COVID-19 Information: Attending an event at The Odeon

Here at The Odeon we are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patrons, artists and staff at all times.
Please understand that restrictions can change quickly. We are doing all we can to make sure we provide you with the most up-to-date information.
Please view our full COVID-Safe plan here.

We ask that when attending The Odeon, you abide by the signage and staff advice in reference to social distancing regulations.

Do not attend The Odeon if you are experiencing any of the following:
cold or flu-like symptoms, fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath.


Do I need to wear a mask?
Wearing a mask is recommended by SA Health at this time, and we are strongly recommending that you wear one.  Some masks will be available at the theatre if you cannot bring your own.

When should I arrive?
To avoid congestion, we recommend that you do not arrive more than 30 minutes before your show.
The Odeon foyer has a limited capacity, so we also ask when you arrive to go straight into the theatre and take your seat.  There will be clear signage and front-of-house staff to direct you.

How is The Odeon adhering to social distancing?
We aim to ensure that anyone who moves in, or around, The Odeon keeps at least a 1.5m distance when possible. Current venue capacity requirements of 2 square meters per person are also in place.

In the theatre itself, we will be operating at 50% capacity and seating patrons in a checkerboard formation. This means that patrons will have a single seat surrounding them in each direction, and not be 1.5m from each other. This is in line with current advice that arts venues have received from SA Health.

What about other COVID-19 safeguards?
As part of the ongoing safety protocols at The Odeon we will provide hand sanitising stations at each entry point. We have also increased our cleaning procedures, with ‘high-touch’ areas being sanitised at regular intervals.

We encourage anyone visiting The Odeon to always act in a COVID-safe manner for the safety of everyone. This includes, but is not limited to, washing hands before and after bathroom use and sanitising regularly.

Will the bar for snacks or drinks before the show?
In line with current public health advice the bar at The Odeon will be closed and not serving any patrons.

We want everyone who enters The Odeon to have a safe and enjoyable visit. Please be aware of those around you and the COVID-Safe protocols in place.
We can’t wait to welcome you soon!
