Following the government’s announcement  yesterday Aotearoa will be moving into ‘RED’ from 11:59pm on 23 January 2022.  The committe want to assure you that the safety of our patrons and staff is our top priority and we will be following all government regulations in order to ensure that 16th Ave Theatre  is a safe and comfortable environment for everyone.

All ticket sales for 12 Angry Men have been suspended, and in order to effect social distancing in the auditorium, our audience capacity has been reduced to 65, and we have added another performance on Tuesday 25th January.

Ticket holders who purchased their tickets over the last two weeks for the performances Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th January have been transferred to Tuesday 25th January.   Tickets for Friday 28th and Saturday are not effected.

ITicket will be contacting those ticket holders who have been transferred to Tuesday to notify them of this change.   If you are not able to make it to this performance, please contact iTicket for a full refund.

We realise that this is very short notice, but unfortunately the government only gave us a few hours to come up with a contingency plan and in consultation with iTicket it was established that this was the easiest and fairest way to do this.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvencience and look forward to seeing at the theatre this week..

If you are coming to a performance this week, here is a reminder of the steps to follow when coming to the theatre.

  • Show us your ‘My Vaccine Pass‘ on arrival,
  • wear a mask,
  • scan in using the NZ Covid Tracer app,
  • sanitize your hands,
  • maintain social distancing.
  • and please stay home if you are feeling unwell.

Our experienced Front of House staff will show you to your seats when you arrive at the theatre.   Please be patient and follow their instructions.    We know this is frustrating, but we are excited to still be able to continue performing for you.

Thank you for continuing to support your local community theatre, and we look forward to seeing you.

Heather  (President)
