Attending the Theatre

We are looking forward to seeing many of you back in the theatre.  We highly recommend, for your own safety that you purchase tickets online, in advance.  Our new ticketing system will enforce COVID-Safe seating, i.e. with one seat between each seating ‘bubble’ – you will be reminded only to book tickets seated directly next to others with whom you feel very ‘COVID safe’.

We will not be dealing in cash sales at the theatre. Payment for tickets at the Ticket Box will only be via credit card – we apologise for any inconvenience. If you already have ‘Reserve-Pay Later’ tickets for the show, you will receive an automated email requesting that you confirm your booking by paying for the tickets online. You do not have to contact our Ticket Secretary.

Please be aware of the following procedures which are mandated under our COVID-Safe plan, to keep you, our cast, crew and volunteer workers safe in the theatre:

Procedure for Entering the Theatre

When you arrive, you should sanitise your hands, show your ticket as usual, and also ‘sign in’. You must provide your first and last names and a phone number at this point, even if you have already provided these details when booking tickets. You should preferably sign in via the Service Victoria App using our QR Code, and follow the prompts.

For details of the app, go to

We recommend that you download the app before coming to the theatre, and link your COVID Vaccination Certificate to the app. Conditions around how data is kept by Service Victoria are detailed on their website. As with this app, Malvern will destroy the check-in details you have provided in hard-copy after 28 days, if there’s no outbreak of COVID-19 at the venue.

Once your ticket has been checked, you have signed in, and shown proof of full vaccination or exemption from being vaccinated, you may proceed into the theatre. Please follow the directions of our COVID-Marshal and Front-of-House staff.


Patrons will be required to show proof of full vaccination or exemption from being vaccinated, to attend the show. This is in line with the Victorian Government directive for live theatre. 

The performance will last approximately 2.5 hours, with a 15-minute break, for you to stand up and stretch. Please do not leave the auditorium, if you do not need to do so. The toilets will be available as usual, but please note the restrictions on the number of people in each space at the one time.

Late-comers will not be admitted. Please note the commencement time of your performance carefully. All doors will already be open, so that you do not have to touch them.

All common contact points throughout the venue will have been thoroughly cleaned to a very high hygiene level, as required under our COVID-Safe plan.

We hope you enjoy the show, and feel safe to do so!
