ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.
General Prices: Pay What You Decide
Seating: Unreserved seated
Magic is everywhere. Put on a dress and people treat you one way. Try a pinstripe suit and, abracadabra it’s like you are a different person. They say beauty is just skin deep but then why is appearance so important to the way we are treated?
Matt likes wearing suits and Matt likes wearing dresses. Matt likes being visible and Matt likes being invisible. Matt likes making things appear and disappear. Matt is a poet and a performer. Matt is interested in how appearances shape how we treat each other. Matt will appear onstage tonight.
Matt has brought along some frocks and some ties, some slight of hand and some party poppers, some fitting in and some standing proud. Matt is neither a boy nor a girl but has been both. Matt will do his best, for you.
Matt will be performing. Won’t you be, too? Playing out some version of you. What do other people see when they look at you and is that you, you or an illusion? After all, magic is everywhere if you look for it.
Fitting explores our universal experiences of visibility, invisibility and finding new places to fit. Fitting is a spoken word glamour fest sprinkled with a little magic dust.
