GCLT has implemented the following Covidsafe regulations when attending the theatre. Your patience during this difficult time is appreciated.
SIGNAGE: We ask all patrons to follow all directions from our volunteers, signage and markings around the theatre.
CAPACITY: To allow for social distancing, the audience capacity is capped at 70. Seats can be booked in blocks of 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 seats. Please book the entire block you select (not just some of the seats) to help us meet Covid regulations.
CLEANING: We undertake a thorough daily clean and sanitise after every performance.
PREORDER DRINKS: We have a pre-order service for intermission refreshments to reduce movements throughout the theatre. Please complete an order form and hand over to the bar staff where you will be able to pay via cash or card, we will then bring you your refreshments to your seat.
WELLNESS: Please do not attend the performance if you are feeling unwell and practice good hygiene including hand washing and santising. It is not a requirement however, we do encourage the use of face masks and coverings while in the auditorium.
Thank you for your understanding as we negotiate this difficult time!

Never been to Gold Coast Little Theatre before? We’re pretty easy to find.
Our theatre is located at 21a Scarborough St, Southport, right behind the Westpac Bank. Turn left immediately after Westpac Bank and follow the driveway to access our carpark.
The G:link Southport South tram station is located a very short walk to the theatre (approx 150m) and operates frequent services. Check the G:Link timetable.
We have plenty of onsite parking at GCLT. Parking costs $4 for 12 hours (as the land is owned by another entity).
You can access the carpark via the entrance on Scarborough Street opposite the tram station (please don’t drive or park down GCLT’s driveway).
There’s a ticket dispensing machine about 25 metres inside the gate, which is open 24 hours a day. You can also buy tickets on your phone – see the signs onsite to do this.
Our bar is open prior to the performance, during interval and after the show. We serve wine, beer, soft drinks, water, tea, coffee light snacks and more. EFTPOS is available.
If you’d like to enjoy a meal before the show, try the Southport RSL or the restaurants in the Sundale precinct (approximately 650m away).
Programs are available for $4-$6 and can be purchased at Box Office or the bar.
We also hold a raffle at every show with tickets from $2. Cash or EFTPOS is accepted. Funds raised from these efforts help offset the theatre’s costs of purchasing productions rights, costumes, building maintenance and more. Thank you so much for supporting Gold Coast Little Theatre.
Seating for people with a disability is available for all shows on request to the Box Office (until booked out). These seats can be booked by phoning Box Office on 5532 2096 and are not available online. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Mobility impaired audience members may be dropped at the entrance of the theatre. We recommend you arrive early to do this so as not to block the driveway too long. A chairlift is also available at the theatre entrance and we are happy to help you with this.
