In light of the latest government advice about COVID-19, it is with huge sadness that we confirm that our world premiere co-production of ‘Maggie May’, which would have opened officially tonight (17 March), will no longer play remaining performances at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch.
Further advice about performances at Leeds Playhouse and Leicester Curve will be confirmed by both venues in the coming days.
We’d like to thank the wonderful cast and creative team for having made a beautiful show, and are so sorry that many people won’t get to see it.
Ticket holders for the remaining performances will be contacted by the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch box office in the next 48 hours – please wait to be contacted, as our small team will be very busy dealing with the impact of this unexpected news.
As a much loved charity serving the local community, the cancellation of lots of events at the theatre will be financially devastating for us, particularly as our public funding received represents less than 15% of the costs of running the theatre and putting on productions and participatory projects.
As an audience member, if you are able to consider donating the value of your tickets for ‘Maggie May’ to the theatre, rather than seeking a refund, this would help us greatly at a difficult time. We’re incredibly grateful for anything you can do in this respect.
Throughout the week, we’ll be posting website updates and in contact about other events and activities scheduled to take place over the next few weeks. We’ll also post updates to our social media channels.
Thank you so much for your support and patience during a period of great uncertainty – it’s very much appreciated
