Theatre Closure

The Athenaeum Theatre announces the cancellation or postponement of all scheduled performances until further notice.

Ticketek have advised The Athenaeum Theatre that they will contact all ticket holders to provide refunds and/or rescheduling your attendance. We encourage you to visit our website for updates.

We ask that ticket holders do not come to the Theatre as it will be closed to the public.
The decision to close the Theatre is based on advice issued by the Health Authorities in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Theatre will maintain communication with all employees, artists and hirers as the situation develops.

The Athenaeum Theatre cares deeply about the health and safety of its audiences, artists and staff and we believe this is a cautious and prudent response in an evolving situation.

We sincerely thank everybody for your understanding and patience as we work as hard as we can to help you during these difficult times.
