COVID-19 Circa Update

A quick hug









12 May 2020

Circa Theatre is so proud of the leadership of the New Zealand government as Aotearoa moves to Level 2 on Thursday. We hope you enjoy a “quick hug with your mates” as much as we will.
Circa productions are still on hold under Level 2 as we prepare for our opening in the future. In the interim we’re continuing our initiatives like Lockdown Live and our commissioned work. The building will be used by some staff who require access to materials in the building.
We’ll also slowly begin to get artists back in the building to rehearse in preparation to put on a show for audiences when we’re able. Our teams will be following all of the health guidelines and we’ll be following a strict sign in and sign out process for staff and contractors.
The Circa Theatre cafe is currently assessing the situation and we’ll let the public know when are plans are to reopen.
We’re so grateful for the overwhelming support we’ve received over the past few weeks. If you’d like to support Circa or sign up to be a Friend of Circa, you can do so here: https://www.circa.co.nz/support-us/
We’ll be in touch again soon with more updates.
