Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The safety of our staff is of the upmost importance to us so sadly, due to the recent developments, we have decided to close our offices with immediate effect. 

We are committed to keeping you updated as things develop. So please do check our website for all the show changes and details that are available.

Please don't worry as all refunds will be honoured and we will continue to process all your requests as soon as possible.

Our telephone lines are not currently being manned, however all emails received will be picked up but may be subject to delay in a response.

Thank you for your patience. The curtain will rise again.

See below for show updates, cancellations and rescheduled events.

The safety of our audience and workforce is paramount to us as we navigate this challenging time. We, therefore, regret to announce that as of today The Old Rep Theatre will close in light of the most recent official government advice. We will remain closed until further notice and will re-open as soon as possible, following government recommendations. 

If you have bought tickets to a show that has been cancelled, then you are entitled to a refund/exchange we will be in touch. Please bear with us during this time. 

The magic of theatre lies in its live performances and it is not something that can be experienced in the same way remotely. Its ability to lift people and entertain people even in times of difficulty is unparalleled and so we are extremely grateful to all of our audiences, who have continued to support us for as long as they can. 

At this time, we must come together to support each other. Theatre as an industry relies on its audiences entirely to exist. We will rely on you now more than ever.  

Many theatres that have been forced to cancel performances are charitable enterprises and have reached out to their audiences and asked for their support by donating their tickets. While ticket holders are all entitled to a refund for cancelled performances, the financial toll that refunding these tickets will have on small, charitably funded theatres is vast. We urge anyone who can afford to donate the cost of their ticket to show their support for our industry by doing so.
