The NSW Government has 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.
Based on this change, we are thrilled to confirm that The Picture of Dorian Gray will take to the stage in the remaining months of 2020.
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 to rebook or return their tickets.
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.

We have been working to ensure a safe and comfortable experience at the theatre for our audience, artists and staff and have implemented a range of stringent new health and safety measures, including: mandatory masks for audience members and staff, increased cleaning of public spaces, upgraded air conditioning, hand sanitiser stations and processes to reduce congestion in foyer areas.
