SMP Theatre take the safety of our community very seriously. Due to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to postpone our production of Legally Blonde until June 2021 with a view to perform our annual Pantomime “Beauty and the Beast” in December 2020.
This was not an easy decision to make, but we believe that this is the right choice to protect both our audiences but also our friends, family, cast and crew. Rehearsals for Legally Blonde will cease this week. The decision was also made at this early stage to safeguard the group financially.
SMP Theatre had planned to take part in the 2020 Welwyn Drama Festival, but sadly this event has been cancelled. We hope to take part in 2021 and that when it becomes possible we can put on an evening of plays locally.
We also hope to put on a fundraising cabaret performance to help those who have supported our productions behind the scenes and now face tough times as a result of the current situation and numerous cancellations of their services. We hope that when we do so we can call on your support to attend.
If you have already booked you tickets for Legally Blonde the Millfield Theatre will contact you in due course regarding a refund. Please give them ample time to do so. As you can imagine they are incredibly busy at the moment.
We hope that everyone is safe, and that anyone that needs support is able to get some. Please feel free to reach out to us via social media or email for some entertainment, or human contact during these times of isolation.
We thank everyone for their continued support of us and we will see you all very soon!
In the meantime we are screening our old pantomimes on our Facebook page so please keep an eye on our page for the next chance to see one of our shows.
