Any one know when tickets for August will go on sale? I'm planing to see it when I come in Dec. Also does anyone know who the cast will be? I heard it may be the original broadway cast.

They go on sale early September. I think it's Wednesday for general availability, but I received an email telling me I'd be able to book from Monday. Probably because I've booked a bazillion things at the National before.

Yup, Wednesday for general availability. ^_^

The National open bookings around 6 to 8 weeks prior to previews. I knew Weez would give you the answer
A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

Does the National ever do student rates/concessions? I really want to see this!

Is this show part of The National Theatre's Travelex 10 season?

No, August is not part of the Travelex series - that's only in the Olivier and August is going into the Littleton.

Students can get 10 seats best available 45 min. before curtain to all shows at the National, and there are a limited number of day and standing seats for all performances as well.

Travelex seems to be only a random array of summery shows.

Assuming all Lyttelton shows are priced similarly, the cheapest full-priced seat is likely to be around 22, or 16.50 for under 18s.

If you're able, it's worth getting to the National in the early am and queueing up for a day seat. You can get 'em for a mere 10, and they're pretty damn good, generally. You don't even need to start queueing that early, I don't think. Certainly nowhere near as early as you needed to queue for Donmar 'Othello' or RSC 'Hamlet'.

No, the day seats are for whoever gets there.

And yes, queues do start early when they have a major hit. I queued for two hours for War Horse and there were still at least 30 people in front of me.

Hurrah! Second row stalls for a tenner! Okay, I'm RIGHT over to one side, but the extreme sides in the Lyttelton are pretty awesome compared with the extreme sides in other theatres, so this is lovely. And, y'know, a tenner! Being as cheap as I am, this is very pleasing indeed. re: August Osage County Tickets

It's a weird online priority thing that gives us a mere two day headstart on the rest of the public. I signed in, and it let me buy. So I did! I'm also going to see 'War Horse' on the same day, so I'm VERY much looking forward to it all now! ^_^

The main student ticket program they're running at the national, or at least the one I use, is the entry pass system which isn't really a student system, just anyone from 15-19. Send off for a card (you can download the form on their website) and then you get sent a card that lets you book 5 tickets for any production in any auditorium, and two 7.50 for friends aswell. I know for the olivier, you can get the 10 and 15 tickets for the reduced rates, but I don't know about the other theatres, just that it's always 5. Looking forward to booking mine tomorrow!

Although, I wish I could get a refund for my ticket to her naked skin. re: August Osage County Tickets

The casting has FINALLY been announced, and we've got all of the Original Broadway Cast, except for two. I literally cannot contain my excitement. This is going to be incredible.

I've seen it 3 times now and it is stunning. The buzz this will get at opening will be incredible.

How well do we think this is going to sell? Is it worth risking for student tickets or should I just book ahead?

This will be one the Nationals biggest hits this year. It comes to the South Bank with an incredible pedigree already and just the fact its at the National will sell it.
