Important updates regarding COVID-19

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

Update: Thursday 1 October

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.

The NSW Government recently announced changes to the restrictions for Cinemas, Theatres and Entertainment Venues. Audience capacity has increased to 50%. All performances must be seated and 1-2 seats will remain vacant between groups. This is an exciting change and will see more performances happening at Lismore City Hall in the future.

For the safety of our staff and our community Lismore City Hall remains closed to visitors, except for during scheduled events. The Box Office can be contacted via phone or email on Tuesdays and Wednesdays:

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 and our community of artists, creatives and crew thrive on the other side of 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.
