Performances at Theatre New Brunswick’s Open Space Theatre (55 Whiting Road)

Due to very limited seating capacity owing to physical distancing requirements, seat reservations are highly recommended. To reserve a seat, email nbacts@unb.ca. Under the province of New Brunswick’s State of Emergency regulations requiring records of all persons entering a business for contact tracing purposes, your reservation must include the following:

-full names of all persons attending, as well as a phone number/email for each person

-indicate whether the persons attending are in a “bubble” (ie. Can they sit together in the theatre?)

Because we have so few seats available for shows with only one performance each, we ask that you please honour your seat reservation.

On performance night/afternoon, please

-arrive 15 minutes before show time. Audience members will wait outside the theatre until you are seated by an usher.

masks are required when entering and leaving the theatre, but may be removed when seated.

-please note that washroom facilities are available at the theatre, but it will make things easier for all if they are used as little possible, so please go before you come!

-depending on the event, performances will run in total in the range of 90 minutes (with no intermission) or 2 hours (with an intermission).

(corner of Queen and Carleton Streets, downtown Fredericton, 7:30 PM July 23, 25, 29, & 31)

Due to limited seating capacity owing to physical distancing requirements, seat reservations are  recommended.
