I hope that this blog post finds you and your family well. At this extremely turbulent time where Coronavirus is sadly affecting many lives and businesses, we at The Arches Theatre are also very unsure of the future and what will happen to our little theatre ...
We will do whatever we can to keep the shows going at the Arches Theatre this August and September!
You will have seen that there's been a huge hit to the entertainment and theatre industry, with both Broadway and the West End closing their doors for the foreseeable future. It is an absolute travesty to the industry, the actors and everyone behind the scenes.
"But it is something that must happen to stop the spread of this terrible virus!"
It is so difficult to know what to do at this time. But right now, we are thinking positive and we are continuing to plough ahead with our plans to bring you three fantastic performances to our outdoor theatre this August and September. We are ever hopeful that the shows will go on.
We will, of course, be following the news and updates over the coming days/weeks/months and make an informed decision nearer the time. We will keep you and our ticket holders up to date with our plans. I think by August we are all going to need something to lift our spirits, and the Arches Theatre truly is the perfect place to do just that.
If you'd like to find out more about our theatre and the shows that we will be staging at our quirky outdoor theatre, please take a look at our website and to get an idea of what is in store at The Arches, why not watch the fantastic video of The Wet Mariners production of Romeo and Juliet, created by Steffi at SLO Media.
Until next time ...
