Local Theatre Groups Postpone Productions amid Coronavirus Measures
As the government announce measures such as ‘keeping away from theatres,’ local theatre companies have taken the decision to postpone upcoming productions and associated rehearsals.
First affected is PODS’ Goodnight Mr Tom which was due to open at The Paget Rooms, Penarth tomorrow (18th March). The production has been cancelled but with the hope of re-scheduling for later in the year.
Also due to play at The Paget Rooms was the Concept Players production of Betty Blue Eyes which was due to run 26th-28th March after having already been staged in Abergavenny.
Over in Cowbridge, youth theatre group ‘Total CAOS’ were due to stage Sister Act Jr on 4th July.
Treading the Boards were due to stage ‘Orphan Annie’ on 2nd May which has now been postponed as well as a host of their stage school activities.
Barry based ‘High Voltage’ which is a drama company for adults with learning difficulties have postponed their production of ‘The Poisoned Apple’ which was due to be staged at Dinas Powys Parish Hall on March 28th.
Billboard Ensemble have taken the decision to postpone both their adult and junior productions; Priscilla and Hairspray Jr.
We’d like to wish all companies and members all the very best and we cross our fingers that these productions can be rescheduled as soon as possible.
With the situation currently being so changeable we will update this list as and when we hear from other companies on any potential further postponements.
