Temporary Closure Of Theatre Due To COVID-19

It is with much disappointment that we inform our many loyal supporters that the Arts Theatre has been closed temporarily in line with Government Health Directives for Covid-19. The Board wants to assure all our patrons that the protection of the casts, crews, volunteers and wonderful audiences is our first priority. We will return when we can and look forward to seeing you when we can safely re open our doors.

This unfortunately means the cancellation or (hopefully) postponement of:

  • The Lion King Jr (Pelican Productions)
  • Crimes Of The Heart (Adelaide Rep)
  • Legally Blonde (Metropolitan Musical Theatre)
  • Titanic The Musical (Therry Dramatic Society)

  • Good People (Adelaide Rep)
  • Evita (Gilbert & Sullivan Society)

We trust you will be understanding and patient with us during this very trying and difficult time.
