An update on reopening our theatres
On 14 June, the NSW Government announced that indoor cultural venues, including theatres, can reopen from 1 July with social distancing limited to one person per four square metres.
This is great news. However, the four square metre rule severely restricts how many tickets we can sell. This means that we are still unable to re-open our theatres in time for The Picture of Dorian Gray, scheduled to run from July. We are now working to reschedule the production for later in the year — we’ll be back in touch with more information as soon as possible. All ticket holders will have the option to automatically be reseated into the new dates, but also have a number of ticket return options available. View options.
Meanwhile, Artistic Director Kip Williams and his creative team continue developing this exciting and innovative production and we can’t wait to share it with you as soon as we are able.
We are working together with our industry peers and the government to gain a sense of certainty around when we can reopen our venues safely at full capacity, and hope to be back on stage in September. We will continue to follow advice on developing stringent safety policies and procedures to accompany this.

Refunds and returns

We will contact the ticket booker of all cancelled performances
We will only be in contact with the person who made the booking. In this unprecedented situation, our Box Office is fielding a tremendous volume of requests and cancelling tens of thousands of tickets. While we are working to be as responsive as possible, please be mindful that significant delays may be experienced in our customer service channels. Please await our contact.
We greatly appreciate your patience, support, and understanding.
