Attending productions

To maximise safety and comply with current NSW Government regulations, the following measures are in place for events at the NIDA Theatres.

  • The NIDA building will open one hour prior to the performance.
  • Upon entry to the building you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff who will check your temperature and give you a sticker to show that you have been checked.
  • You will also be asked to use your mobile device to scan a QR code and complete an online form with your details for contact tracing purposes.
  • In-line with the current 4 square metre rule, ticket capacity will be capped based on venue size following 4 square metre social distancing guidelines.
  • In order to minimise touch points, handling and face to face contact, tickets will be issued via email or SMS, no hard copy tickets will change hands.
  • Tickets will be issued as general admission. Upon entry to the theatre patrons will be allocated a row. In your allocated row patrons are requested to maintain a minimum two seats between their immediate friend/family group and the next group in the same row.
  • Subject to the evolving situation and advice, NIDA Theatres reserves the right to alter seating arrangements should the need arise. It is requested that all patrons comply with instructions given by staff.
