Brown’s Mart Theatre produces a number of Productions throughout the year, as well as providing the venue for hire to other Arts Organisations and Corporate Clients for their shows and events. Tickets for Brown’s Mart Shows can be purchased through our website. Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged after purchase except as outlined in the Live Performance Australia Ticketing Code of Practice.


When attending a Brown’s Mart show, we expect that people will arrive within a reasonable time of the commencement of the show. Some Brown’s Mart shows have a ‘lock out’ period. Latecomers may not be admitted into the performance should there be a 'lock out'. Entry may be permitted at a suitable break in the performance but only as dictated by the production team and/or Theatre staff.


Brown’s Mart expect that their staff will be treated with politeness and respect when executing lock out periods. These directives are out of the staff’s hands, and they are doing what is required for the best outcome of the show.

Some productions at Brown's Mart may contain strong language, smoking, nudity, violence, strobe lighting, haze or other things you may find confronting or uncomfortable. If you are concerned about any of these please call the Browns Mart office during normal office hours.
