Circa at Orange 🟠 As of 14th April 2022, we’ve opened our doors back up again to full houses. We are not requiring audiences to present vaccine passes, which are no longer mandatory under the Covid-19 Protection Frame Work. These are the protection methods we still have in place at Circa: 

  • Masks will be worn by audiences and staff under all Traffic Light settings. 
  • Circa is thoroughly cleaned each day. 
  • All Circa staff and volunteer ushers are fully vaccinated. 

Circa reiterates that if you do feel unwell, please stay at home. If any of these changes impact your ability to come to see a show and you would like to cancel your booking please email circa@circa.co.nz to get a full refund. 

The Circa Restaurant & Bar will be operating under Orange. If you would like to book in advance, please contact the Restaurant team on (04) 801 7996 to avoid disappointment on the night. 

We are monitoring the situation in these early days of change and may reinstate the requirement to present a vaccine pass if need be. We’re open to feedback on this new approach. Please contact us on circa@circa.co.nz to share any thoughts, requests, or concerns. 

Thanks for your support of live theatre at this time and we hope we will see you soon!
