CITIZENS THEATRE UPDATE ON COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS
Last updated Wednesday 1 April
In response to the unprecedented situation created by Coronavirus and in line with the latest advice issued by the Scottish and UK Governments, it is with great regret that we must cancel all performances and classes until the end of June 2020. This includes all performances of Mrs Puntila and Her Man Matti at Tramway from 25 March – 11 April and our summer terms of drama classes.
Advance bookings are suspended for our Summer Academy in July as we continue to review the latest Government advice.
All those with a booking for a performance or class are entitled to a full refund and have been contacted directly by email or telephone. If you have an enquiry about your booking, please email email@example.com We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as our Box Office team continue to process as quickly as possible from home offices.
We will be in touch in the coming months about future productions and classes and to update you on our Redevelopment. But for now, our thoughts are with everyone who is dealing with the pandemic on the frontline.
Thank you to all our audiences and participants for the support you have shown for the Citizens Theatre and we hope you stay safe and well during this difficult time.
A message from Artistic Director, Dominic Hill:
I am hugely grateful to all our friends, participants and audience members who have shown us such support, not just in the past few weeks, but over the past few years as we rebuild our Gorbals Street home.
In response to the cancellation of events, many of you of have donated your ticket purchase or agreed to a credit for future performances – a big thank you for that too.
We are going to be quiet for a while, but many of us will still be busy in the background – planning, fundraising, volunteering and keeping in touch with as many of you as possible.
Our thoughts are with those trying to keep us safe and well at the present time. If there is one thing that I have been reminded of during the past weeks, it is the importance and power of community. And when this is over, theatre will be more important than ever as we come together to laugh and cry and be thrilled by the power of a shared, live performance. I can’t wait for that day.
