Covid-19 and the theatre industry

Dear patrons of the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre


Amongst the drastic measures announced to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, is the current national lockdown (see government link above).  In view of this, please be advised that "Here’s to You - The Simon & Garfunkel Songbook", in addition to "An Unromantic Comedy" at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, have regrettably been cancelled, and future shows remain on hold.

Patrons who have bought tickets will be contacted directly by Computicket, to arrange full refunds.  Please contact Computicket on 0861 915 8000 if by any chance you have not yet received communication from them.


The entertainment and events industry is being particularly hard-hit at this time, and our thoughts go out to all those performers, musicians, technicians, production companies, directors and creative teams who are now left without work for the indefinite future.  In addition, there is no provision whatsoever in the government relief program, for freelance theatre crew, as is evident in the following link:  (https://www.facebook.com/sibongile.mngoma.12/videos/2553166494957256/UzpfSTY1ODY1MzAzNzoxMDE1NzA4OTY5OTE1ODAzOA/).
