Doors to the theatre open half an hour before the performance starts. Half an hour is plenty of time to collect tickets, get a programme, buy a drink and catch your breath – before we take it away again.

If you arrive late you may be asked to wait until a suitable break in the performance before you enter and sometimes you may not be able to enter at all. This will be clearly stated on your ticket.
