Impact on Regent Theatre & Clarkson Studio events


The health and wellbeing of our team and everyone who visits our venue is our priority.  The Regent Theatre continues to follow Ministry of Health guidelines for gatherings and public events, whilst being mindful of potential escalation and the impact of reduced notice periods on all stakeholders.

With our box office open, we ask people follow Ministry of Health advice and stay home if they are feeling unwell, practice good coughing and sneezing hygiene, wear a mask and frequently wash or sanitise your hands. It is now mandatory to wear a mask and record everyone 12 years and older that visits the theatre. We have systems in place to assist you to record your details, both manually and by scanning our QR code if you have the NZ COVID Tracer app on your mobile device.

Guideline to Attending Shows

  • Due to our current covid alert levels, in order for the theatre to continue to operate, our audience numbers have been restricted to support you to be able to take seats suitably spaced from other patrons. With general admission tickets, we expect you to adhere to the regulations around appropriate distancing and support our staff by finding an appropriate seat within the theatre, ensuring there is a one metre distance between yourself or your group and the next. Staff will be available to provide support and information.
  • If you feel unwell it is not advisable to attend a public event. Please stay home or if you have been asked to isolate.
  • We strongly encourage you to wear a face covering.
  • Scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer App.
  • Please do not arrive late. Allow time for scanning in, purchasing tickets or food and beverages and finding your seats.
  • Everyone attending events need to keep a safe distance from people they do not know, please try to remain one metre away from each other.
  • Avoid congregating or gathering at entrances or in shared spaces such as the bathroom.
  • If you need to pay for your food or drinks, use contactless payment options if possible.
  • Follow the venue’s safety measures and stay in your allocated or general admission seat. Most of all though, please enjoy the event and the experience of being able to view from within our beautiful auditorium.
