How to Book a Review

If you have a current VDL Group – Local membership, you are welcome to book a review for your production.

Please note that the deadline for submitting a review request is one month prior to the start date of your play.

Also note, from 1/1/2021 all theatre companies wishing to book a reviewer must have lodged their COVIDsafe plan with the VDL. Without a COVIDsafe plan, the VDL is unable to send its volunteer reviewers to your theatre.

See Business Victoria’s website for assistance with your COVIDsafe plan – https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/arts-and-entertainment-services-sector-guidance.

Email your COVIDsafe plan to the VDL Secretary.

To book a review:

  1. Log in to your group’s VDL account.
  2. Go to My Profile > My VDL Content > My Plays.
  3. Find the play in your list of plays, and click the Edit button. (If the play doesn’t already exist, use the Add New button to create it.)
  4. On the play record, click the Review Request dropdown to open the Review Request section.
  5. Click the Create Draft button.
  6. Fill in the “Review Contact Name & Number for Ticket Booking”.
  7. Click the Submit Request button.
  8. Once your request is approved by the VDL, it will be assigned to a reviewer. The reviewer will contact you to arrange two complimentary tickets for viewing your production.
