CTC has continued to stay abreast of developments relating to the coronavirus and the possible timescales for the lifting of restrictions. At present, there is no confirmation of when the current situation will alter but it would appear that theatres will certainly be one of the last venues to escape social distancing.
Due to the nature of our productions, we have to plan at least 6 months in advance and we are therefore faced with making some very difficult decisions. We are hopeful that things will improve but obviously, we must continue to place the safety of both our performers and audiences at the heart of our decision. Following consultation with the Trustees, we have decided to postpone all 2020 productions.
We appreciate that this is incredibly disappointing and whilst we would like to delay making this decision, we feel that we must be prudent and sensible. Our plan is that we will reschedule shows where possible in 2021.
During difficult times, we know that theatre provides an escape and we are devastated that we are effectively having to cancel an entire year of shows, however, our resolve remains unwavering.
We will be back – bigger and better. In the meantime, please stay safe and take care.
