COVID-19 Update

Gaslight Season Relocation to Her Majesty's Theatre

State Theatre Company South Australia is pleased to be returning to the theatre, following the easing of social distancing measures in South Australia. From 4 September 2020, we’ll welcome back our audience with our reimagined production of Patrick Hamilton’s classic thriller Gaslight.

To accommodate our audiences in an appropriately and comfortably distanced way, we will be relocating the production from the Dunstan Playhouse to Her Majesty’s Theatre on Grote Street, Adelaide.

The decision to relocate has been made due to the federal and state governments’ public health advice in dealing with the risk of spreading novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the recent State Government release of the Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions. More information can be found at covid-19.sa.gov.au. It is important to note that the plans may change, as we respond to the advice from regulatory authorities and will act following government recommendations. The health and safety of our audiences and employees are of the utmost importance.

Ticket Holders

All audience members who currently hold tickets for Gaslight will be automatically re-seated in Her Majesty’s Theatre according to social distancing guidelines, with comparable seats allocated where possible. Tickets will be issued to all patrons by 6 August 2020.

Should you have concerns about your tickets, please contact BASS on 131 246. Full ticketing terms and conditions can be found here.

Audience members can access current venue safety and sanitisation on the Adelaide Festival Centre website. To purchase tickets for Gaslight, or for more information about the performances, click here. These pages will be updated with any new information you need to know about attending the performance. Any significant changes to the presentation of the season, ticketing or health advice will be emailed directly to ticket holders.


Due to the closure of the Adelaide Festival Centre, we have cancelled our seasons of The Gospel According to Paul, Single Asian Female, Euphoria, The 7 Stages of Grieving and The Writer.

The seasons in our Stateside program have also had some changes, with Theatre Republic’s performances of The Bleeding Tree rescheduled to December 2020.

Stateside Changes

The Bleeding Tree – Theatre Republic

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the long-term impact of Covid-19 on the local theatre sector, Theatre Republic has decided to delay their production of The Bleeding Tree by Angus Cerini.

The new season dates will be: 9 December to 19 December 2020.

The production will be presented at the Ngunyawayiti Space at Tandanya, the National Aboriginal Cultural Institute.

If you have purchased tickets as part of a subscription, BASS will be in contact with you to assist with transferring your tickets over to a new date. If you are unable to see the show in December, you will be entitled to a full refund.
