As we all move carefully back into more social activity and community living Greenwich Theatre is planning for a busy future.
Following government advice, we undertake a thorough review of health and safety on a regular basis. In line with the most recent guidelines we have now re-opened our telesales and in person Box Office on Crooms Hill. This is with limited opening hours: Thursday to Saturday 2pm to 6pm. Only one member of our team will work in the box office so please bear with them when it gets busy. Online information and booking, now on our wonderful new website and booking system, is open 24 hours a day.
Our studio theatre and main auditorium will soon be open for socially distanced performances. We’ll more details to ticket holders before each show as the we’re constantly updating our procedures but here are some of the new changes: Our Box Office and Bar have wonderful new clear screens to protect you and our team. We’ll provide hand sanitiser and the theatre will be cleaned throughout the day to keep all surfaces safe. Contactless payment is encouraged to avoid the need to handle cash. We will ask everyone to please wear a face covering at all times when inside the building unless you have contacted us in advance to tell us you are exempt. After buying drink from our bar please find a suitable space and feel free to remove your mask to drink. Toilets will be open but limited to one household or group at a time. You’ll find space markers on the floor as well as other guidance, so please be vigilant and follow the instructions. Our staff team are there to help and enforce the safety guidelines so please don’t be offended if we need to remind you about the new rules.
Many customers have already been in touch to donate tickets to postponed performances to the theatre. We hope many more will do the same by simply leaving the ticket unused. Others have made additional donations through our website and these are received with an overwhelming gratitude and thanks. We are, like theatres worldwide, in a real battle for our future. We believe that future can be great, important and soon to start. But the support we’ve seen so far needs to grow if we are to remain a home to the diverse and inspiring theatre we love. Please think about and choose to join us by becoming a Friend of the Theatre. We are also still, for a short time, offering the very special opportunity to inscribe a clay tablet that will join others inscribed by supporters over the last fifty years.
We look forward to seeing you soon
From all at Greenwich Theatre
