*** UPDATE***

Following the recent announcement that Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent will be placed in Tier 3 following the national lockdown, the New Vic will be postponing its production of Coppelia – A Mystery until Easter.

If you have a ticket booked for a performance of Coppelia – A Mystery, you don’t need to do anything, our Box Office team will be contacting all customers with tickets booked shortly to discuss your options.

Whilst we will not be open for performances, our Box Office and Theatre Shop will reopen to customers on Thursday 3 December.

Thank you for your continued support of the New Vic. We are committed to creating distinctive theatre in distinctive spaces, for audiences of all ages to be inspired and entertained – and we will carry on working on our plans for the future so that we can be here when audiences can come back to us for performances.
