For Booking Information and Performance Times

The Theatre is currently Closed

18th March until to be advised 2020



In view of the Government advice issued on Monday we have, with regret, decided that we must cancel the productions due to be staged in April, May and early June. However, we are looking at ways of rescheduling those shows. So, we are considering the possibility of staging the Youth Group production of The Railway Children in early September and we will give you an update on this as soon as we can. Subject to the availability of performance rights, we plan to include The Audience in our 2020/21 season and, looking further ahead, hope that Constellations can be performed in the 2021/22 Season.

The position concerning our final production of the Season, The Scarlet Pimpernel,  will be kept under review, particularly as this show is due to transfer from Crayford to the Minack in Cornwall in the first week of August. We very much hope that we will still be able to perform this play and the cast and production team will be kept informed of current thinking as we move forward over the coming weeks.

Our Season Launch evening at the Theatre, scheduled for 18 April, is also cancelled but the Season will be announced on the website and on social media as soon as practicable, so please 'watch this space'.

A message for audience members who have booked for forthcoming productions.

1. 'The Railway Children'. When we are able to confirm that the play can be performed in September (likely to be the 10th to 12th) we will be able to offer you a straightforward exchange to one of those dates.

2. 'The Audience' and 'Constellations'. We can offer you vouchers for complimentary tickets, equivalent to the number you have already booked, for any production next season.

3. We know our patrons are very generous and some of you may feel that you are happy for your ticket payment to be considered as a donation to the theatre.

4. Some of you may still wish to have a refund.

 

Whichever of these options you choose, please would you be kind enough to let our Box Office Manager, Lesley Robins, know what you would like to do –

Thanks so much for your co-operation. Stay well and safe!
