- Help! I have never been to the theatre
Welcome for your first theatre experience! There are no real rules, but some tips for you to enjoy your first visit include not talking loudly or using your mobile phone during the performance. One thing you can do loudly is applaud the performance and performers love this. If you are not sure when to applaud, just follow what others are doing. Talk to our friendly front of house staff if you have any questions and most of all - enjoy!
