Gerry Goffin & Carole King
Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil
Update 9 May 2022:
The scheduled summer musical, Beautiful, has been replaced with the previously Covid-cancelled RENT.
The many disruptions we’ve had already in the Ryman Healthcare 2022 season, and the ever-present risk of more, have meant that we do not feel that we can proceed with a work on the scale of Beautiful at present. We currently have no current plans to reschedule Beautiful.
Please contact the Box Office team on firstname.lastname@example.org in case of any questions.
This engrossing musical follows hit-maker Carole King as she begins her multi-award-winning music career in 1960s New York.
It features many of her biggest hits including "I Feel The Earth Move", "It’s Too Late", "You’ve Got A Friend" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", along with a number of other well-known pop hits from that era.
Beautiful: The Carole King Musical tells a story of love, success, heartbreak, and female empowerment. This New Zealand premiere of the international phenomenon is the summer musical you do not want to miss!
“At its heart, Beautiful is more than entertaining: it’s genuinely moving” – The Guardian

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.

Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our show attendees and supporters, artists, staff and the wider community.

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.
