Press Release 30th March 2020:
PLAYERS LOOK TO NOVEMBER TO STAGE PRODUCTION:
By Brian Bennett
The Morpeth St George’s Community Players were forced to postpone their springtime production ‘Ladies Day’ by Amanda Whittington in guidance with the Government’s measures to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. The players had been scheduled to tread the boards from Thursday to Saturday March 19-21 in the Church Hall before the play was put on hold three days beforehand. Jared Johnson, chairman of the group, said: “We are looking at it as a postponement rather than a total cancellation and – I say this with fingers crossed – we are hoping to stage ‘Ladies Day’ later in the year from Thursday to Saturday, November 19-21 which would have been the slot for our next production.” Mr Johnson added: “Tickets will be valid for the rescheduled date. However people who purchased them from the Chantry Tourist Information Centre and who are looking for a refund should contact the CTIC.”
Notice of Postponement of Ladies Day
Due to the escalating Covid-19 epidemic, in light of the Government’s latest “strong advice” and bearing in mind the fact that a very significant proportion of our audience are in the “most vulnerable” category, St George’s Community Players has reluctantly been forced to postpone its production of “Ladies’ Day” which was due to be staged from Thursday 19 – Saturday 21 March 2020. This has been a very difficult decision to take, but I am sure you will appreciate the necessity for it.
We hope to be able to stage it at some future date – possibly as our November 2020 production.
Ticket costs will be refunded to members of the general public in due course. Patrons will be contacted in the near future to inform them of our proposals to amend next year’s subscriptions accordingly.
