1. Age recommendation
The show is recommended for persons 10 years of age and above. All persons entering the theatre, regardless of age, must have a ticket. Children under 4 are not permitted in the theatre due to the length of the production and impact of some scenes.
Please note that children under the age of 15 require the accompaniment of an adult to be admitted to the theatre, to ensure suitable care is provided throughout the entire production.
2. Lockout period
We encourage patrons to be in their seats at least 15 minutes prior to the ticketed show start time. A strict lockout period applies at the commencement of each act. Patrons arriving late will not be admitted until intermission if a suitable break in the performance is unavailable after the patron’s arrival.
