Our Day Out - Cancelled
26th June 2020
Sadly, due to the ongoing situation surrounding the global difficulties the performing arts sector is facing associated with the Coronavirus pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this production. In earlier news you may have seen that we have already made this tough call regarding two of our other shows planned for this year "Jekyll & Hyde" and "Wind in the Willows."
The Management team remained hopeful that rules regarding isolation etc. may lift soon enough to be able to reschedule this performance, as it would be performed on our own premises, we felt we could manage any costs related to smaller audiences due to social distancing restrictions etc. however at this time we feel it would simply not be possible to rehearse this show and present it in what remains of the current years programme of events.
For the time being this project is therefore being put on the back burner, so to speak, and we hope that perhaps at some time in the not too distant future we will be able to put it back on the boil. On behalf of Kayleigh Smith, the project proposer and Director, and all the team at HAOS, we thank everyone who showed interest and support towards the project, in particular those prospective cast members that had already committed some of their valuable time.
The Video with a message by our Chairman about the original cancellations is included below as it highlights some of our thinking and reasoning.
