Current as of Tuesday, 4 August 2020.
The Malthouse is temporarily closed to the public until further notice. This decision has been made following a directive from Federal and State Government health authorities in line with Stage Four lockdown restrictions. We are still safely working behind the scenes at home to ensure we can resume performances as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so. The truth is, we don't know how this situation will unfold, but we're doing everything we can to bring theatre back to the stage.
We continue to follow the advice provided by State and Federal government health authorities.
WHAT ABOUT MY TICKETS?
Our limited Box Office team is safely working from home to manually process orders and make sure ticket holders of cancelled performances receive refunds or are moved into rescheduled performances when available. This is no small task and currently the team is experiencing delays of up to 8 weeks. Please refrain from emailing again to check on your request, as we are working through existing emails.
After careful consideration and assessment of the government's social distancing regulations to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have made the sad decision not to proceed with the productions scheduled in Season 2020, with the exception of Loaded at the end of the year. As of today, the situation for Season 2020 productions is as follows:
Grey Arias: Performances are not going ahead and refunds are completed.
Macbeth (This Ignorant Present): Performances are not going ahead and refunds are completed.
K-BOX: Performances are not going ahead and refunds are completed.
Is This A Room: Performances are not going ahead and refunds are completed.
Do not go gentle...: Performances are not going ahead and ticket buyers have been contacted.
The Return: Performances are not going ahead and ticket buyers have been contacted.
Prima Facie: Performances are not going ahead and ticket buyers have been contacted.
Go To Hell: Performances are not going ahead and ticket buyers have been contacted.
Loaded: Performances will continue as scheduled.
Refunds will be returned to the credit card used to place the original order. If an order was paid for by cash or EFTPOS our Box Office team will be in contact to arrange the refund. The Box Office is not available for contact by phone, and we ask for everyone’s patience, kindness, and understanding during this busy time.
HOW CAN I HELP?
If you want to help, and support the artists and arts workers that bring theatre to our stages, please consider donating what you can. Your donations at this critical time ensure we have a future and can keep creating while our doors are closed.
We’re encouraged by the tenacious spirit of the arts community. Malthouse Theatre has always been a home for entertainment and discussion, and we will do everything we can to continue contributing to our vibrant artistic city over the coming months.
Please be kind and take care of yourselves and each other.
