Ring Leaders have until the 30th March to submit the ticket applications and pay for the tickets. They can be paid in 2 instalments only by credit card – the first now, and the second on the 1st October 2012 for an additional fee of $40.
Ring Leaders who book now wil be advised of their Cycle and seating reserve by the 14th May 2012, and seat numbers will be advised by the 30th November 2012. Tickets will be mailed in July 2013.
Most surprisingly (no, astoundingly !), payment is expected without any further information on the production or casting being provided. This is hardly the way to treat audience members who have contributed several thousand dollars extra to support the RING project !
