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.
As summer is upon us, kids are rounding to attend AdirondACTS, a disjointed theater camp in upstate New York that’s a haven for budding performers.
After its invincible founder Joan falls into a coma, her clueless “crypto-bro” son Troy is assigned with keeping the thespian paradise running.
With impending financial ruin, Troy must join forces with Amos, Rebecca-Diane and their band of eccentric teachers to come up with a formula before the curtain rises on opening night.
The Guardian- Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman have made watching bad acting a thrill in this zippy and joke-filled film about jazz-handing theatre kids ★★★★
The New York Times- Clearly, the actors feel their characters in their bones
New York Magazine- Theater Camp really just wants to bask in the world it’s created, and it’s hard to complain about something being too affectionate
Director: Molly Gordon, Nick Lieberman
Cast: Ben Platt, Molly Gordon, Noah Galvin
BBFC Ratings Information (May contain spoilers)
There is a fake, yet impactful, theatrical slap.
Infrequent strong language occurs (‘f**k’), as well as moderate bad language (‘bitch’), and milder terms such as ‘piss’, ‘ass’, ‘hell’, ‘damn’, ‘Jesus and ‘God’.
Mild sex references are made to virginity and sex work within the context of fictional musical theatre characters. These are comic and undetailed.
A musical performance satirises historical sexist attitudes towards women.
A musical performance contains a very stylised depiction of cocaine misuse in which performers pull a fluffy white rope out of a large papier-mâché nose.
There are visual and verbal references to a character being in a coma following a seizure.
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
