Welcome to Roslyn Packer Theatre
Your guide to a safe and enjoyable theatre experience
Updated 6 Apr 2021
We are delighted to welcome you back to the theatre. The safety of our audiences, artists and staff is of paramount importance. Please read the important information below regarding your visit and take the time to read our current COVID Safe measures, noting that we regularly update our processes based on the latest government advice. Check this page for the latest safety measures prior to your visit.
With your cooperation, together we can stay safe and reconnect with each other.
Please be aware that when you come to the show, you will be seated according to the NSW Public Health orders prevailing at the date of the performance, not at the time of buying your ticket.
At times, due to STC’s enhanced COVID safety plans, the NSW Government may grant a special exemption allowing the company to perform to larger capacities than current Health Orders.
STC will continue to act in strict compliance with directions from NSW Health.
Consider how comfortable you will be should you arrive at the theatre to a full house, and be seated alongside people outside your immediate group. By the time of your performance, this may once again be a safe way to gather.
100% audience capacity
NSW Health has granted Sydney Theatre Company an exemption to the current Public Health Order, allowing us to increase audience capacity to 100% at Roslyn Packer Theatre for STC shows. We encourage you to consider your comfort levels before attending. We will continue to offer refunds up to the date of performance to ticket holders who have concerns with returning to a busy theatre.
