Glen Street Reopening
Under the NSW Government "Roadmap to Freedom", Glen Street Theatre will be able to re-open from the Monday after NSW meets the 70% double vaccination target.
Only fully vaccinated people and those with medical exemptions will have access to the venue.
While it’s entirely your call as to whether you join us at the theatre, you can rest assured that Glen Street Theatre is doing everything we can to ensure your experience is a safe one.
The health and safety of our staff and community is our first priority and we are delighted to have received the COVID Safe tick as part of our planning. Our COVID Safe Plan has also been reviewed by Health Protection NSW (NSW Government) so you can feel confident the measures we have in place meet the standards required.
We will continue to follow Government advice closely and act as required under NSW Public Health Orders in place at any time.
Your experience may feel a little different but the commitment and skill of the artists on your stage remains the same.
During your visit here’s what you can expect:
When you book you must provide your current contact details. These details, along with seating locations, will be kept at the venue for 4 weeks from the date of the performance and will be provided to NSW Public Health Officers where requested and as required under NSW legislation.
Seating layouts in the Theatre will be in accordance with NSW Public Health Orders and are subject to change based on conditions required at any point in time.
Under current orders, we can operate to 75% capacity. Seating may be shoulder to shoulder and may feel full, so we encourage you to consider your comfort level before attending.
Any capacity limit in place includes children and babes in arms which means you must include them in your booking.
In accordance with NSW Public Health Orders, only fully vaccinated people and those with medical exemptions will have access to the venue (please be prepared to show proof of vaccination or exemption).
Under current NSW Public Health Orders, the wearing of face masks is mandatory at Glen Street Theatre.
Venue ventilation and airflow are optimised to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
There are sanitiser stations throughout the venue and we encourage you to use them! Please ensure you sanitise on arrival and departure.
All venues are thoroughly cleaned by contract cleaners trained in COVID Safe cleansing protocols prior to each event.
Our staff also regularly undertake high touch point cleaning to ensure these surfaces are regularly sanitised.
The venue will be open 1 hour prior to the beginning of the performance. This way, you can get settled in your seat and ensure you maintain social-distancing measures right from the get-go.
You may be asked to move through the foyer and not to linger—this is so people can access their allocated seat safely and efficiently.
We politely ask that you be increasingly aware of maintaining a safe distance from other patrons as you move through the venue, particularly when queueing at the box office, bar, toilets, and entry and exit points.
Food and Drink
Our bar is open so you can grab a treat or a drink. Please note, our food and drink offerings may differ between shows. Standing while drinking is only permitted outside, so take a seat if consuming a beverage inside the venue.
