Staying Safe

What we are doing for you:

  • We are reminding our staff and hirers (including performers and backstage crew) about safe and hygienic event practices.

What we expect and hope for from you:

  • If you are feeling unwell, please return home and follow the Ministry of Health guidelines.
  • If you have been overseas OR in contact with anyone who has been overseas in the last 14 days, please return home.
  • Please practise social distancing and abandon traditional hand, hugging and kissing greetings.
  • Please take note of the Ministry of Health Covid-19 prevention reminder posters throughout The PumpHouse Theatre.
  • We will be checking that each person entering our theatre is well and of good health. Please don’t be offended if we ask you to leave.
