UPDATE | 31.08.2021
Due to the ongoing heavy restrictions of the COVID-19 enforced Alert Levels, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel The Māori Sidesteps season that was scheduled to run from 8 – 18 September 2021. All affected ticket holders will be contacted directly to outline their options.
Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our show attendees, Friends, artists, staff and the wider community, so we will continue to follow all Government advice.
The Māori Sidesteps send their aroha to Ōtautahi and wish to thank everyone who supported the season.
Please join us in wishing the cast and crew all the best and we can’t wait to welcome them to The Court Theatre stage as soon as we can.

COVID-19 and Vaccination Information
The Court Theatre under current Covid-19 traffic light setting
Vaccination Passes are no longer required:
Under the current covid-19 ‘red’ traffic light setting, The Court Theatre now no longer requires visitors to have a current My Vaccine Pass for entry.
However, all visitors eight-years-old and over (as per Ministry of Health guidelines) are required to bring and wear a mask indoors within The Court Theatre premises. This applies whether in the auditorium, the foyer or the classroom. Unless you are medically exempt from wearing a mask, these can only be removed while eating or drinking.
These changes will enable us to maximise opportunities to operate at capacity, and as safely as possible, for our audience members, staff and cast members.
For more information, please refer to the Government's COVID-19 website for the most up to date information.
The Court Theatre and Vaccine Certificates
Under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, more commonly called the traffic light system, to be introduced soon, the Government has mandated that indoor events (such as performances) will require staff and customers to be fully vaccinated.
Once the Ministry of Health advises that Canterbury can move to the traffic light system, The Court Theatre will require visitors to have a current vaccination certificate for entry to shows, or to access food or beverage, for people 12-years-old and over. This will enable us to maximise opportunities to operate at capacity, and as safely as possible, for our audience members, staff and cast members.
We will follow Government guidelines pertaining to the use of exemption certificates.
If you are not vaccinated by the time of your booked performance, then we will follow our re-booking (for a performance after you have been fully vaccinated) or refund process.
The implementation for the COVID-19 Protection Framework is still in development. While this progresses, we want to give everyone enough time to get fully vaccinated so that, once it is implemented, we can begin to share our community life again.

This performance will be staged in our auditorium, where we're regularly sanitising surfaces, including cleaning seats and tables thoroughly between performances. We have also placed hand sanitiser dispensers throughout the foyer.
We also ask for your support in keeping our theatre clean and safe and encourage you, and all of our guests and employees, to:
- Always practice good hygiene and wash your hands frequently
- Place rubbish in the bin at the conclusion of your performance
- Cover coughs/sneezes, dispose of tissues and make use of the available hand sanitiser
- Refrain from attending the theatre if you're feeling unwell to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.
