Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update - 28 September 2020
The safety of our audiences, actors, production teams and technical crew is paramount to us as we navigate this challenging time.
It is with a heavy heart that we can confirm that after careful study of the government guidelines and consultation with South Hill Park, EBOS has made the decision to cancel our upcoming production of Chicago.
Our cast, production and technical teams have worked immensely hard, both artistically and practically, to ensure we had a safe working environment and adhered to the ever changing guidelines, however, the safety of our members has always been our primary concern, and we felt that we could not continue as a consequence of the rapidly rising infection rates.
The magic of theatre lies in its live performances and it is not something that can be experienced in the same way remotely. Its ability to lift people and entertain people even in times of difficulty is unparalleled and so we are extremely grateful to all of our audiences, who have continued to support us for as long as they can. At this time, we must come together to support each other. Theatre, amateur and professional, relies on its audiences entirely to exist. We will rely on you in the future more than ever.
Many theatres that have been forced to cancel performances are charitable enterprises and have reached out to their audiences and asked for their support by donating their tickets. While EBOS has chosen not to ask for donations at the present time, we would ask that our patrons continue to support South Hill Park Arts Centre, as we have had a close association since its inception and is where we continue to perform our main productions. SHP offer gift vouchers to use when the arts centre is fully open, or you can make a donation to the Trust.
