POSTPONEMENTS due to covid19


To all TOADS members and patrons - Covid19 and forthcoming shows


17 March 2020 - TOADS management committee met to discuss how to proceed in regards to Covid19 and recent government advice.


The decision has been taken to POSTPONE all shows that remain in the 2019/2020 season. These are:
Deathtrap (16 to 21 March)
Blithe Spirit (20 to 25 April)
The Passing Of The Third Floor Back (18 to 23 May)
Funny Money (15 to 20 June)
All four of these productions are now intended to become part of the 2021/2022 season which will be officially announced, in its entirety, in approximately 12 months time.


Hot Rock Productions Alice in Wonderland (28 March) has been CANCELLED.


Please understand that we take this action with the health and well-being of both our patrons and membership uppermost in our minds. We feel we have a moral duty, to all, to ensure that The Little Theatre runs no risk of becoming a covid19 "hotspot". We realise this will be a shock to many, not only our loyal patrons but also our dedicated volunteers. Even typing this is an upsetting task.


Refunds will be available to any patrons who wish them but, if you're able and so wish, you can donate your ticket fee to the theatre in support of local arts, this would certainly help us through this financially trying time.


Our box office will obviously be under some pressure for the next few weeks - please be understanding and patient, we will deal with everyone. We ask that you contact us (by phone or email) rather than the other way around - this will help alleviate box office pressures.


We also ask that patrons avoid coming into the theatre for refunds - we can refund via card over the telephone. If you paid by cash and require a cash refund, box office will remain open as normal for this week (daily 10.30am to 1.30pm) but, thereafter, box office will open to the public only on Mondays (10.30am to 1.30pm) until further notice (box office will remain operational but "behind closed doors" on other days).


If you are happy to donate your ticket fee to the theatre, there is no need to contact us - having said that, we have received many supportive emails which are heart-warming to say the least.


Season ticket (theatre club) holders will be also be contacted, by post, to explain how they may obtain refunds etc.


Finally, until normal service resumes, we wish all our patrons good health and, together, we shall get through this!
