We have adopted a staged approach to reopening based on Public Health Order requirements.
We will initially restrict numbers to a lower level than our total allowable audience capacity so that we are able to control audience flow and avoid risk factors to ensure our customers feel safe coming back to the Theatre.
We currently accommodate an audience capacity of 150 people in the Civic Theatre and up to 50 people at one time in the Playhouse.
From 1 October onwards, we will accommodate an audience capacity of 500 people in the Civic Theatre and up to 80 people at one time in the Playhouse.
This capacity ensures the 4 square metres of space per person can be achieved. The capacity also allows our visitors to comfortably move about the space, while maintaining 1.5m physical distance from other members of the public.
If you book tickets together on the one transaction you will be seated together.
You will receive pre-show information from the venue about our COVID-safe procedures.
Once you are in the theatre, you will notice seating will allow for physical distancing.
