Trivia: one seat in the Dress Circle will be left empty for a ghost named Frederick Baker who is said to have died during his performance at the Princess Theatre stage back in 1888. Well, some of the crew and guests have claimed to have seen his ghost hence the seat left for him.
Anyway, take note that the front doors will open 1 hour before the performance schedules. It is highly recommended that you arrive an hour early before your event. If you have companions with mobility impairments or those who can’t take the stairs, the Stalls seating is highly recommendedIf you need to use a wheelchair, book one directly with Princess Theatre Box Office at (03) 9299 9800.
