PlaybyPlay UK is a unique service organisation that fills
unsold seats for performances. We do not sell tickets.
PlaybyPlay Participants should NEVER contact a theatre
directly for ANY REASON WHATSOEVER!
Seating locations are at the discretion of the producers and/or the box
office and should never be questioned by PlaybyPlay attendees.
"NO SHOW" POLICY: Members who fail to attend a performance
for which they have an active reservation:
1) will immediately have their accounts frozen against future reservations;
2) will have their account terminated with membership fees non-refundable.
In case of an extenuating circumstance or emergency: if a participant
is unable to attend a reserved performance PlaybyPlay should
be notified as soon as possible. No refund of Service Fee will be given.
Failure to notify PlaybyPlay prior to a confirmed reservation
not being honoured will result in closure of an account without refund.
ONLY PlaybyPlay account holders may collect tickets at the box office
or other designated location. Failing to collect tickets yourself will
result in immediate cancellation of an account without refund.
Attendees must have a Reservation Confirmation in hand when collecting
tickets. Box office, theatre management, and PlaybyPlay officials reserve
the right to require appropriate identification to verify an account holder's
Out of respect for producers, productions, and venues Play by Play members
agree to refrain from discussing the receipt of complimentary tickets
and/or Play by Play UK on any internet discussion forum or whilst attending
a performance. Failure to abide by this policy will result in immediate
cancellation without refund.
The number of individuals who are granted access to PlaybyPlay's
offerings is limited and subject to availability and approval. Minimum
age for participation is 18.
The registration fee to open a PlayByPlay account is £75.
In order to maintain an open account a renewal fee is required annually
on the anniversary date of the account's initial transaction. The renewal
fee is £75.
Account registration fees are 100% refundable up to thirty (30)
days after purchase if the account has not been activated by reserving
seats and attending a performance. Once seats have been reserved and the
tickets used the account is considered activated and the registration
fee is no longer refundable.
Account holders may renew their account
at any time. A renewal will automatically become active on the anniversary
date of the active account. PlaybyPlay will remind account holders
via email a minimum of 30 days prior to an account's expiration.
PlaybyPlay Participants are required to pay a small Service
Fee for each seat reserved. Fees currently range from £1.00-£3.00
per seat and are clearly indicated for each performance. After a performance
has been reserved Service Fees will only be refunded if the performance
is cancelled by the theatre or producer.
Account holders are provided the option of paying Service Fees
for ticket reservations in advance. Our website tracks Prepaid Service
Fee balances and subtracts the appropriate fee for each seat reserved.
When participants log into the PlaybyPlay website their Service
Fee balance appears at the top of the page in red. By logging in with
their confidential password account holders may also access their Prepaid
Service Fee history by clicking "Transaction History" at the
top of any page. Transaction History details when Prepaid Service Fees
were paid, which performances were reserved and the dates for all transactions.
When a Prepaid Service Fee balance is not sufficient to cover the fees
needed for a reservation the website will direct the participant to the
Credit Card Transaction page to make a deposit into their Service Fee
account. Account holders may deposit the Service Fee for just the seats
they desire at that time or, for convenience, deposit an additional amount
for use at a later date. For security purposes, PlaybyPlay does
not capture or store any credit card information, therefore credit card
information must be entered with each transaction.
PlaybyPlay reserves the right to change account opening fees,
renewal fees, and service fees at the discretion of management.
Account holders will be notified a minimum of 30 days prior to a change.
PlayByPlay Account Holders are offered the opportunity to fill
from 2 to 4 seats per performance, based on available inventory. Ticket
quantities and availability are at the full discretion of the show's producers,
ONLY PlaybyPlay account holders may reserve seats for shows.
PlaybyPlay accounts are Non-Transferable. In all cases the Registered
Account Holder of PlayByPlay must present appropriate identification
to collect reserved tickets at the box office or other designated location.
No exceptions are made to this policy. Misuse of an account will result
in immediate cancellation without refund.
When attending a performance as a representative of PlaybyPlay
account holders must follow the appropriate Standards
of Decorum, Discretion and Dependability as established by
this organization in conjunction with participating theatre producers
(See Standards of Decorum, Discretion and Dependability
as an Addendum to Terms and Conditions
Account holders must collect their tickets at the time and location
designated by PlaybyPlay for each individual show. Anyone failing
to do so will not be issued refunds for Service Fees. Failing to collect
tickets at the designated time and location may result in immediate cancellation
of an account without refund.
PlaybyPlay attendees arriving late are forbidden from approaching
the Box Office to request tickets. This action will result in immediate
cancellation of an account without refund. Theatres depend on PlaybyPlay
participants to follow designated instructions so as not to interfere
with the arrival and service of audience members who have paid for tickets.
Should a theatre or box office be unable to honour a PlaybyPlay
reservation after the participant has followed all designated rules,
please co-operate fully with the theatre and inform
PlaybyPlay immediately. Appropriate Service Fee refunds will
be made immediately and the theatre will be contacted to resolve the issue.
Selling of tickets acquired through PlaybyPlay is strictly
prohibited by law and will result in appropriate legal action and the
immediate cancellation of an account (without refund).
PlaybyPlay and theatre management reserve the right to refuse
admission for inappropriate dress or conduct, which will also result in
cancellation of an account without refund.
