At Griffin, our priority is delivering the very best new Australian plays. And now that theatres across New South Wales are opening up like colourful spring blossoms, we’re determined to give our audiences the theatre they’ve been craving for the past few months. To ensure the safety, comfort and enjoyment of your theatre experience, we all need to play our part. Which is why we’ve developed a comprehensive COVID-Safe plan in accordance with current government regulations to make sure we can do what we do best—deliver amazing and urgent Australian stories, live on stage.
Have a read of our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about the measures we’re putting in place to ensure a safe grand re-opening. If you’ve still got questions, feel free to reach out to Griffin’s wonderful Box Office team at [email protected], or on (02) 9361 3817.
At Griffin, we’ve faced months of uncertainty, changing plans and moments of resilience, which has meant for the moment at least, we’re being cautious. We’ve chosen to partner with our good friends at the Seymour Centre in Chippendale by hosting Superheroes by Mark Rogers and Wicked Sisters by Alma De Groen at the venue’s Reginald Theatre. Our decision to transport the Griffin spirit across town to the Seymour Centre is to ensure audience and artist comfort. We adore our tiny theatre on Nimrod Street, but it’s a very old and very tiny building (you should see the dressing room!). We hope to be back at the Stables as soon as the time feels right to be staging work in an intimate space, but in the meantime, we think change is as good as a holiday! There will always be a familiar Grif-face at our temporary home of the Seymour Centre to make sure you feel right at home. Plus, we’re working closely with our friends at the Seymour to ensure your theatre experience is a fantastic one!
Visiting the Seymour Centre
Access at the Seymour Centre
While it’s entirely your call as to whether you join us at the theatre, you can rest assured that both Griffin and the Seymour Centre are doing everything we can to ensure your theatre experience is a safe one.
For Griffin, the wellness and comfort of our audience is of utmost importance. During your visit to the Seymour Centre, here’s what you can expect:
By cooperating with the aforementioned requirements of Griffin’s COVID-Safe plan, you can play your role in ensuring that everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience during their visit to the Seymour Centre. By planning ahead, by wearing your face mask, and by remaining diligent about social-distancing within the venue, you can help us comply with government guidelines easily! Also, if you aren’t feeling well on the day of the performance, and are experiencing signs of illness (including a runny nose, a cough, high temperature or are feeling run-down), we’d appreciate it if you stayed home! Simply email a member of the Griffin Box Office at [email protected], or give them a call on (02) 9361 3817, and they’ll happily organise a ticket exchange, credit or refund for you. Your wellness is our priority—if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us!
If you are unable to attend a performance due to illness, we will try and find you a ticket for an alternative performance. Otherwise, we will refund the cost of your ticket, or offer you a Griffin credit.
If you are not ready to come back to the theatre yet, and already have a ticket booked, we are more than happy to offer you a full refund or credit, to stockpile some Griffin goodness for a rainy day down the track. All credit notes are valid for three years, so we’re sure there will be a future show that tickles your theatrical fancy!
