The health and wellbeing of our patrons, whānau and communities is our priority. While we perform under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, we are implementing additional measures to comply with government guidelines. Here is what you need to know ahead of your visit.
For the safety of all, ASB Waterfront Theatre has adopted mandatory vaccination, which will require a valid My Vaccine Pass (MVP) for entry into our venue for everyone of eligible age (currently 12 year and three months). Everyone will be required to bring and present their My Vaccine Pass and photo ID to staff prior to entering.
If you are unable to provide a valid My Vaccine Pass you will not be able to attend our performances or enter ASB Waterfront Theatre.
Contract Tracing / Record Keeping
Everyone aged 12 or over entering the venue will be required to check in using the COVID-19 Tracer app or manual sign-in system. Each visitor needs to sign-in individually.
Tickets will now be scanned at the main entry doors of the building. If you are collecting tickets from the theatre box office, you will be directed to the box office on entry.
Mask Wearing / Face Coverings
All visitors are required to wear a face covering at all times during their visit, unless they are under 12 years of age, are consuming food and beverage or are exempt from wearing a mask.
Exemptions: (a) there is an emergency; or (b) the person is communicating with a person who is deaf or hard of hearing and visibility of the mouth is essential for communication; or (c) the person is asked to remove the face covering to ascertain identity; or (d) the person is under the age of 12 years; or (e) the person has a physical or mental illness or condition or disability that makes wearing a face covering unsuitable; or (f) the person needs to remove the face covering to take medicine; or (g) the person needs to remove the face covering to eat or drink
Our box office, bar and coat check are no longer accepting cash, but will accept payment via Eftpos, Visa, Master Card and Debit cards.
Please play your part in helping keep everyone safe by sanitising your hands at the on-site sanitiser stations prior to entry and where possible, maintaining a one-metre distance from staff and other people.
All artists, volunteers, contractors, and staff working inside ASB Waterfront Theatre hold a My Vaccine Pass. Our staff will also be wearing facemasks.
We have enhanced cleaning regimes in place.
Audience Capacity Restrictions
There is capacity of 100 audience members per performance under the COVID-19 red Protection Framework. There are no capacity restrictions under orange and green. We will be in touch if anything changes.
We ask that you and your guests make a reasonable assessment of your health status before attending a performance.

We will be offering refunds to ticket holders if they are unable to attend due to this requirement.
