    Refunds and Reschedules

    Due to COVID-19 many shows have had to be rescheduled. When a show is moved to a new date, it is updated on the DRTCC website, DRTCC Facebook page, venue signage and all ticket holders are emailed using the email address they used to purchase tickets, texted using the mobile number they have provided, or phoned on a landline if no email contact or mobile number is provided.

    Customers have four weeks from the announcement of the new date to get in contact with the Theatre and request a refund if they are not available for the new show date. After the four weeks, refunds are CLOSED. Tickets are valid at the new date (seats remain the same) unless advised.
