Babes in arms
Individual shows vary as to whether babes in arms are permitted.
Generally, for performances catering to adults and presented by Cairns Civic Theatre (not an outside presenter), children up to the age of two may sit on an adult’s lap. All children over the age of 12 months must buy a ticket to children’s shows. Please be considerate of other people in the theatre.
Much of our programming is suitable to children aged 10 and up, and some productions are fine for younger children. Please ask our box office staff if you have questions about the suitability of a production.
Please be on time
All performances begin promptly and there are no refunds for latecomers. Latecomers may have to wait until a suitable break in the performance to be seated. If you leave your seat during the performance, we may not be able to re-seat you until the interval.
Cameras and tape or video recorders are not permitted in the theatre. Please turn off mobile phones, personal stereos, beepers, pagers and wristwatch alarms.
Many people have environmental allergies. You can help by using scented product sparingly.
