Theatre group reschedules plays to next year
The Woy Woy Little Theatre group has rescheduled two of its upcoming plays at the Peninsula Theatre to take place in a year's time.
President Ms Christine Vale said the group had come to the difficult decision to postpone both its Ladies in Lavender and Appointment with Death productions in compliance with the latest restrictions around public gatherings.
Ladies in Lavender was due to launch in May with Appointment with Death to hit the stage in August.
Both shows will be performed at the same time next year.
The group's popular Flash Festival, which provides a platform for grassroots playwrights and aspiring actors, has also been postponed to next year.
It was due to take place in July.
Ms Vale said the group was also considering postponing its production of Ben Hur slotted for late October and early November.
"We made this decision last night to focus on the health and safety of our patrons, members, families and friends, and now the government has announced limits to gatherings over 100 people.
"Based on bookings, both productions were already popular, so we've decided to reschedule them for the same time next year.
"At this stage, we have not made a decision about Ben Hur but we will be monitoring the situation over the next few months, and keep everyone updated," Ms Vale said.
She confirmed all current ticketholders were entitled to a refund and will be contacted over the next few weeks.
