All updates regarding COVID-19 will be posted here for our patrons and community.

Update: Tuesday 24 March 2020

We are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and implementing appropriate measures based on the advice from health authorities. These are uncertain times, with significant impacts on the wellbeing and long-term viability of the arts and creative industries, including NORPA.

As the situation is constantly evolving, the information below is the best we are able to provide as of today, Tuesday 24 March.

For the safety of our staff and our community, from Tuesday 24 March, Lismore City Hall will be closed to visitors. The Box Office remains open and can be contacted via phone or email:

Box Office will make contact with ticket purchasers for the cancelled and postponed performances via email and/or phone. We’re working chronologically and as quickly as possible, your patience and kindness is appreciated.

This is a very challenging time for NORPA, arts workers and the wider industry. If you’re able, you can support us by choosing a gift voucher for future use or a tax-deductible contribution instead of a refund. Your generosity will help NORPA survive beyond this extraordinary scenario.

Theatre connects us and nurtures community.  As we navigate our way through this precarious time for NORPA and the wider arts community, we appreciate and thank you for your support.
