COVID19

LAST UPDATED 16 November

On this page:

  1. Traffic Light update
  2. Details on how Level Two works here
  3. Some general updates on what's happening to each specific show if you have tickets and haven't received our emails about them. Our website is generally right up-to-date though too with the current correct upcoming programme :-D

But before we begin, a general note:

No matter what, you can always purchase your ticket in confidence – you'll always be entitled to a refund, whether it's because you're a bit sick and are staying home (thank you), because the show got postponed due to alert levels and you can't make the new date, or even if your plans change and you just can't make the show anymore. You just need to get in touch with us.

Traffic Lights: (20 Nov 2021)

Kia ora December ticket holders

We received the news on Wednesday (perhaps you did too!) that it’s looking almost definite that we’ll be in the Traffic Light system in December.

We’re really excited that this means we can double our capacity which means the performers will get paid more fairly, the audience will be able to laugh in a crowded room without being muffled by masks, and no need to worry about social distancing. In short, it’s going to make the show so much better for the audience, the performers and the theatre management.

Now the tricky(?) part of this is it means we’re going to need to check your vaccine pass as you arrive.

We truly hate to turn anybody away. If you have opted not to get vaccinated, I would urge you to reconsider as we would REALLY love you to join us! However if you think, come the time of the show, that you won’t be able to produce a vaccine pass, then we offer a refund on your tickets – you just need to email ticketing@littleandromeda.co.nz with your order number (it's at the bottom of this email) and we’ll process it straight away with no questions asked. If you change your mind later and can get a certificate in time, we’ll even save a couple of spare seats just in case, that’s how much we’d love you to be here with the rest of us.

Thanks so much all of you for your support. We can’t wait to see you at the theatre :-)

Little A

P.S. extra capacity now – so tell all your friends, and remember for Toys there’s special pricing for groups of 10+!

Level Two at Little A

• The theatre is lower capacity and more spread out.

• Also feel free to arrive up to an hour early and order food and drink!

• we’ve got table and cluster groups of up to 10 socially distanced, we’ll ask you to sign into your table or cluster so we can track who’s been near each other. Please note you might end up at a table with people you don't know – but we get round this by logging what table you sat at so we've got every bubble logged for contact tracing.

• Significantly reduced capacity, so get your tickets quick!

• Wear face coverings except when you’re putting your beer or chips in your mouth. We’ll have face coverings on site if you don’t have one with you.

• Performers are not required to wear face coverings when performing but will stay at least a metre from the closest patrons.

• If you are at all sick, please stay at home – just email us and you’ll get a full refund. If you’re coughing during the show we will ask you to leave – we don’t even want to risk anyone catching a cold from you.

• The bar is open from an hour beforehand if you want to come in, grab your fave table, have dinner and start ordering! If you're at a table, Craft Embassy's FULL DINNER MENU is available, if you want to venture past the bar snacks! We keep delivering throughout and after the show too.

Pictionary

Unfortunately the Laser Kiwi team have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming performance of Pictionary at Little Andromeda.

The event which was bringing them to Christchurch has been cancelled so they will no longer be coming to the city.

We hope to bring them back to Little A sometime in 2022.

In the meantime your tickets will be refunded in full to the original place of purchase.

Ticket holders will receive a full refund.

Kath Bee and Ms Fizzberry will hopefully return to Little Andromeda sometime in the future - when life is slightly more normal!


By A Thread

Unfortunately Hwyl Theatre have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming season of By A Thread. Ticketholders have been contacted and will receive a full refund


Guy Montgomery By Name, Guy Montgomery By Nature

As this lockdown progresses it is becoming more and more unlikely that Guy will be allowed to leave Auckland in time to start the tour. We have postponed it once already in the hopes that we would progress through the alert levels more quickly than we have.

However, with each announcement it has become more apparent that this plan isn't going to work out in our favour.

So, Guy and his team have made the decision to postpone the tour until 2022.

All tickets will be refunded in full to the original place of purchase. This may take a few days.


Before Karma Gets Us
Unfortunately due to covid restrictions and the team being based in Auckland, Before Karma Gets Us will no longer go ahead. All ticket holders will be refunded to their original place of purchase.


The show will return to Little A in 2022

Bull Rush Improv

Bull Rush Improv will no longer go ahead. All ticket holders have been refunded.



Bull Rush returns in 2022

Thoroughly Modern Māui

After many rigorous hui, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel and refund your tickets for Thoroughly Modern Māui at Little Andromeda 2021.

With Auckland still at alert level 4 and the ever changing alert level restrictions for live events, we cannot lock down any potential return dates.We are still working ‘twenty-to-the-dozen’ to bring the show to Little A, but it’s unlikely to happen before Christmas.

We are hoping for a brighter year in 2022, where we intend to add Little A to a long list of venues we want to visit across Aotearoa. You’ll be the first to know when the show does return Ōtautahi, so please keep an eye out for more information as we hope you’ll join us again. Your refund will be processed over the next couple of days.

There is still plenty happening at Little A, so if you can please make sure you get along and support your local artists.

And in case you haven’t already, please go ahead and follow us on social media for the latest updates.
