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.

threat and horror
There are occasional intense moments of threat, such as a man attempting to steal a boy’s phone, as well as a crocodile snapping its jaws at a man cornered in a zoo enclosure. These moments are brief and end reassuringly, with other scenes of threat involving fantastical elements, most notably a singing crocodile. In one scene, the crocodile is tasered and then sedated before Wildlife Control take him away to a zoo. Another scene involves the crocodile swallowing a pet cat whole, before spitting it back out moments later. There are also chase sequences on foot and in motor vehicles, but these are brief and comic, without resulting in serious injury. A boy experiences some anxiety when commuting through New York City and in one scene suffers a panic attack. However, the boy receives immediate medical help, as well as continued comfort and encouragement from his family.
Scenes of very mild rude humour involve animals flatulating and a cat with the runs. Comic violence consists of brief bouts of wrestling and undetailed references to a man’s run-ins with loan sharks. A boy is picked on by older students on his first day at a new school, but this behaviour is portrayed negatively. There is infrequent use of very mild bad language (‘God’). There are also moments of emotional upset when characters are separated from one another.
