WHAT ARE ORCHESTRA, STALLS, LOUNGE & DRESS CIRCLE?
*There are no sightline issues in this venue. Viewing is equally as good from the side as the centre so our recommendation is to purchase seats as close to the front as possible.
Orchestra seats are located on the ground level in the front half of the auditorium.
The front row is A and the back row is Q.
The Orchestra IS NOT A PIT under the stage and all seats are considered excellent viewing.
The Stalls are located on seats on the downstairs, ground level and sits directly behind the Orchestra.
The front row is A and the back row is W.
The floor has a steep incline towards the stage and the stage inclines towards the audience so there is a feeling of being much closer than seats look on the map.
The Prime seats in the Stalls are A-J, however all seating downstairs can be considered a good seat in this venue.
The venue has a second level. The front of this level is the Lounge.
The front row is A and the back row is M.
It is a traditional seated area, however the seats are slightly wider than the Stalls and Dress Circle, hence the name Lounge.
Prime seats in the Lounge are A-D* - *please note these seats are strictly no standing.
Anything in the Lounge can be considered a good seat in this venue.
The back of the 2nd level is called the Dress Circle. It sits directly behind the Lounge.
Prime seats in this area are rows N-P.
The view of the stage and the acoustics of the performance from the Dress Circle are as good as anywhere else in the venue, however it is at this point where you do feel the distance from the stage.
THE BEST SEATS?
The Ticketmaster and Palais Theatre system allocates Best Available seats as recommended by the Palais Theatre.
Seats will be allocated from the centre front of the Orchestra. As the seats move back in the Stalls the system will move to the centre front of the Lounge upstairs. It will then move back down to the Stalls and so on. You can feel confident that as per the venue's recommendation, you will be allocated the first seats available for sale that are considered to be closest to the stage.
If you already know you prefer the Orchestra, Stalls or the Lounge ensure you select this box when purchasing online.
All enquiries and bookings for disabled patrons or patrons who require assistance go through Ticketmaster on 136 100 (Option 1 then Option 2).
