Every Tuesday morning at 9am, Suncorp Twenties go on sale for every STC show for the following week (Monday to Saturday), excluding opening night performances.
STC Executive Director Patrick McIntyre said: “Suncorp Twenties have become much loved by those snapping up these cheap tickets. In a recent survey of Suncorp Twenties buyers, 100% of respondents said they would definitely recommend Suncorp Twenties to others. Overwhelmingly our customers prefer to purchase tickets online, so we’re pleased to now introduce an online purchase facility, and we are very grateful to Suncorp for their continuing support of the initiative.”
Geoff Summerhayes, CEO of Suncorp Life, said: “Suncorp Twenties allows access to the best theatre at a very affordable price and we are delighted to extend this innovative sponsorship of the highly successful program with Sydney Theatre Company. It’s great that people will find them easier to purchase too, with the introduction of online sales every Tuesday.”
