What’s on

COVID-19 update


Fri 5 Mar 2021

We are delighted to announce that NSW Health has granted Sydney Theatre Company an exemption to the current Public Health Order, allowing us to increase audience capacities to 100% for performances at Roslyn Packer Theatre, Wharf 1 Theatre and Wharf 2 Theatre.

We would like to thank the Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and the NSW Department of Health, who we have worked closely with to get to this point. We are thrilled to be the first live performance venue in the state to be performing to full houses again, almost exactly one year after the industry was shut down due to COVID-19.

Playing Beatie Bow performances will be upgraded to 100% capacity from Tue 9 Mar. The new 100% capacity rule will also apply to our upcoming seasons of Appropriate and Fun Home, as well as our soon-to-be-announced Act 2 Season for Wharf and Roslyn Packer Theatre productions. Please note, productions at Sydney Opera House and the Seymour Centre are not covered by this exemption, so Home, I’m Darling and The Wharf Revue will continue to be sold and performed at 75% of capacity.

We have developed exemplary health and safety measures in our theatres, and our exemption was granted based on these efforts. It is worth noting that masks will remain mandatory in the auditorium for all audience members aged 12+. View a comprehensive outline of our safety measures.

We understand that some audience members may be uncomfortable attending the theatre at full capacity. If this is the case, ticket holders for performances from Tue 9 Mar are encouraged to contact Box Office on (02) 9250 1777 for a refund or ticket exchange.

New tickets for the critically acclaimed Playing Beatie Bow, as well as the upcoming seasons of Appropriate and Fun Home, will go on sale at 10am Tue 9 Mar.
