Notification regarding COVID-19 response.

Following the 18 March 2020 announcement of a national ban on indoor events with more than 100 people, the Council of Canberra Repertory Society (REP) has no option but to cease our productions until the bans are lifted. This is for the ongoing health and safety of our members, audiences, staff and volunteers. The end date for the bans has not yet been announced. Given that, REP will not be able to continue with its production of Brighton Beach Memoirs scheduled to run from 30 April to 16 May. Ticket sales will cease until such time as we are confident that we can safely present shows again. REP staff will be contacting all ticket holders to discuss their three options:


  1. Request a credit for the full value of the ticket for a production when we can resume;
  2. Request and receive a full refund of the ticket price; or
  3. Donate the price of the ticket to REP to help us maintain capacity to provide quality entertainment in the future.


Due to the uncertainty around the duration of the bans, we are currently unable to indicate which productions will go ahead this year and which, if any, will be cancelled. This is a dilemma facing arts organisations across the country and we seek your patience as we progress through this global pandemic. REP is monitoring advice from the Federal and Territory governments and will update information regularly as conditions change. Please take care of yourselves and watch this space for further information. We look forward to being able to present quality theatre to our community again soon.
