Enjoying Australian Theatre Safely

To ensure the safety, comfort and enjoyment of your theatre experience, we’ve developed a comprehensive COVID-Safe plan that reflects the specific nature of our intimate venue.  

Please note that we will update our plan regularly according to health advice and the needs of our artists and audiences. Please visit this page for the most up-to-date information. If you have any questions or need further details, please call us on (02) 9361 3817. 

If you are unable to attend a performance due to illness, we will do our best to transfer your ticket to an alternate performance. Otherwise we will refund the cost of your ticket, or offer you a Griffin credit. All credit notes are valid for three years. 

To cancel your tickets due to illness, simply email a member of the Box Office team at [email protected], or call us on (02) 9361 3817. 

At the SBW Stables Theatre

Box Office
Your digital tickets will be emailed to you approximately three days before the performance, with a reminder the day before. Please note that our Box Office is completely contactless and tickets are therefore not available at the door. Simply bring your printed ticket or show the ticket on your phone and you will be scanned in. 

The Box Office and The Penny Cook Bar will be open one hour before the scheduled show time. 

Griffin Theatre Company is running at 100% capacity. 

Proof of Vaccination
We require all people over 16 years who are attending the theatre to be vaccinated (or have a medical exemption). All staff working at our venue are vaccinated.  

Face Masks
Griffin no longer requires the use of face masks while in the venue, including in the theatre.

Griffin will still happily provide you with a face mask should you prefer to wear one while visiting the SBW Stables Theatre.

Food & Beverage
The Penny Cook Bar will be open before and after each performance. Eating and drinking is permitted while seated or standing in the foyer, and beverages are permitted up in the theatre.

Venue Cleaning
All spaces in the SBW Stables Theatre are thoroughly cleaned after every performance. This includes but is not limited to: the seating banks, bathrooms, foyer, stairwell and bar.
