How to Theatre
WHAT TO WEAR
Unlike the days of old, you no longer need to get all dressed up to come to the theatre - but we'd love it if you did! We encourage you to wear whatever you're comfortable with - a 'smart casual' approach always works for a night at The Court. Don't forget to bring a coat during winter, as our foyer can get a little nippy!
PHONES & PHOTOGRAPHY
To avoid disrupting the performance, please put your phone on silent and don't use it during the show. Photography and filming are prohibited during showtime, due to copyright laws and so as you don't disturb the performers and audience members around you.
We encourage you to take a snap out in our foyer, though - and if you're attending a kids show, our performers will be waiting after the show to take snaps with your little ones!
