Welcome to the Forums.

While it is possible to do this, it would require remote access to the computer at your local theatre.
It would be a lot easier, and at least as safe, to get a Dropbox account and save a copy of your cash book file to the dropbox account.
You can then use your computer at home to access that file. It is easy enough to have OpenOffice use the Dropbox account/folder as the default
That way you're only having to use one file, rather than making a file on the computer at the theatre, copying it to the Dropbox account, modifying the Dropbox version, then having to copy that over the file at the theatre in order to be working with the most up-to-date information.

You will have to install the OpenOffice software at home, as the software is, realistically, not accessible as an installed version from a remote location. There are ways of doing it, but they can get very complex.
OpenOffice 4.1.7 and LibreOffice 6.0.6.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate
