THEATRE NORTH STATEMENT ON IMPACTS FROM COVID-19
Updated Wed 24 June
Theatre North is one of many venue managers around Australia impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sadly, highly-anticipated performances and events from a range of local, national and international companies have been postponed or cancelled.
Theatre North is keenly aware of the safety of our audience, staff and artists, and are moving in line with government restrictions and industry advice.
At this time, we are planning to reactivate the theatre with a staged approach, beginning with theatre tours in July and small scale performance events in August/September.
We don’t anticipate any large scale performance until later in 2020 and into 2021.
Many of our larger shows have rescheduled for 2021, and we look forward to sharing their new dates in the next week or two.
