Your guide to having the best experience at Theatre Royal Sydney
A Safe Space For Everyone
We love entertainment, and in our world, everyone has a part to play. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment which provides a welcoming and safe place to visit. Discriminatory or anti-social behaviour of any kind are not welcome here. If you experience any, we will take action. We take pride in showing compassion and care to everyone who visits our venue and believe that everyone, including our employees, are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity.
Arrive On Time (Or Better Yet, Arrive Early!)
We don’t want anyone to miss even a moment of their performance, but most productions do have a lock out period to avoid disruption to the opening moments of the show. We encourage all patrons to arrive at least 30 minutes before the time listed on their ticket. This will give you time to check out the facilities, visit the bar, browse the merchandise stand, and take your seat with time to spare.
Anything larger than an A4 piece of paper (or a standard handbag or briefcase) must be cloaked and cannot be taken into the auditorium. Our complimentary cloakroom facilities will also take care of any umbrellas, back packs, or other oversized items you may need to store whilst attending a performance.
Phones On Silent Please
Checking emails, texts, or social media throughout the performance can be very disruptive for your fellow audience members and the performers on stage. We encourage all patrons to turn their mobile devices to silent mode (or off!) and refrain from using them throughout the show.
Save The Photos For The Foyer
We absolutely want you to share your visit to the venue and your experience at the show. Photos in the foyer or in the auditorium preshow, at interval, or post show are encouraged. Filming, sound recordings, and photography throughout the performance is not permitted. Some productions may allow photography during the Curtain Call – you will be advised if this allowed.
Dress to Impress
There is no official dress code for Theatre Royal Sydney. Most people will dress smart casual; however, some guests may choose to use the event as an opportunity to dress up. We want you to enjoy your experience and be comfortable. We kindly ask you wear appropriate clothing and footwear at all times.
Listen and Enjoy
The performers on stage have been working hard to bring you the best possible performance. Talking or singing along is disruptive for both those on stage and around you. Show your appreciation through applause and cheering at the Curtain Call. The end of show is the best time to leap to your feet!
Ask For Help
Our staff are here to assist you. If you have any questions or concerns throughout your time in the venue, please do not hesitate to approach a member of our team.
