CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) and NEW THEATRE

We’re coming back!!

As public health restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic continue to ease, we’re that much closer to being able to reopen and welcome audiences again, to delight in the ‘shared experience’ of live theatre.

We’re thrilled to announce that our program for the remainder of the year is now in place. In September-October, we’ll be presenting our production of Neighbourhood Watch, which was set to open when we had to shut our doors in March. This will be followed in October-November by the world premiere of Saro Lusty-Cavallari’s adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, which was just about to commence rehearsals when the lock-down happened. Finally, in November-December we’ll be bringing you the first Sydney production of an acclaimed adaptation of one of Australia’s most beloved novels (which subsequently became an iconic film). More details to follow. Dates for all three seasons are still to be finalised and will be announced soon.

Social distancing requirements will be in place to keep cast, crew, staff and audiences safe, but obviously we will have to limit the number of people we can accommodate in the auditorium, so we suggest you purchase your tickets as soon as they become available!

We will continue to update the website as things progress, and you can sign up below for our eNews and receive updates direct to your inbox every fortnight.

We are very excited about hosting The Silver Gull Play Award too, a competition for NSW-based playwrights, with a prize pool of $5000. Full details here and entries from eligible playwrights can be submitted until 31 July.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people who have given us financial support through donations large and small, and we are deeply grateful. We also must thank the NSW state government and the City of Sydney, both of which have given us grants to assist with our survival.

If you have any further questions, please contact Gemma, our Theatre Manager, on 02 9519 3403 / manager@newtheatre.org.au. We look forward to the moment when we can all be together again.
