LATEST UPDATE - 21 May 2020


To all TOADS members and patrons - Covid19 and forthcoming shows


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 9 months time.


TOADS season 2020/2021 will now commence with the December 2020 production of Cranford at Christmas. The first three productions of the season - Allo Allo, Strictly Murder, Gaslight - will all be postponed until the following season (dates and personnel permitting). The theatre premises will officially open to the public from 1st December 2020 though online bookings will be available from 1st July as usual.


Theatre Club membership (season ticket holders) will be set at £60 (not £95 as per brochure) for the remaining 6 productions of season 2020/2021. Theatre Club members may still stipulate specific seats – to guarantee seat allocation please return your membership form and payment by 30th June 2020.


The Tadpoles youth group production in February 2021 may be converted to an adult (TOADS) production.


TOADS annual volunteer membership for 2020/2021 will be set at £14 (not £28 as previously). Membership forms will be posted in due course.


A donation web page will be set up on TOADS website and publicised to all our patrons via email and via social media.


We encourage all payments to be made by card if possible. Cash and/or cheques can still be accepted.

(ALL the above dates are subject to HM Government clearance and social distancing may have to be included as part of any opening measures)

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

Refunds, for any postponed productions, 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. 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.


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