Pay What You Decide Info
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.
Students from BA (Hons) Acting for Stage and Screen and BA (Hons) Film, TV & Theatre Production at The Northern School of Art present three short devised pieces inspired by Black Holes and the space between people/moments/thoughts. The students have worked collaboratively on a wide range of techniques for creating work which they then have utilised to create these pieces.
The programme has been designed by working professionals to allow students to develop the skills required for performing on stage and screen. This joint approach gives experience of both mediums and offers the student a distinct advantage in the job market or to explore further their craft. More information on the courses can be found here.
This will be the first public performance for the 2nd year students at ARC, and they are excited about presenting these pieces.
The showing of work will be followed by an opportunity to feedback on the work seen, which will be really helpful for the students’ progress and development.
