GENERAL SALES OPEN ON MONDAY FOR:

•       Cate Blanchett and Isabelle Huppert in The Maids
•       Tim Minchin and Toby Schmitz in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
•       Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving in Waiting For Godot
•       plus all remaining 2013 STC shows including Storm Boy, Romeo and Juliet and Vere (Faith)


On Monday 11 February at 9am, the second half of STC’s 2013 season, including productions featuring Cate Blanchett, Isabelle Huppert, Richard Roxburgh, Hugo Weaving, Tim Minchin and Toby Schmitz, are made available for purchase to all casual ticket buyers.

Until now, tickets for all STC’s plays in the second half of 2013 have been available as part of Season Ticket packages (six plays or more) purchases only.

One of the hottest tickets in 2013 is a new production of Genet’s The Maids adapted by Andrew Upton and Benedict Andrews featuring Isabelle Huppert and Cate Blanchett.  Firmly establishing his reputation as one of the world’s leading directors, Andrews has recently been awarded Best Director in the highly prestigious 2012 London Critics’ Circle Awards for his production of Three Sisters.

The opportunity to see Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving reunited with their Uncle Vanya director Tamás Ascher for that cornerstone of 20th century theatre, Waiting for Godot, has already proved so popular with Season Ticket holders that another week of performances has been added.

Tim Minchin and Toby Schmitz, taking on another of theatre’s great double acts directed by Simon Phillips in Tom Stoppard’s comic masterpiece Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, are also likely to be major drawcards at the box office.

2013 has got off to an excellent start for STC with the first two shows, The Secret River and School Dance, completely selling out.  STC’s next show – Mrs Warren’s Profession by George Bernard Shaw, featuring Helen Thomson, Lizzie Schebesta and Simon Burke – has sold so well it will have an extension of two-and-a-half weeks in July, in addition to the eight weeks originally offered from February to April. For STC’s subsequent two shows: the outrageous Little Mercy by edgy innovators Sisters Grimm and a new show by choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, Dance Better at Parties, there is limited availability only.

Also proving to be very popular with season ticket holders are the West End and Broadway sensation One Man, Two Guvnors from London’s National Theatre, a new adaptation of much loved family classic Storm Boy featuring Trevor Jamieson and Peter O’Brien, and Laser Beak Man, STC’s collaboration with the internationally lauded Back To Back Theatre.
