When should I arrive?
The Theatre doors open at 19h00 and all guests must be seated by 19h45 pm.

What is the latest arrival time you allow?
The show starts at 20h15; as it is a sequence of acts with a 3 course dinner timed to the show, we cannot rewind the show or the meal for you if you are late. The show must go on! We will seat you during a suitable break, so as to not disturb the performers and our seated guests

What time does the theatre close?
The show usually finishes around 22h45. Last rounds in Vaudeville will be served by midnight and the theatre closes at 00h30, at which time we encourage you to make use of your free entry to the Fez bar and nightclub conveniently located upstairs, which operates until 2am. On nights that we have live bands performing on our main stage, we will need you to vacate your table within a half hour of the show ending, unless you have purchased tickets to the concert for that night.

Unfortunately not, in line with our no ‘doggybag’ policy

Odds and ends…

I would like to arrange a private performance from your pool of talented performers for our table; is this possible?
Unfortunately we cannot outsource our entertainers to you, as they are contracted to perform exclusively in our show

May I organise my own performance artist to entertain our group once your show has ended?
You may, provided that you have booked out our private VIP lounge upstairs, so as to not infringe on our other guests

How often will your show content change?
Our show is constantly evolving as we introduce new acts and new performers to consistently offer you a world class show

Can we come in at about 9 or 10pm for a quick drink at the bar?
You are welcome to join us from 21h00 at the Fez bar upstairs from Vaudeville, however this does not grant you access to the Vaudeville show

Can I take photographs inside the venue?
You are welcome to be happy snappy before the show starts and during the breaks, but no photography is allowed during the show itself as it is disruptive to the performers. Similarly we would appreciate cell phones being turned to silent at the start of the show
