We are closely following all Victorian Government health guidelines and will continue to update our procedures as necessary.

Seeing a show?

We’ve made a number of changes to our booking process and seating plans to help keep you safe:

  • Lighthouse Theatre is currently operating at full capacity
  • Our seating map is designed in line with the current Government regulations, but there will not be a gap or seat between you and others. Seating allocations may change at anytime and we do not guarantee the seat you purchased is the seat you will be sitting in.
  • Venue foyers and doors will open earlier than normal, and some shows will have modified intervals.
  • Refreshments will be available for purchase from our theatre bars. All drinks (except hot beverages) can be taken into the theatre for all performances.
