Through Rio Tinto $20 Tickets we hope more Western Australians will be able to experience the joys of live performance.
Heavily subsidised by Rio Tinto (more than 70% off the total ticket price) these $20 tickets aim to provide access to the theatre to those that, for whatever reason, find a theatre experience prohibitive.
Through the Rio Tinto $20 Tickets initiative we look forward to welcoming new patrons to Black Swan State Theatre Company. The 2017 season has something for everyone and is guaranteed to provide a night out like no other.
