In line with the Government’s latest guidance, Norwich Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two will remain closed until further notice. Our Box Office phone service will remain open from 1pm-6pm Monday-Friday while online booking continues as normal.
We are currently working with a large number of promoters and producers to reschedule as many events as possible to future dates. Please do not contact our Box Office or Social Media team in relation to specific shows, if the event you have booked tickets for is not listed below it means we are still trying to re-schedule it. All ticket holders will be contacted directly either by phone or email to let them know if the show/event they booked has been re-scheduled or cancelled.
Important information about Les Misérables – We would like to reassure all ticket holders that we are working closely with Cameron Mackintosh Ltd, the producer of Les Misérables , and are using our best efforts to try to find an alternative date. But as you can imagine rescheduling a large-scale production such as Les Misérables is a very complex process. All ticket holders will be contacted directly about credits and refunds but due to the sheer number of ticket holders this may take a few weeks so please bear with us.
Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and patience.
Here you will find all the latest updates on shows affected by the Coronavirus crisis.

For rescheduled performances, customers’ original tickets will be valid for the re-arranged date and ticket holders will receive an email confirmation in due course. For cancelled performances, our Box Office team will get in touch with all ticket holders to arrange a refund or a credit note.
As our teams are now migrating to remote working, our Box Office phone service will be available at reduced hours while online booking continues as normal. With immediate effect all tickets will automatically be print-at-home e-tickets. For customers who are not able to print-at home, the e-ticket will also be available via mobile phone. If neither options are available to you, please book tickets via our Box Office phone service and they will post paper tickets to you.

In light of the advice to the public issued by the government on Monday 16th March it is with regret that I announce that planned performances at Theatre Royal, Playhouse and Stage Two will not take place until further notice.
Learning & Participation activities will take place as usual for now though please check our website and social media for updates. Participants will be directly informed of any changes if necessary.
Following discussion with our staff teams, and with their support and agreement, Prelude at Theatre Royal will open for day service only and Playhouse Bar will open as usual all day until further notice.
Whilst we will absolutely support the Government’s new advice around social distancing, I ask our customers and visitors to understand that this new advice was delivered to us at the same time as it was announced publicly yesterday, was not accompanied by any specific and more detailed instructions and is without precedent. We are working through the significant consequences and outcomes of this for our staff and customers as quickly as we can and we will keep you updated through our website and social media.
I would ask that customers do not contact our Box Office in relation to shows not taking place. We are currently working with a large number of promoters and producers to explore all options and we will be in touch with you as soon as we are able.
Thank you in advance for your patience as this could take some weeks as we also, at the same time, look to abide by the Governments guidance to us as an employer which will mean running a skeleton and dispersed Box Office team shortly.
I believe that times of crisis can make us stronger in the end if we all look after each other. I am making a commitment to looking after our customers once we have a plan for the performances that are not going ahead and would ask that our customers help me to look after our staff by being patient until we make contact.
Many thanks for your understanding.
