Enjoying Australian Theatre Safely

To ensure the safety, comfort and enjoyment of your theatre experience, we’ve developed a comprehensive COVID-Safe plan in accordance with current government regulations.  

Please note that as government guidelines are changing regularly, we will update our plan accordingly. Please visit this page on our website for the most up-to-date information. If you have any questions or need further details, please call us on (02) 9361 3817. 

Across all our shows:
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 will be running at 75% capacity in line with current NSW government regulations. 

Proof of Vaccination
We require all people over 16 years who are attending the theatre to be fully vaccinated (or have a medical exemption). You will be required to show proof of double vaccination to Griffin staff upon arrival at the theatre. All staff working at our venue are fully vaccinated.  

Face Masks
Griffin Theatre Company requires the use of face masks while in the venue. If you’ve forgotten your mask (or left it on the train!) we will have face masks for you.  

Contact Tracing
Everyone who attends the venue is required by law to register for contact tracing. QR codes will be available at the door so you can easily register with your phone. You can also manually sign in. By registering on arrival, you agree to follow our COVID-Safe plan and to follow direction from staff. 

Food & Beverage
The Penny Cook Bar will be open before and after each performance. Drinking is allowed while standing or seated in the foyer, and in the theatre. We ask that you maintain social distancing while in the foyer. 

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.
