Social Distance Series: Keeping you Safely Entertained

The Playhouse presents a series of intimate affairs show casing some of the Nelson Region and New Zealand’s best artists in an atmosphere like no other. Stripping artists back to their heart and soul as we keep you safely entertained.

The Playhouse is committed to assure we are up to date with the best practices laid out by the Ministry of health and other governing bodies over the COVID- 19 crisis. The classic Playhouse buffet is replaced by a 3 course gourmet menu allowing zero sharing of utensils, spreading out of tables to assure space between customers, repetitive sanitisation of all surfaces where germs spread, and single server service, plus a raft of other measures are being implemented to make sure we live up to these requirements at level 2.

We are also applying a no strings attached cancellation policy in case you decide you can no longer attend the show, however bookings are compulsory to maintain contact tracing.

Ticket prices vary from artist to artist, and all shows will be live streamed to allow people self isolating, sick or generally cautious to enjoy the shows. The live stream will allow people beyond the audience to participant and also donate to artists. Live streams will stay online after the event if people want to donate post show or have other engagements the night of the show.

We are having a level 2 soft opening on Saturday 16th May to allow staff and guests to get used to the new normal. Numbers will be very limited to this event.
