can reserve tickets by contacting the Box Office or ordering online two Tuesdays before the opening date of the show. Tickets must be paid for at the time they are reserved.
