CoPs is back in the Theatre

At last, we can all get back to some kind of normal and start doing the things we love again.

For the time being we have made a few changes to enable us to safely reopen. In addition to a thorough deep cleaning, we will also be cleaning the theatre between each performance. We are also making the following changes for the safety of our audience, cast and crew...

  • Limiting our seating to HALF capacity so only 30 tickets to be sold for each performance to enable social distancing.
  • Audience members are encouraged to only book tickets for the people they wish to sit with, and the audience will be seated around the theatre to allow group distancing.
  • We will encourage our audience to wear masks as they move around the theatre.
  • Our audience will be greeted in our new outdoor Gazebo and can enter the theatre by either door. This will of course be available before the play and during the interval to reduce the normal crush.
  • Touch free antibacterial hand dispensers will be available around the theatre along with antibacterial surface wipes and hand gel in both toilets.
  • Windows and most doors to be left open during the performance along with the already installed air extraction system to ventilate the theatre.
  • At the interval and end of play, the audience will be asked to exit by rows to stop queuing by doors.

None of these extra plans should impact at all on your enjoyment of going to our theatre but we feel they are sensible extra measures to be taken at the moment. Audience members will receive complimentary Prosecco or Orange juice on arrival. Bottled water will be available at the interval and our programs will be single use. As usual the Car Park is available.

We hope to see you back at our theatre very soon. Our production of Pressure starts on Monday 26th July at 7.45 and runs until Friday 30th. It’s a great story and a superb cast so please come along for the grand re-opening!
