Given the current advice from the government regarding COVID-19, we are sad to say that we will not be producing any shows in 2020. With the closure of the Elgive Theatre, we feel that the unknown situation later in the year doesn't give us enough confidence to plan a production for October/November.

The safety of our membership, support staff and customers has always been the priority. We also wanted to have a clear decision rather than a dripfeed of information before we announced the final decision: having hoped a postponment was going to be enough it is now clear we must cancel any plans for 2020. We hope that you understand.

But what about our fabulous show?

Sadly 9 to 5 The Musical has been cancelled for the foreseable future. This was a very difficult decision but the risk to the company financially as well as the unknown risks to the cast, crew and audience at this time meant we were not happy to commit to any further productions in 2020.

All ticket refunds will be handled by the Elgiva Theatre box office on 01494 582900

Next Steps:

We will be posting on social media and the website as we make decisions on future productions.
Our first bit of positive news is that we have secured the rights to Sweeney Todd and we are really excited to bring this dark and moody piece of musical theatre to the stage of the Elgiva Theatre in Autumn 2021.

Stay well.
