THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre (DRTCC) was built to serve the community, in good times and in challenging times.
Although the doors have temporarily closed for public-facing activity – we can assure you that staff are available to respond to public enquiries whether it be over the phone, email or through social media.
“Throughout this time of disruption and uncertainly the high-level of customer service that our award-winning team is known for, will be a constant. Our key focus remains on the health and wellbeing of artists, audiences, visitors and valued staff,” said DRTCC Manager Linda Christof.
The majority of staff are working from home, and essential operations are continuing on site in line with the latest government advice, including building works, maintenance and security.
“We’ll also be posting on-line inspiring new works by previous artists, nostalgic flashbacks and gift voucher giveaways so please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and visit drtcc.com.au,” Ms Christof said.
Staff are busy behind-the-scenes liaising with producers, promoters and event co-ordinators to re-schedule bookings.
“Interestingly 75% of all performances have chosen a Plan B and rescheduled to the end of the year rather than cancel. In some cases they have opted to also have a Plan C for 2021 dates depending on government restrictions in place—all of this is in line with the catchphrase the show must go on. Rescheduled shows include Ian Moss, Mark Vincent, The Gruffalo’s Child, Mirusia and Ahn Do to name a few,” she said.
We would like to remind patrons that if you have been affected by a change in an event date and we haven’t already done so, we’ll contact you directly to arrange exchanges or a full refund. If you have tickets for an event after 17 June, please wait for further updates before getting in touch. Your patience is appreciated as our team works through this process.
Mayor of the Dubbo Region, Councillor Ben Shields, is happy that the DRTCC team has been able to reschedule bookings, to accommodate patrons.
“It means the calendar is going to be jam-packed with so many events that people will be spoilt for choice. We also know the economic-multiplier effect the theatre has in the region so it will be a good boost to the local economy having people out and about once the restrictions have been lifted,” Councillor Shields said.
Tickets and gift certificates are on sale now from drtcc.com.au or the Theatre Box Office on 6801 4378
