This week the NSW Government has introduced a new public health order which means that theatres – including The Joan – must operate at a reduced capacity and can only seat audiences to 50% of their capacity.  This order is currently in place until 11:59pm on Friday 2 July – and this could change at any time, along with the restrictions. Please monitor government advice for the most current updates.  Events scheduled during the period in which the health order is in effect will continue at the reduced capacity. Current tickets to these events are still valid. However if audience members have safety concerns, or are affected by stay-at-home orders or other impacts, we are offering some options. Please see our website for more information: thejoan.com.au/covid-safety  Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please stay safe and well.
