A VERY WELCOME ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THEATRE
25 September 2020
Today the NSW Government announced that theatres are able to increase their audience capacity to 50% from Thu 1 Oct.
This is very exciting and much-needed news for live theatre and the multitude of artists, arts workers and associated industries whose livelihoods depend on it.
Already in rehearsals, the hilarious family comedy Rules for Living will be performed at the Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House with slightly amended dates of 2 Nov – 19 Dec. We will contact all ticket holders on Fri 9 Oct about rebooking their tickets into this new socially distanced production or requesting a refund.
Kip Williams’ new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s classic novel The Picture of Dorian Gray will run from 24 Nov – 19 Dec at Roslyn Packer Theatre. As any change in social distancing requirements impacts our seating, we will contact ticket holders in late October about their ticketing arrangements.
Our first priority is always the health and safety of our audience. With its opening night tonight, Wonnangatta had been seated under the stricter four square metre rule. We will await the detailed NSW public health guidelines and review all changes against our COVID safety measures before we confirm any additional ticket releases for this production.
Kip Williams, Artistic Director
Patrick McIntyre, Executive Director
